Bon Fabrics set to increase prices amid surging supplier costs

Some materials have skyrocketed by 40 percent over past six months

Bon Fabrics Isle of Man is increasing prices on certain items from today (6 September).

Items such as yarn and plain cotton are among those which will be inflated after the business has seen considerable cost rises from its suppliers – with some materials skyrocketing four times over the past six months.

A shortage of empty containers, vessel omissions and freight fuel surcharges are being blamed for the move.

They say due to margins being eroded it’s no longer possible to absorb the extra costs.
