Recommended Sewing Factories in America

In my book I recommend to PRODUCE LOCALLY FIRST if you are doing small quantity. Below is a list of sewing factories I recommend in America. Contact them directly and ask them to quote price for you.

Are you new to garment manufacturing and thinking of producing in China or Vietnam? If so, the first question I have for you is: how many pieces per style do you want to produce? If the number is less than 2,000 then my advice is: don't waste your time in Vientam or China. Produce in the USA first. The main reasons are that your turn around times will be faster. You will get customer service in English. You won't have to deal with shipping and paying import duties. If you are dead set on producing overseas then check out my book that prepare you to meet Vietnamese sewing factories.
