SAMPLING

Professional service - Dedicated speciality sewing machines

The moment you’re ready, your styles are moved into our sample & development studio. Your shapes are then digitally drawn on our 2D AUTO-CAD computerized pattern system. With 20 dedicated sample tailors & seamstresses your styles are then sewn following the CAD marks – Max tolerance of 3 mm.

All our machines are dedicated to task at hand, for example, for the inside leg seams, elasticated ankles, under the bust or waist bands, all will use speciality machines to ensure your styles handle any kind of work out, all made to perfection.

Sampling is by far the most critical part of any process we handle. Making samples can take just as long as making production. The average time from pyament to the fabric in our hands to the samples ready to uplift, 6 weeks.

Our customer approval rate of 80% for the first round of sampling, it may only require some simple edits to see your collection approved & ready to order your bulk.

TIME LINES


A good hand over clearly marked with notes explaining any edits you want incorporated, from payment to delivery to your door in 6 weeks. AMAZING!

Complex handovers with additional emails requesting changes can cause weeks or more in delays, so try to be clear & sure of your shape requests at the beginning. Keep things simple. Front & back images & any changes marked, minor details we will go over later with you.

Selecting your colours from stock can save 1 to 2 weeks in your sampling. If you select stock fabrics for production, then can save up to one month in your production.

Selecting colours to be imported, adds approx. 3 - 4 weeks to the production timeline. You may select some colours from stock & some to be imported.

We now also offer a re-order package, just 300 units (example 150 sets) across 10 styles as long as no major changes to the original styles.

If your selection your colours from our stocks, then expect your re-order to be in your hands 4 weeks from payment made. If your making new styles, then re-orders are 500 units MOQ across 10 styles.

 

PATTERN & GRADING

2D AUTO CAD DIGITAL PATTERNS

 

We make your patterns & grading working from our 2D AUTO-CAD pattern system, digitally.

Digital patterns have many advantages over paper. The main one being precision. The max tolerance is 3mm with the result being your styles are patterned & graded to perfection.

Once your patterns are approved, they are cut using the digital cutter, never by hand, to be sent to the fabric cutting room. The team of cutters in the fabric room will check that the CAD marks are adhered to using a rotary hot knife, ensuring hems are dead straight, grades perfect with no uneven edges. Your samples are now constructed.

Once your samples are made, we check back against the initial CAD marks to ensure precision. Your styles are now all sent to the QC department where they are checked in three layers against the original approved specs.

Your samples are now sent to you via DHL.

When it comes to bulk orders, we use the same process to cut & prepare your fabric ready to be sewn.

All production follows the same meticulous process from the day it starts till it’s ready to be bar-coded, packed in a bio-degradable bag & sent out for dispatch.

 

QUALITY CONTROL

 

Each garment passes through several layers of trained personel in our QC Dept.


Each layer checks for specific issues, for example, sizing & grading, loose threads and so on through to the final QC where the goods are examined one last time under magnifiers & white lights before being packed in a BIO-degradable bag, bar tagged & boxed.


FEES


Our charges are for the final garment, bar tagged, packed in a BIO degradable bag, boxed & ready for dispatch. They Inc. all pattern making, grading & as many accessories as possible.

We charge 2 X estimated wholesale price + $30 sampling fee per style.

EXAMPLE - ALL USD


Sports Top - $14.00
2 X $14 = $28 + $30
Therefore sample fee = $58.00

Leggings $22.00
$11 X 22 = $44 + $30
Therefore sample fee = $72.00

EDITS & SERVICING


Any samples that you consider requiring any edits or servicing are handled free of charge, as long as you are not requesting changes to the original approved hand over.

Once you’re satisfied with the final samples, we double check costings to ensure the prices supplied were exact, some minor adjustments may need implementing.
