FINDING A FACTORY

One of the most common questions we get here at Apparel Entrepreneurship is: How do I find a factory?

Finding the right manufacturer meeting all your criteria about quality, ethics, and communication is a crucial part of having a successful sportswear business. Can they make the products you have designed, on time, at the right price, and in the right way?

Including a factory early on in the process is an advantage. It is not until your specific factory has made a product sample that you can make a correct price calculation. This price calculation is essential for your entire business to make sure you make a profit in the end and can continue your venture. Secondly, you need the factory to make a salesman sample. It is with this sample that you can proceed with your marketing and sales activities. Such as photo shoots, and showing to potential buyers.
