Link up with clothing manufacturer based in Los Angeles
Chris is an Indie Source Fan
Hi, my name is Chris and I have made a list of clothing manufacturers in American here on my website. I have been working in the Vietnam garment industry for six years as the marketing manager for a clothing factory. Clothing manufacturers in America play an important role for people who are just getting started in the clothing business. Starting in Vietnam, for example, doesn’t always make sense.

Why do I say this? I get 3 to 7 emails a day from people wanting to produce garments in Vietnam. I always ask three qualifying questions:

1. How many pieces per style per color do you want to produce?

2. Do you have tech packs?

What does Indie Source do?

They have price sheet on their website so you can have an estimate what your project will cost you.

Their production development includes:

-hand cut & sewn samples.

What is their porduction lead time?

Their standard production lead time is 4-6 weeks.

I you they don’t have your fabric in stock and they need to knit or weave from scratch then add 3-6 weeks to production lead time. For fabric dying add another 1 week. Printing add 1-2 weeks.

If Indie Source does not have fabric in stock then a minimum of 4-5 weeks is needed to produce fabrics before any production is started. If this is your first production run they HIGHLY recommend using available in-stock fabrics.

Hi, my name is Chris Walker. This website belongs to me. Above is a profile of clothing manufacturer based in Los Angeles that I would like to introduce to you.

I represent my wife’s sewing factory in Vietnam. The problem I face is that I get many emails from people wanting to produce garments in Vietnam. I quickly realize they are not ready to produce overseas. So, to solve this problem I met this clothing manufacturer based in Los Angeles and I have included their information in my website.
