We manufacture your sample requests in one size, most commonly size S with up to 12 designs per request & most commonly will be dispatched in max 4 weeks.
Requests for over 12 designs, or requests for other size runs require additional time & dependant on how busy we are, may or may not be possible. Contact us via email with your requests
We pattern & grade according to international body measurements. See our size chart.
We charge 2 X our estimated wholesale price + a management fee of $30 USD per style.
Example – a Activewear legging priced at $19 USD will cost 2 X $19 + $30 = $68.00
Our prices are all-inclusive to the finished articles. Accessories such as heat press, zipper pulls & so on are included (non-branded*). Samples are individually packed into Bio-degradable bags, dispatched via courier to any overseas address.
The cost to send up to 12 samples overseas via FedEx is approx. $70 to $100 USD.
Selecting plain fabrics for your samples
Selecting our fabric stocks & colours will see your samples being made faster than when requesting colours that have to be imported.
Importing colours come in two meters sections & add 3-4 weeks to the time.
If your eager to get your samples you may request them made in same fabric but a different colour to hand.
Adding printed fabrics to sampling
We print in China using recycled Nylon & Polyester – Allow 3 weeks to print & import.
Whilst we prepare & print fabrics, we get started on your patterns.

We run a team of 20 speciality sample sewers, all with more than 10 years’ experience constructing & assembling premium grade Active & Swimwear collections. Once you have received your prices then we are ready to get started on your patterns using our digitally 2D auto CAD software. At this point you’re be handed over to your sample activewear specialist, who will go over your collection with you to ensure all is crystal clear on what you’re expecting. In 4 to 6 weeks your samples will be packed & readied for FedEx to be flown to your home address, approx. 7-10 working days transit.
Once you have your samples in hand & had a chance to try them on, then it’s here that we set up an online video call, discussing any design/s you feel require attention. Simple edits are revised using the digital software & for anything other we may remake, in most cases free of charge (as long as you’re not making changes to your original handover).
We handle patterns digitally using our computerized 2D AUTO-Cad Plotter & software. Working digitally is a dream compared to paper patterns. Over many years we have saved thousands of shapes in our digital library, meaning any design you supply will have already been made & graded. All we do is make some edits to any approved design matching your request, save as your name & your patterns done.
A good example of working digitally would be the first collection we made for Victoria’s Secret. The hand over was easily understood, only photos & screen shots with no measurements, which we then produced 12 samples from. From these, 9 were selected & moved directly to production.
With a good clear handover your collection can experience the same, all depends on the handover we receive.
We do not require complex tech packs, with the majority of designs sent as screen shots, front & back images with notes on changes to be implemented. Working digitally allows us to make edits to any shape in minutes rather than hours.
Edits & Remakes
Should any samples require edits, then the following is true.
1. Samples requiring only slight edits. These are reworked digitally on our 2D Auto-CAD, not remade. We can hold an online video call if you request, to go over the changes.
2. Obvious errors are most commonly misunderstandings from your hand over. In most cases we remake free of charge.
3. You’re requesting changes to be made that were not clearly marked on your hand over or you’re requesting to make changes to your original request, $30 USD + 2 X estimate price
Quality control is one of the most important part of the manufacture of activewear. We run three sections of QC
1. Checks for loose threads or any tiny blemishes
2. Ensure fits & grades are as precise as possible
3. Each piece is checked under magnifiers & white lights for any blemishes before dispatch.
Quality approved samples have their branded fabric hangers attached & packed individually into a BIO-degradable bag, dispatched via FedEx to any overseas address.
Your samples arrive clearly labelled showing code, colour & size. Do not remove until they have been approved.
Samples are dispatched via FedEx or DHL – 7 to 10 working days to your door.

I. Samples are constructed assembled using machines geared to handle just one task, to the completed article.
II. We use a small heat press machine for your samples which allows us to make one by one. You may notice some small cracking or flaking. For production, we use larger higher-grade machines & import in from overseas.
III. *Branded accessories are priced independently of your sample price & will be invoiced separately
IV. You may also select to pick up your samples using your own courier account or by hand.
