    Textiles Manufacturers

    Pendu546 Newbie
      Hi,

      I'm an owner of a small clothing company that needs expand it's selection by quite a bit by Spring 2010. I'm currently looking for clothing manufacturers for items like tees, tanks, (cotton) dresses, polos, hoodies, woven button up shirts, jeans, leather sandals, and a few more items. So I was wondering what's the best way to search for foreign manufacturers? I've been searching for a couple days now but I've only found a couple companies that can fill 1 or 2 of my needs.

      Thanks,

      Phill

          You may want to try contacting an intermediary company (such as Janco Overseas Ltd). These companies help pair retailers in the US with overseas manufacturers. My previous company dealt exclusively with Janco and they were great. They did everything from sourcing, negotiating unit cost, design, production, and everything in between. They used to even send their people to the various factories we used to check that all US child labor laws and standards were equal! Basically, companies like Janco have major connections and experience with overseas manufacturers and save you alot of time and headaches when sourcing overseas. Of course, I don't know what type of volume you are dealing with, but it might be worth the time to just call and see what they (or other similar companies) can do for you. Good luck!

                Sounds like you would like to get quotes from many different manufacturers before deciding. I would use www.contractauction.com to post your job. That way, you can get many textile or clothing manufacturers to bid on your job, and you can have your choice of manufacturer/quote. It is also free to use, so it is a very useful resource.

                Good luck in your search.
