Small batch production is a craft as old as time. For centuries, artisans have cooked up, assembled, and delivered quality handmade clothes and other products from their homes, and in Italy, from the factory floors of family-owned clothing manufacturers.
Every industry has a formula for overhead versus profitability. Fashion is no different.
Another month, and we’re stoked to announce – ANOTHER MakersValley Platform release!
We’re making it easier than ever now to manage your clothing manufacturing project online. Last release, you learned about how we streamlined sharing images from your Timeline with your followers on social media. This release, we’re giving you the ability to share even more.
Let’s jump into it.
Starting your own clothing line is exciting! But if you’ve never done it before, knowing how to get from point A to point B can be confusing and overwhelming. One of the first things you’ll need to do to start selling your own clothing line is to find a manufacturer who can make your designs at a cost that you can afford and in a quantity that you can actually sell to customers.
As an e-commerce shop owner or the owner of your own brick & mortar boutique, these coming months may present a turning point for your business’s supply chain. The trade war between China and the United States is just revving up, and from farmers to automakers, no industry is guaranteed safety.
Traditional wholesale manufacturing poses certain challenges for fashion designers and boutique owners. Wholesale manufacturers can change their prices on boutiques suddenly, resell original designs to other boutique owners for less, or shutter their doors altogether, leaving you and your customers at a loss for your favorite products.
