FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

We hope this page will help solve any queries you may have about working with us to create your products. However, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us directly for more details or to go over an issue that hasn’t been covered here.

How do you prepare a quote, from a sketch or a sample? We prefer to prepare a quote from an existing sample. We would produce a new sample for the client and this process would indicate the time it takes to produce the product, thereby giving an accurate idea of the production costs for the client.

What are the payment terms for sampling? The payment terms for sampling would usually be higher than for a production run. This is so we can go over the pattern, do a few samples and to ‘get to know’ your products. This payment can be made via bank transfer or Paypal.

Is there anything you do not currently produce?  Yes, we do not currently produce swimwear, knitwear, most outwear, pet clothing, most sport wear children's clothing and hosiery. 

What are the payment terms for production orders? We require a minimum  40% advance payment before the production begins. This payment can be made via bank transfer or Paypal.

What are your minimum quantities for an order? We don't have a minimum and work with up to 500 units per product, however we can discuss larger runs if needed. 

What would your turnaround time on an order be? The turnaround time depends on the complexity of the product, the quantity of pieces required and the current work load.

What sort of fabrics do you work with? We work with all woven fabrics in a variety of weights: cotton, linen, silk, chiffon, wool and some heavier weight jerseys.
