Since 2006, we have been passionately involved in the apparel industry. We can help you with every step of the process including; initial concept, first patterns, sourcing, first sample, production patterns, sample sets, grading, production markers, and small batch to large scale production.
We have worked with brands from all over the country. Some of these brands are well established and have been around for years. Others are just starting out. We work with brands that wholesale, sell direct to retail, and just about everything in between. For single styles we ask for 100% down. For multiple styles we ask for 50% down, and 50% upon completion. Deposits are refundable for 14 days after payment date. We understand how competitive the apparel market is, and we would love to start a conversation with you on how we can help.
We've been doing this for years...
The first pattern is always the toughest. Maybe you have something that has an amazing fit. Maybe it's just a sketch. We have a library of pattern blocks that are market tested, and market approved.
Sourcing materials can be an intimidating process. From sample yardage to fabric minimums, we'll work with you and remove some of the anxiety from the sourcing process.
Once we have an initial pattern and your desired fabric, it's time to see where we really stand. We will work closely with a domestic sample maker that delivers a world class product at an extremely competitive price.
Grading is taking your sample size and creating all the other sizes you plan on offering for each style. Your fit is everything. We'll work with you to establish a Grade Rule that is specific to your brand and the expectations of your customer. Then we'll print or email production markers to the factory based on your fabric specifications.
If you just need 50 pieces of a style, we can make that happen. Our small batch production house is the ideal factory for you brand to get it's start. Extremely low minimums and experienced operators make for a great combination.
If you need 5,000 pieces of a style, we can make that happen as well. In addition to our in-house production facility, we have worked with the same network of high capacity factories (both domestic and overseas) for over a decade. Saying that they are great people is an understatement.
Since 2006 we have been making things happen for brands from all over the country.
Together we have over 65 years of combined experience.
