finding manufacturer of Rowe fabric

I saw a Rowe sofa in a showroom and liked the fabric. Salesman said it was $70/yard to order through them. Does anyone know what mills Rowe uses? The Pattern is listed as N-10798 80 Bark and is 60% poly, 20% cotton, 20% linen. I've Googled the number and looked at some of the more popular mills (Duralee, Kravet, Robert Allen), but no dice. Obviously $70 is way above their cost or they couldn't sell a sofa for $1100.

Your so right, Rowe isn't about building quality furniture and that the stores salesman was only interested in selling a sofa. He's not making any commission on selling fabric.
The fact is where Rowe buys their fabrics from is pretty much privileged information, only a few associates in purchasing has this information. They buy from a wide variety of fabric mills, mostly imported. Pattern numbers usually always changed at the manufacturers level from the mills numbers.
If you really want this fabric, purchase a yard of it, then cut into swatches and send to as many online and local fabric outlets as you can find.
