Vietnam has been operating in the ladies fashion manufacturing business for six years and has built a solid foundation for delivering quality driven, ethically produced, design lead products. Originating in Ho Chi Minh City, MUK Ltd. Clothing has since grown each year to its present capacity of 200,000 garments per month. MUK Ltd. offers exceptional customer service at the most competitive prices. Using high quality, trend focused fabrics and trim, we offer a diverse and commercial range of ladies wear. Producing garments for clients located all around the globe, we are currently exporting to countries such as England, USA, Canada, Australia and Germany.

Contact me and I will introduce you to MUK Ltd. ladies fashion manufacturer in Vietnam.

MUK Ltd. offers OEM apparel manufacturing service that includes sourcing fabric, trims, and accessories. They will sew the garments according to your tech packs and deliver the finished goods to the nearest Ho Chi Minh City port. Their merchandising teams focus on sourcing high quality, trend focused fabric and trims. With their vast network of suppliers throughout Vietnam, China and Korea they are continually seeking new suppliers. This allows them to supply their customers with up to date trends with an efficient lead time.

They have their own sampling room in Saigon and are able to test and develop existing designs. They take their customers from conception to completion.

They have on site QC and QA inspection teams who monitor every stage of the production process. Their QA teams check the factory’s inline and final quality inspections following strict AQL standards.

MUK Ltd. sources fabric out of China, Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam. The majority of the fabric they work with is ITY out of Korea. They have great sources for Georgette, Crepe, Chiffon, Cambric and Chintz. They get the fabric into Vietnam, to the factories and re-exported within 30 to 90 days.

They have to honor their fabric suppliers minimum order quantities. This is 1,000 meters of fabric. So, if you consumption per garment is 1.5 linear meters per garment then their minimum, in terms of garments, would be around 650 pieces - that's per color. If you want to do less than that then they need to pay a surcharge to order quantities of fabric below their suppliers MOQ.

Many people contact us about clothing manufacturers in Vietnam and they ask for Eco fabrics. The definition of Eco fabrics was a mystery for us and we were well aware of greenwashing so Chris decided to investigate himself. He started by attending the Intertextile trade show in Shanghai and met with as many Eco fabric suppliers as he could. He asked questions and started to make sense of the whole sustainability in textiles movement. Then he attended the Outdoor Retailer show in Denver, Colorado and met brands and fabric suppliers that market themselves as Eco. Upon his return to Vietnam where he lives and works as an apparel production advisor, he started identifying sources of Eco fabrics close to home.

If you are an established brand or a start up that needs to buy Eco fabrics and produce your Eco garments in Vietnam then this book will open doors for you. Chris refers you to sellers of Eco fabrics in Vietnam and showcase sewing factories that market themselves as Eco and walk the talk.

The first challenge was to define Eco fabrics. He started by figuring out what Eco fabrics are not. This book is intended to be a quick and easy read about Eco fabrics and not an academic deep dive into the subject. His focus on introducing you to people around the world and in Vietnam who value Eco friendly textile manufacturing. If you need mind numbing details, he also recommends some amazing blogs and books.

What kind of clothing can you produce in Vietnam?

China vs Vietnam

"I thought Vietnam was the next rising star! Minimum wage in Vietnam is $US 170/month. China’s minimum wage is $US 325 / month. How come the Vietnam price is 1.5x greater than my China price?”

This is the question our clients ask us about clothing manufacturers in Vietnam a lot. Our clients get their first costing from Vietnamese factories and they are surprised. There are three reasons: supply and demand, production experience and fabric cost.

New manufacturers are set up monthly. The supply and demand imbalance means that Vietnamese factories are not motivated to offer high quality at low prices. Why should they go the extra mile to offer a price cheaper than China when they have enough customers willing to pay their price?

The second reason your initial Vietnam price will be higher than your China price is that Vietnamese clothing factories are not as experienced as Chinese factories. They are not as experienced in the production processes or costing. Many factories in Vietnam started off as state owned enterprises and operate very conservatively. The motivation, discipline and training to maximize efficiency is not part of the legacy communist management systems. The same is true for China but the Chinese are 30 years ahead of Vietnam in their evolution away from communists’ management style.

The final reason that the initial Vietnam price you get will be higher than your China price is the higher cost of fabric. 70% of the garments produced in Vietnam are using fabric produced in China, Taiwan and Korea. When Chinese buy fabric from Chinese partners, they get the fabric super cheap compared to the price Vietnam can buy. The price difference gets even bigger when a clothing manufacturer in Vietnam buys small quantities through wholesalers. Then there is the added transportation cost to get the fabric from China to Vietnam. If imported fabric is not re-exported as a sewn garment within 280 days then 10% duty must be paid to the Vietnamese government. Finally, there is the hidden cost of handling defective fabric. If fabric from China is received and 20% defective, who pays for the cost of getting replacement fabric? Fabric sourcing is Vietnam’s Achilles’ heel.

We give our clients the following advice. If you have a supplier in China that is delivering then focus your energy on building that relationship and innovating together with them before investing time and money searching in a new country like Vietnam. It’s not realistic to just fly down to Vietnam, meet some new factories and place orders. Vietnam has its language and cultural barriers that take time to adjust to as it takes time to adjust to in any foreign country.

All things being said, there are opportunities in Vietnam and clothing manufacturers in Vietnam are improving every day. If you are dead set on sourcing production in Vietnam then we can introduce you to many factories and you can work with them directly to begin the courtship, start the discovery journey. One thing you can count on is good food, nice weather, friendly people and easy transportation.


Minimum Wage in Vietnam

Minimum wage for Vietnamese workers
The minimum salaries have been promised to increase nearly $7-9 per month according to the proposed document by Vietnam’s National Wage Council. In 2018, the increase was 6.5 percent, while in 2017 minimum wage was hiked by 7.3 percent.

Initially, the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor (VGCL) proposed an increase of 6.1%, while the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce & Industry countered with 5.1%. After discussions with the National Wage Council, the key body that is pushing the increase of minimum salaries, all parties agreed on 5.3 percent. The proposal will be submitted to the government. The proposal is set to be signed off by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in November and will be implemented in January. All four minimum wage regions in Vietnam will have their minimum wage levels increased.

Depending on the area, the minimum salaries will increase:

Region 1: from $171 to $180
Region 2: from $152 to $159
Region 3: from $133 to $140
Region 4: from $118 to $125

The range is VND 4.6 - 6.5 million per month. The lower end is in the country side and the upper end is in big cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Are you working with clothing manufacturers in Vietnam? If yes, how does this minimum wage increase in Vietnam affect you?

We would argue that your business won't be affected by the "increase". Why? Because most clothing manufacturers in Vietnam are not paying their workers the minimum wage. The experienced and skillful workers are paid much higher. There are so many new sewing factories opening every month in Vietnam that the workers have options and they will chase a higher wage. So factories will have their own strategy to keep the quality workers. If you are manufacturing in Vietnam then you should keep notice about we call the "market wage" not the minimum wage.

The market wage is between $200 to $300 for an entry level manufacturing job. Experienced workers are commanding monthly wages from $300 to $800 per month. These are the numbers you should use in your business planning. Need more help then contact us, sourcing experts in Vietnam.


First thing to prepare when sourcing in Vietnam is Tech Packs

What is a tech pack?

When people come to ask us about introducing them to apparel factories in Vietnam, we often ask them "Do you have tech packs?" A tech pack can go by many different names, such as technical specification, specification pack, spec pack, BOM (bill of materials) or GWS (garment work sheet). Tech packs are also known as spec sheets or technical documents. Essentially it is a document referred to by you or your garment technician and the factory or person making your patterns and manufacturing the clothes.

Why do you need a tech pack or spec sheet?

• It communicates all the details of your design.
• It clarifies what is included in the price.
• It protects both sides from misunderstandings.
Techincal design for your products
A tech pack is the starting point for getting your garment manufactured. Most of Vietnamese textiles generally don’t develop their own ODM products. In other words, they don’t have a glossy catalog with nice looking designs for you to choose from.

They expect you to create patterns, size table and material specification.

You can also send a reference sample. But, treat a reference sample as a compliment the your Techpack, not a replacement for it. Techpacks provides all of the key information that will determine things like the cost of the garment, what fabrics and components will need to be sourced and how long it will take to make. This is beneficial because the factories will often quote a better price when competing against others and also because it means that several people are out looking for the fabrics and trims you require, so you have a better chance of getting exactly what you want at the best price.

Moreover, clothing factories in Vietnam like to work with customers who know exactly what they want and can communicate it clearly one time so that the factory’s team can get it right the first time. They don't have to guess, make a sample, find out that their guess was wrong and then make another sample which can cause losing time and money. A well done tech pack shows us that the customer knows what they want and gives us confidence that there will not be any significant changes. Changes mean more time and more money; aka loss.

When a new customer comes to us and does not know what a tech pack is then we know their garment professional level. We know that we will have to teach, train and make many counter samples which will cost us time and money that the customer doesn’t want to pay for. This is why we always ask, “do you know what a garment tech pack or spec sheet is?”

If you don’t know and want to learn then please check out this resource: apparel tech pack basics or google “tech pack design services” and you will find many helpful web pages.
