Dear Apparel Entrepreneur,
Congratulations on your new venture into sewn product design and manufacturing!
We’re happy that you’ve found FABRIC in your hunt for resources. We are proud to offer every service that an Apparel Entrepreneur needs under one roof. FABRIC is a unique and special place and we haven’t yet found anything comparable in the US. We created this place because as designers/brand owners ourselves, we had the same problem you do….where to find expert, industry-standard, no-minimum manufacturing and design development services. In our quest to solve this problem for others, we ended up creating a one-of-a-kind resource where everything is under one roof along with the education and assistance a new brand owner needs if they’ve never designed, developed, manufactured, and sold a sewn product. The process is complex, filled with obstacles, and has hundreds of steps. With very little resources available to help navigate the steps, we’ve made it our mission to provide everything from samples, prototyping, sourcing, and manufacturing, to branding, websites, logos, photography, classes, industry directory, a runway, hair/makeup salon, and more in one place! In just a few years, FABRIC has assisted and grown hundreds of emerging brands into successful ones!
Helping hundreds of brand owners who make hundreds of different types of sewn products understand how to navigate hundreds of steps is something we specialize in. We have created a detailed STEP-BY-STEP SYSTEM that is easy to navigate. Whether you are just starting or you already have tech packs and samples, whether you are creating an apparel line or a sewn product/invention, the steps are pretty universal and can help you see if you’ve skipped any vital steps in getting to where you are now and what needs to happen to move forward. It can also help you decide if you would like to take on your own production management and quality control or if you’d like to HIRE OUR PRODUCTION MANAGERr to do that for you. You can even save money by learning how to do some of the basic/easier tasks yourself or hire us to handle them for you.
First, you have to see it to believe it.

How much will this cost?
How long does it take?
How do I get a tech pack made?

What can I do to make my product cost less?
Step 2 is to learn the answers to all of these questions and more in our DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING CONSULTATION before you dive in so you can learn what it takes to get through the hundreds of design and manufacturing steps.
