What’s Full Package Manufacturing?

Full-package garment manufacturing involves transforming a concept from a mere idea into a product ready for mass production. It entails a holistic approach where a manufacturer is responsible for various stages of production, including pattern making, sample creation, fabric sourcing, dyeing, cutting, sewing, finishing, and decoration.

What sets full-package clothing manufacturing apart is its commitment to transparent pricing. With our vast industry experience and robust infrastructure, we offer a wide range of services to our brand partners. It's essential for brands to be discerning. Some manufacturers might not disclose that information, leading to unexpected additional charges. It's not uncommon to initially believe you're paying price X, only to find the actual cost is 2-3 times higher. Should you encounter such situations, we recommend seeking alternative manufacturing partnerships.

For instance look for red flag answers such as:
  • "We can source your fabric, but it'll cost $X/hr."
  • "We can't provide any information until the sample is ready."
  • "There's a consultation fee to inform you."
With AV, all we need is a sample or an image to give us an idea of the required item type and material, and we'll provide you with a transparent quote. If you need more insights or assistance, don't hesitate to get in touch. We're committed to guiding you through the entire process at no extra cost.

Garment AV Specializes

Not all clothing manufacturers produce all types of garments. If you hear a factory making that claim, then take that as a sign to move on. AV has a specialization in contemporary, athletic wear, loungewear and casual wear. We do not do couture, installation or corporate suits. To give better clarity, let's list out brands in these categories.

Contemporary brands: Reformation, Revolve…
Streetwear: F.O.G, Reece Cooper…
Loungewear brands: Aviator Nation, Sundry, Lunya…
Athletic wear brands: Vuori, Alo Yoga…

Why choose AV?

We are an upscale custom manufacturer that believes in adding unmatched excellence so our brand partners can thrive. There are many reasons to wanting to work with us, including:

Experience: We’re a co-founding team with over 50 years of combined expertise in apparel design, garment manufacturing and textile engineering. We bring a wealth of knowledge to the table. Our experience is the key to transforming newcomers into success stories.

Consultation for Startups: The apparel sector is fiercely competitive. To not only survive but thrive, a holistic understanding of the industry is essential. Whereas many factories charge by the hour for consultation, we select our brand partners discerningly and offer comprehensive guidance in various domains at no cost.

Honesty: Integrity and transparency are at the heart of our operations. At AV, we believe in forthright communication and pricing. Should a manufacturer be reluctant to provide complete pricing upfront, it's a red flag worth noting.

Fair Dealings: Hidden fees can sour any business relationship. At AV, we champion fairness in all our transactions. Our unwavering commitment is to ensure our customers always have the upper hand.

Clothing manufacturing cost

To accurately determine the cost of garment manufacturing, we require three key details: the Style Type, Fabric Choice, and Quantity. Think of it in terms of automobiles; the make, detailing, and model are pivotal in setting the price. In a similar vein, for apparel manufacturing, these foundational details enable us to provide a precise cost estimate. Once you've consolidated your ideas onto a vision board, share your concept with us. We'll then provide you with a comprehensive quote. If you have a specific price point in mind for garment production, share that too, and we'll outline a strategy to help you meet those financial targets. However, it's important to note that our expertise lies in crafting products that match the quality standards of contemporary brands. If you're aiming for price points akin to those of lower price points retail chains like Macy's then we may not be the best fit for your brand's needs.
