    How to find Los Angeles based clothing manufacturers

    Tsantiago Newbie

      Hi, This is Jordan. I currently own a women's lingerie and swim wear business that imports and distributes from South America to America. I have ran into MANY issues over the past years dealing with my international manufacturers ( quality control, late shipments, high import taxes, etc.). We want to source domestic, Los Angeles based manufacturer's so our business can have more control over production. We also do not produce extremely high volume so the slower turn around time, shipping costs, import taxes and duties are not benefiting our business.

       

      How should we go about sourcing reliable, price conscious full package manufacturer's in LA who have worked with lingerie and swim wear in the past? On average, we used to produce 2,500 to 4,000 units a month. After visiting the California Market Center, LA Textile Show, and downtown garment industry I haven't found much luck in finding a company that fulfills our needs.

       

      Please let me know if you have any advice!!!
