Clothing Manufacturer Frequently Asked Questions

Finding a trusted manufacturer is not as simple as it may appear.  You may opt for a referral, Google search, use a paid platform to connect you to one, or work with a trusted vertically integrated domestic manufacturing source specifically for emerging designers like TEG.  A vertical setup holds the manufacturer accountable for all steps of the process, ensuring quality and consistency throughout.

Manufacturing costs range on the style, construction, fabrics, and quantity for each style.  This makes it tricky for manufacturers to give a quote before reviewing a sewn garment.  In general, domestic manufacturing in small volumes (ie. 50 pieces per style, including all sizes and two colorways) can range from $20-80 per piece of clothing for most styles.  More complex garments can of course be much more expensive.  The larger the volume, the lower the per-piece price is.

Starting a clothing line is easy at TEG, and we work to make it even easier, avoiding the many pitfalls new designers may face on their own.  In general, you start with your designs, go through the development process, then production, then marketing and sales of your garments.

Look no further than TEG!  TEG was founded in 2005 based on the model of sustainable and ethical practices, long before they were buzz words.  TEG is a best-in-class leader in domestic manufacturing with these principals, specializing in working with emerging designers and established high-end brands.

A manufacturer’s reputation will tell you a lot about them.  Many sources will say they can do anything.  Knowing they have a reputation for quality work, on-time delivery, and length of business will give you the most accurate information about a manufacturer.  TEG prides itself no being in business for 20 consecutive years ith a full-time, year-round team in its vertical operation in Los Angeles.

This can vary greatly depending on the manufacturer’s setup, machinery, and specialty.  TEG specializes in smaller volume production, providing 1-50 pieces per style in-studio, for high-end specialty projects, and a 50 piece MOQ for its factory-level production for most brands.  This includes all sizes and two colorways per style.

Checking to ensure your manufacturer is fully compliant with local laws and regulations is important.  These are easy for a small business to bypass.  Making sure your manufacturer is compliant can ensure your values align and limit your liability as well.  Also, let the manufacturer tell you their values.  You’ll be able to gain a lot of insight from direct conversations.

Customizations are endless in domestic, small-volume production.  Whether it be styles made from deadstock garments, fabric remnants, or customized with embroidery, screen printing, etc. the options are endless.  Having an experienced team to help you orchestrate them well is key.  TEG is proud to have many examples of customized projects in its Portfolio and Case Studies to highlight its work.

TEG has a Fabric Sourcing team that works with emerging designers on their fabric and trim sourcing.  There is great value in working with a professional team, to ensure not only the right fabrics are chosen, but the right weight, elasticity, etc are decided.  These nuances have a large impact on a design and a professional can help you navigate this.  TEG’s sourcing services also connect you directly to the sources, so you can have working relationships with them long-term, even as you grow your brand.

The steps are generally the same worldwide, which makes it generally easy to learn.  The quality of the work behind each step is what makes the difference.  The steps include design, sourcing, patternmaking, samplemaking, grading, marking, cutting, and sewing of production. Doing all steps in a one-stop, vertically integrated fashion help ensure a streamlined process.

You should always be able to tour a manufacturer’s facility to ensure they meet your standards.  In fact, this is one of the most important steps in choosing a good fit.  Transparency is key so you can be sure your standards are met as well as legal obligation to work with sources following the local laws and regulations.

Small-volume production is a tricky thing to do, making the pricing quite different from larger volumes.  Finding a source that specializes in this is key, ensuring they have physical examples of similar types of garments to show their work of.  Pricing will depend on the volume and complexity, so there may not be large room for negotiation.  But contracts should always be clear and fair for both parties outlining the terms and conditions for each.

Ask your manufacturer to sew you a sample garment. This is the best way to see their work in actuality and provide a reference for them to match all production pieces.  Also looking into their clientele, years in business, and reputation are all great ways to get a better understanding of the source.
