Are you the owner of an online clothing store, brick-and mortar boutique, or a fashion designer who wants to create your own private label clothing line?
Once you've planned out the design for your perfect garment, it can be difficult to start finding a clothing manufacturer and getting your clothing designs made. Especially if that's something you've never done before.
Well, we understand, and we’re here to help! We’ve simplified how to manufacture your own private label clothing using MakersValley's unique online platform into 5 clear steps. Follow the process below, and you'll be selling your own unique Italian-made clothing designs in no time!
Step 1. Create a MakersValley design listing
Include as many details as possible in your project - more is better at this step of the process!
You'll need to upload your clothing pattern and photos of your physical sample or professional design rendering. The quotes you receive from the MakersValley network of Italian manufacturers will only be accurate if you enter complete information. If you have any doubts, reach out to your account manager in Messages.
Step 2. Send your product sample & clothing pattern to us
Your pattern and physical sample are your instructions for the factory.
In addition to uploading your pattern and photos of your physical sew-by sample in your project on the Platform, you’ll also need to ship your apparel prototype to us, unless you're using a product from the MakersValley Factory Design Catalog.
Step 3. Review your Italian-made garment sample
Once MakersValley ships you the finished garment sample from your factory match, you will be able to use the platform to send them your sample feedback. If you love the sample the way it is, let your factory partner know using the online feedback form, and we’ll send you the production invoice for approval.
If you’re not 100% satisfied or if you'd like to see your garment made in different fabrics, sizes, or colors, just let us know, and we’ll send you a new quote for your modified sample request.
Step 4. Go into production
Once you’ve approved your sample, we’ll send you a shipping and customs invoice and handle all the logistics to get your order from Italy to your doorstep.
Once you complete your invoice payments, your factory will get to work, and you will receive your production order in 6 weeks.
Step 5. Reorder your best sellers
Log back into your account and tell us when you’d like to repeat any of your design orders, even in a different color or style if you like. The MakersValley platform saves all of your previous design information and feedback as a digital tech pack, so reorders are easy and seamless.
