As a clothing brand, agency, sourcing/buying agent or importer who should rely on clothing manufacturers to do the following:
---Make samples according to your designs or tech packs
---Be able to recreate samples if you have reference samples
---Giving advice on how your clothing could be made more sustainable materials or fabric, of course relate to our MOQ and your target prices.
---Offer suggestions on developing styles in reasonable pattern, measurements and sewing method base on your concepts.
---To develop styles and fabrics for new seasons, most of buyers have 2 or 3 or 4 seasons for their collections annually, the manufacturer would source or develop fabrics and accessories for apparel styles, and send you fabrics & accessories quality for approval, make lab-dips for approval, first proto samples for approval, sales samples (if need) and pre-productions samples for approval before process bulk production.
Clothing manufacturers are textile professionals which make different clothes all the time. They almost never rely on established and available templates or patterns.
However, if you have tech packs or other detailed instructions, then we can follow up all details to develop and make samples, Not only we can save time to make fabric, accessories and samples , but also to make proto samples correct as close as possible.
What is a Tech Pack ?
A tech pack is a document that contains technical information about the garments you want a clothing manufacturer to make for you. Here’s what tech packs include:
---Technical sketches of apparel front view, back view, all details incl. sewing method, placements of accessories etc.
---Fabrics: composition, yarn sizes, weight, density, prints details (if need) etc.
---Measurements list (which size you like to make samples)
---Labels and hangtag details
---Packaging details ( paper box , plastic bag, and carton details etc)
If you're an established brand and you're switching manufacturers. Maybe because you want to have garments factories which can work for your brand closer to your markets. You know, to reduce carbon footprint and all. Or you're a startup and you want your product to be similar to an already existing one from other brands.
