Our Sewing Services

We offer full service garment production

Full service garment production includes quoting price based on a tech pack, making counter samples, producing fabrics, sourcing trims, sourcing accessories, sewing the garment all together, Qc'ing the garment and then ironing, folding and packing it.

The key to success is being prepared before you approach us. Do you know exactly what you want and have you written it down in technical terms? If you don’t know then we have to guess and that is a recipe for disaster. If you haven’t written it down then we have to listen to your speak English, translate into Vietnamese and hope we understood you correctly. Hope is not a good strategy for success. There is a high chance details will get lost in translation. These are the reasons why we insist you have professional tech packs prepared in advance so we get it right the first time and don’t get into a “he said, she said” heated debate one day before production is supposed to begin. If you are not familiar with tech packs then please read this article that explains what should be in an apparel tech pack.

Our service includes delivering your garments in carton boxes to the nearest port. This is known as FOB services. In other words, we sell to you on FOB terms. FOB stands for free on board. Learn more about shipping incoterms here. When a garment manufacturer quotes an FOB price, they are responsible for everything up to the nearest port. For an example, we always quotes FOB price (Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC)) port. It means that our price gets your goods to the HCMC port. We turn the goods over to your freight forwarder at the HCMC port. You have to pay all the cost of transportation from HCMC to your warehouse and you pay the freight forwarding company to make it happen.

Another way to describe our services is that we are an OEM manufacturer. OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer. In our case the equipment is apparel. OEM means that we produce your designs. You design a garment and communicate all the details to us in a tech pack. We then buy fabric, buy trim and accessories and sew it together. In the garment industry there are two kinds of OEM. CMT or FOB. FOB is explained above. CMT means that we just cut and sew. You supply fabric, trim and accessories. We only manage the labor. We used to accept CMT orders but not anymore. Our core business is: we produce your garment designs that use circular knit fabrics.

If you want us to help you with design and development then please tell us upfront. If we assist you with design then there will be additional costs if your quantity is small.

CMT explained in more detail

What does CMT mean? CMT stands for cut make and trim or cut make and thread. You will hear it definded both ways.

CMT refers to a price component in the cost breakdown of a garment manufacturing price. It's basically the labor component.

In order to understand CMT as price component lets look at a cost breakdown that includes Fabric; Trim; Accessories; Cut and Make

Main components of a cost breakdown

1. Fabric is just fabric
2. Trim are extras that stay on the garment when you put it on such as buttons and care labels
3. Accessories are extras that you put in the trash when you put it on: poly-bag, carton box, silica gel
4. Cut and Make is the labor cost including overhead like water, electricity and cost or running factory
5. Then there is profit

There is no official black and white definition of CMT. Personally I think it should just be CM. The Trim or Thread should part of the trim price component.

CM can also refer to a kind of factory.

A CM factory is just selling labour. A CM factory does not source fabric, trim or accessories. The buyer is responsible for fabrics, trims and accessories.
In contrast, there are FOB factories that source fabric and are responsible for the fabric. FOB price includes cost of labour, sourcing fabric, trims and accessories from A to Z.

Original Design Manufactuer (ODM)

ODM stands for original design manufacturer and implies that we design for you as well as produce. There are two kinds of ODM. One kind is where you give us direction, colors, concept ideas and our designers use your ideas as inspiration to design a collection. The other type of ODM is: we design according to our own design concepts and if you like our styles then you buy without any input or changes. At this time we are not doing ODM and don't have any catalogues for your to choose from.
