Preparing to do my Philip Lim knock-off tank tops, I ordered lengths of damask and China silk from Thai Silks in California who are totally professional. I expect the silk will arrive within a week. They are a pleasure to order from, prompt and personal.
HOWEVER, after using the RIT dye charts and calculating that I need a box each of purple, tangerine, royal blue and evening blue for my different layers, and filling in their stupid survey to get 10% off my purchase, I discover that this company doesn't fill overseas orders.
Yup, after a good forty-five minutes with these RIT people, I was shoved out of their cyber door by their company Phoenix.
No info or directions to their overseas distributors, no thanks for completing their survey, no "Gee, we wish we could expand our business."
