Wholesale Kids Clothing Manufacturers
Starting Out On Your Wholesale Manufacturing Journey
Find A Textile Designer
Don’t Scrimp On Detail
Because manufacturers will use your drawings to make your kids clothing designs, they obviously need to be super accurate. Every detail that you want to see on your final finished garments should be detailed in the drawings.
The drawings need to show exactly where you want any applique or printed design to appear on each clothing piece. And don’t forget to include the sizing range you want, the types of fabric and materials you want to use, as well as your colour choices.
I found during this period it was worth double and triple checking the details. And unless you are experienced in textile drawing, I would always recommend getting a professional textile designer to help you with this part. It’s too important to cut corners.
So take your time and just know that it’s not unusual for it to take between 3 and 6 months until you’re confident about your final designs.
The Learning Curve
As someone who has been manufacturing for many years now, I can say I definitely experienced a learning curve when I started manufacturing kids and wholesale baby clothes.
I was really clear about the way I wanted to manufacture and the quality I wanted for my wholesale customers, so I wanted to be involved as much as possible with every decision. The more I knew about the manufacturing process – from sourcing fabrics, dyeing, cutting and sewing – the more control I had over the finished Baby Blanks clothing range. I made some mistakes in those early days, but the great thing is I learned to avoid repeating them.
Wholesale Kids Clothing Manufacturers: Doing It Overseas
Wholesale kids clothing manufacturers all experience a lot of the same challenges when they start out. The manufacturing process is never easy, particularly when you are manufacturing overseas. As some of you may know, last year I travelled to China to visit the factories that manufacture Baby Blanks wholesale kids clothing. I got to meet the people who are involved in the process of weaving, dyeing, cutting and sewing. I also got an insight into the everyday working conditions. I wrote a blog about my visit – Wholesale Clothing Manufacturing.
