We have a MOQ of 130 pcs per design and request a total order quantity of at least 350 pcs. Lower than this quantity is not feasible due to operational costs and the acceptance at the available infrastructure and network of manufacturers. Honestly this MOQ is highly acceptable when looking at the investment you will have to make in order to start or grow your clothing line.
Sampling is necessary either for the manufacturer or for you as a customer. Samples have the function as a proof of production which means you will receive identical production once the sample is approved. Sampling costs 80 eur per design and will be deducted from your total order value. We will need either a techpack per email or a physical example send per post when sampling production has to be started. Without these we don’t accept any sampling orders. Sampling costs are received as a payment in advance.
A TECHPACK is an outline in excel, pdf or other spreadsheet where we can see the design, needed fabric details, printing or embroidery, accessories and labelling. Measurement tables per design would also be ideal. We strongly advice you to do your HOMEWORK before you start contacting clothing manufacturers.
We source all the needed fabrics for the production of your designs. For low MOQ we can only source ready stock fabrics. If the desired colors or fabrics are not on stock low MOQ is not possible and “made to order” fabrics have to be produced. This means a much higher MOQ.
TCM values strongly ethical manufacturing partnerships. We have selected a broad range of small to medium ethical manufacturers offering healthy working environments, no child labor, human approach and reasonable salaries. We prefer female entrepreneurs offering a good quality price balance and having serious deadline principles.
