COVID-19 impact on textiles manufacturing

How have China’s textiles manufacturers been impacted by COVID-19?

Overall, the COVID-19 disruption has been fairly limited in Mainland China. Factories resumed operations as early as March 2020 and have continued to operate since then. That said, worker testing and regional restrictions have resulted in delays for a fair number of our customers.

Keep in mind that the textiles industry is highly interconnected. Delays caused by shutdowns in one province (or another country for that matter) can delay fabric and garment accessories deliveries – which has a direct impact on your lead times.

Is China still competitive in clothing manufacturing?

The main competitive edge of the Chinese garment industry is the fact that they have overall remained open. Some buyers were forced to shift orders back to Mainland China after their suppliers in India and Vietnam had to close down as a result of the 2021 outbreaks.

That being said, both Vietnam and India have since resumed operations.

How have the increased shipping costs affected clothing manufacturers?

Shipping costs from Asia to Europe and North America have increased by as much as 10 times. Garments, which are high in volume, are normally shipped by sea – which has resulted in profits being decimated by many brands and importers.

As a result, a significant number of our customers started buying from clothing manufacturers in Europe, Turkey, and Mexico in 2021. While it’s still more expensive to manufacture textiles in, for example, Europe compared to China, the freight rates alone drive the landed unit costs to levels that the two are comparable.

We expect this trend to continue for as long as the shipping costs remain as insanely high as they currently are.

Further, the shipping costs are not only impacting clothing manufacturers in China though. Suppliers in other Asian countries also face the same situation.

Buying wholesale clothing from China

Clothing and textiles manufacturers don’t keep products in stock. Instead, they offer production as an ‘on-demand’ service. Some suppliers don’t even keep fabrics, zippers, and other components in stock – but procure materials as needed, for each new order that comes in.

The only exception is products made for the domestic market. Some Chinese textiles suppliers make their own products for their own domestic markets. The “problem”, for overseas importers at least, is that ‘domestic products’ are not labeled according to US, EU, or Australian textiles labeling requirements. As a result, importing wholesale textiles is not even an option for most importers.

So why are importers still interested in clothing wholesalers?

The reason is that manufacturers have a minimum order quantity (MOQ) requirement, while wholesalers don’t.

How to find a good clothing manufacturer in China

Not all Clothing and textiles manufacturers are equal. Making a random factory selection online, without verifying that the supplier is able to reach your quality requirements, is likely to end up in disaster. Below follows an introduction to the three main factors that really matter, when selecting clothing manufacturers in China.

1. Product scope

All suppliers are specialized in certain product categories s, and sometimes even materials. If you plan to import GOTS certified organic cotton t-shirts, you need to look specifically for suppliers manufacturing GOTS certified organic cotton t-shirts – not just suppliers making ‘cotton t-shirts.

This also applies to print techniques and other technical requirements. If you intend to import DTG printed t-shirts, for example, it’s essential to only shortlist suppliers that already offer DTG printing.

2. Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) Requirement

All suppliers have a MOQ requirement. For example, if the supplier’s MOQ is set at 500 pcs, you must purchase at least 500 pieces – or they cannot accept your order. In the textiles industry, there are 3 different MOQs to keep track of:

  • MOQ per order: Normally 500 – 1000 pcs
  • MOQ per fabric: Normally 250 – 500 pcs
  • MOQ per color: Normally 250 – 500 pcs
  • MOQ per size: Normally 100 – 250 pcs

Notice that the MOQ often reflects the minimum amount of fabric the supplier must purchase from their subcontractors. As such, you can reduce the overall MOQ by using the same fabrics and colors on more than one product.

Further, custom colored fabric (i.e., according to a certain Pantone) tends to have a higher MOQ, compared to the supplier’s standard fabric colors.

3. Lab test reports (chemicals and heavy metals)

Clothing textiles are regulated in most countries, including the United States, Europe, and Australia. Most applicable safety standards, such as REACH (Europe) and California Proposition 65, restrict chemicals, heavy metals, and pollutants.

Examples
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Cadmium
  • AZO dyes
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates

Most Chinese manufacturers, especially the smaller ones, are not aware of the substance contained in their textiles.

It’s a deeply rooted issue that goes way beyond the manufacturer. All clothing manufacturers purchase fabrics and components from subcontractors. The number of material subcontractors can range from two or three to hundreds.

Ensuring that non-compliant materials don’t slip through requires the supplier to test a large number of samples, which most small factories consider too expensive and time-consuming.

For importers based in Europe, America, Canada, and Australia, it’s critical to select a supplier that can demonstrate a compliance track record in terms of test reports, issued by an accredited third party such as SGS or Intertek.

Clothing test reports

For example, you can make a ‘compliance assessment’ based on the following documents:

  • REACH (SVHC) test report
  • OEKO tex standard 100
  • California proposition 65
  • Heavy metals test report
  • Azo dyes test report
  • MSDS
  • Bill of substances

4. Fabric quality

In 2011, we were tasked with managing the product development process of a new polo shirt collection for a European brand. They’d already selected a new supplier in the southern Fujian province to manufacture their new designs.

It was a good supplier. Clean facility, long history, plenty of capital, modern machinery, and a strict quality management system.

The client received the samples and testing begins. A few weeks of usage and washing later, it was clear that the material quality was far below the client’s expectations. While they wanted to match brands like GANT and Ralph Lauren in terms of quality, this sample would go straight to an outlet.

Obviously, the client was upset about this, and we submitted a complaint to the supplier. They made another batch of samples. But the result was the same. This was when we realized that this may be a reliable supplier, yet unable to match our buyer’s quality requirements.

It turned out that they were indeed specialized in making low-cost apparel for discount markets, and good at it too.

Before you get started, you need to get your fabric specifications in order. Never assume that a Chinese clothing and textiles manufacturer is specialized in making items matching your quality requirements.

Source fabrics directly from material suppliers

One strategy that we have applied more often in recent years is to source two sets of suppliers:

  • Supplier A: Apparel manufacturer
  • Supplier B: Material supplier

Relying on the apparel manufacturer when it comes to selecting fabrics and other materials can be very time-consuming.

For example, it can be hard to communicate fabric quality requirements to a supplier, and it can take weeks or even months of emailing back and forth to get the correct fabric samples.

A better option, if you have specific fabric requirements, is to identify a fabric supplier and order samples directly from them.  The fabrics supplier will then ship the materials to the apparel manufacturer in time for production.

5. BSCI and Sedex Audit Reports

BSCI and Sedex are membership organizations for manufacturers, performing regular social compliance audits in factories throughout the world. BSCI, for example, implements a protocol based on these core principles:

  • The rights of freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • Fair remuneration
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Special protection for young workers
  • No bonded labor
  • Ethical business behavior
  • Decent working hours
  • No child labor
  • No precarious employment
  • Protection of the environment

Apparel factories that already are BSCI or Sedex audited tend to be better managed than those that lack such audit reports. There are various reasons for this, but BSCI and Sedex (SMETA) audit reports are among the primary selection criteria we use when sourcing textiles factories in China, Vietnam, India, and other countries.

FAQ

Where are most clothing manufacturers in China located?

Clothing manufacturers are not concentrated in a few clusters but spread out all over the country. That said, large garment manufacturing hubs are located in these provinces:

  • Guangdong
  • Fujian
  • Jiangxi
  • Zhejiang
  • Jiangsu
Can I buy wholesale clothing from a manufacturer?

Most clothing manufacturers only make products on-demand. As such, they don’t keep stock but only start production whenever an order comes in from a foreign or domestic buyer.

How much does it cost to manufacture clothes in China?

The unit cost depends on the material cost, colors, prints, and labor cost (i.e. the time it takes to cut, sew and pack the product). There is no ‘standard’ pricing system in place for textiles. Take a t-shirt for example, which can be manufactured for less than $1 – or cost more than $20 – all depending on the material and other factors.

We often get requests to provide clothing price examples, but such data is meaningless without knowing the actual specification of the product.

How can I get a price from a manufacturer?

You need to prepare a techpack before you can get a price from a manufacturer, you need to prepare a techpack.

Can I buy brand-name clothing from China?

No, you cannot buy authentic brand-name garments directly from Chinese manufacturers. Regardless of whether the brand in question does manufacture products in China, brand-name goods are never ‘available’ for parallel importers.

How to Get Your Clothing Designs Made: 6 Steps

Once you’ve found a few clothing manufacturers, it’s time to see what they go for. In this part, you will learn how to create a techpack, order product samples, and implement a quality assurance strategy.

1. Creating your Techpack

techpack example

Design drawings/sketches

Clothing design drawings demonstrate the final product. It gives your supplier a solid design reference point when making apparel samples.

Sewing patterns

The sewing pattern is a template for a certain part of the garment, such as sleeves and collars. It helps the supplier cut the fabric parts in the right shape, and according to the dimensions set in your size chart.

Bill of Materials (BoM)

The BoM is essentially a list of materials and components used to make a single unit. Further, you must also specify the quantity or amount of materials and components used.

Garment Bill of Materials Example

Care Label, 1 pc100% NylonWhitecare-label.pdf

Size chart

A size chart details garment measurements and dimensions for each size (e.g. S, M, L, and XL). Each measurement is normally visually represented by a letter on the size chart. Notice that there is no universal apparel size system or even mandatory national standards.

That said, you can choose to base your size chart on one of the following ISO size standards:

ISO 3635: 1981, Size designation of clothes – Definitions and body measurement procedure

ISO 3636: 1977, Size designation of clothes – Men’s and boys outerwear garments

ISO 3637: 1977, Size designation of clothes – Women’s and girls outerwear garments

ISO 3638: 1977, Size designation of clothes – Infants garments

Another option is to base your size chart from another brand, such as Asos.com.

Size chart example
MDescriptionToleranceSML
aWaist(+/-) 10 mm730 mm830 mm930 mm
bInseam(+/-) 10 mm810 mm810 mm810 mm
cFront Rise(+/-) 5 mm200 mm210 mm220 mm
dLength(+/-) 5 mm800 mm810 mm820 mm
Seam allowance

While the seam allowance must be clearly defined on the pattern, the size chart should specify the measurements of the final product.

Measurement tolerances

Fabric cutting, sewing, and pre-washing result in natural dimensional tolerances. That said, such differences must be contained within a clearly defined dimensional tolerance (i.e., +/- 5 mm) for each measurement in the size table.

Can I tell my supplier to simply use standard sizes in my country?

No. There are no clearly defined ‘national size tables’. If you allow your supplier to take care of pattern grading and size measurements, you’ll most likely end up with pieces that are either too small or too big.

Logos, prints, and embroidery

Printed logos, fabric prints, and embroideries must also be included in your techpack. In addition, you should also provide all necessary files to your suppliers in .ai (Adobe Illustrator) or .eps format.

Further, the supplier must also be instructed on the type of print, position, and color:

  • Print position
  • Dimensions
  • Color
  • Printing technique
Printing techniques

There are various types of textile printing techniques. Some of the most common follow below:

Screen printing

Screen printing is the most common textile printing type and can be used for both light and dark fabrics.

Digital textile printing (DTG)

An inkjet printer, with textile ink, is printing text or graphics directly on the fabric – based on a file uploaded to the connected computer. As such, you don’t need print tools, that can be relatively expensive – especially when you have many different prints.

Block printing

Metal or wood blocks are cut to a certain pattern and then stamped on the fabric. This is a more traditional method but is still used for certain types of home textile prints, such as curtains.

Heat/thermal transfer printing

Heat transfer printing is a low-cost method that adds a layer to the fabric. This method is often used for printing numbers or text. The print may crack after washing several times.

Material specifications

a. Cotton

Cotton is a plant fiber commonly used in all types of apparel and textiles. Cotton can be combined with synthetic fibers, such as polyester. Cotton fabric is breathable.

b. Polyester

Polyester is a type of plastic, which fibers are also used to make fabrics. Polyester fabrics are generally cheap and durable and used for various types of apparel. Unlike cotton, polyester is not breathable. However, there are cotton and polyester blend fabrics.

c. Wool

Wool is a textile fiber obtained from animals, mostly sheep. Wool is generally more expensive than cotton. There are various types of wool, including cashmere and merino wool. Many suppliers sell ‘generic’ wool as cashmere and merino wool.

d. Bamboo Rayon

Bamboo fabrics are not purely made of bamboo fibers. Instead, bamboo fibers are melted and mixed with chemicals to produce bamboo rayon fabrics. Virtually all so called bamboo fabrics are bamboo rayon fabrics. Many workers are exposed to extremely dangerous chemicals and toxic fumes during the refining process. Carbon disulfide is one such substance, that causes heart attacks, blindness, and even psychosis.

Bamboo fabrics do have some benefits:

  • Limited water usage
  • Biodegradable
  • No soil erosion (rather the opposite)
  • No pesticides

Notice that most countries don’t allow bamboo rayon is described or marketed as organic.

e. Organic Cotton

By definition, organic cotton is grown using methods that leave a smaller environmental footprint on the environment. For example, organic cotton is only defined as such if the following criteria are met:

  • No use of toxins
  • No use of persistent pesticides (POP)
  • No use of chemical fertilizers
  • No use of GMO seeds

In the textile industry, organic cotton is the exception, not the rule. Further, the reduction of POP and chemical fertilizers reduces yields and therefore results in higher prices.

f. Nylon

Nylon is a durable polymer, that can also be used for textiles. Nylon can be blended with fibers or polymers such as cotton, polyester, and spandex.

g. Spandex

Spandex (also known as lycra and elastane) is a synthetic fiber, with high elasticity. Spandex is often blended with cotton, or other fibers, and used in sportswear.

Fabric Standards

a. GOTS

GOTS is the acronym for Global Organic Textile Standard, which is defined as follows:

1. Only fabrics that contain at least about 70% organic fibers can become GOTS certified

2. All chemicals such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria

3. A functional wastewater treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria

A supplier can be GOTS certified if they pass a factory inspection performed by an accredited third party. There are only a handful of ‘GOTS accredited’ inspection companies with offices in China:

  • CERES GmbH
  • Control Union Certifications b.v.
  • Ecocert Greenlife

b. OEKO Tex Standard 100

OEKO Tex Standard 100 is an international and independent testing and certification system for textiles. OEKO Tex Standard 100 ‘certified’ textiles meet various requirements, such as the following:

  • Compliant with REACH (EU)
  • Not containing Azo colorants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel
  • Compliant with US CPSC regulations
Technical Specifications

a. Weight

Fabrics are generally not defined by thickness, but by their weight, in terms of grams per square meter (gsm). Lighter fabrics are thinner, less durable and often cheaper than more heavy fabrics. A few examples follow below:

  • Baby clothing: 120 – 140 gsm
  • T-shirt fabric: 120 – 200 gsm
  • Pique fabric: 200 – 240 gsm
  • Hoodie fabric: 280 – 350 gsm

a. Fiber Composition

Some fabrics are made of a single fiber, such as 100% cotton. However, many fabrics are blended, consisting of two or more different fibers. A few examples follow below:

  • 70% Cotton, 30% Polyester
  • 95% Cotton, 5% Spandex

c. Color system

Fabrics can generally be dyed according to a Pantone color. It’s important that you always specify the correct Pantone code to your supplier. However, notice that ‘custom dyed fabrics’ (according to certain Pantone colors) often result in a higher MOQ, compared to if you buy fabric in one of the supplier’s standard colors.

Garment labels

Garment labels are not optional but are required by law. Importing products without a textile label, or without sufficient information, can be enough reason for the customs authorities to seize and destroy the products. As such, you must create the care label file as part of your tech pack, according to applicable labeling requirements in your country or market.

Notice that each country or market have their own labeling requirements. However, the following is generally required:

  • Fiber composition (e.g, 95% Cotton, 2% Spandex)
  • Care symbols or written care instructions
  • Size
  • Country of Origin

Note that additional labeling requirements may apply to babywear and children’s clothing.

FAQ

How can I protect my clothing designs?

Clothing designs cannot be patented. At best, you can protect your brand name, logo, and graphical artwork. That said, you cannot get a design patent for a generic garment design, even if it differs from what’s already on the market.

How do I protect my brand and logo?

You must register your brand and logo under a trademark in your country, and other target markets. You should also consider registering your trademark in China, as a way prevent ‘trademark squatters‘ to take it before you do.

Why can’t I buy ready-made apparel listed on Alibaba?

Chinese clothing factories rarely have standard designs, or even in-house designers, launching new collections. This is often confusing, as suppliers often list hundreds of ready-made designs on their Alibaba.com pages. What you normally see on Alibaba and other supplier directories can be categorized as follows:

  • Products made for other customers
  • Photos are taken from a random website
  • Concept design

That said, clothing manufacturers rarely have an archive of complete tech packs you can choose from. As such, you must still create a techpack prior to ordering product samples.

Can I send a reference sample instead?

Whenever possible, it’s recommended to provide reference garment samples to your factory. This method can greatly speed up the sampling process and prevent misunderstandings. That said, a physical reference sample alone cannot replace a techpack, as the latter is used in various stages of the process:

  • Request for quotation (RFQ)
  • Production manual
  • Quality inspection
How do I select buttons, zippers, velcro, and other components?

You must include all parts in the bill of materials. Further, you either provide images or a specific brand SKU (e.g. YKK 4EF)

How can I create a techpack if I have no design experience?

Perhaps you have a vision or concept but are not sure how to turn that into a workable pattern file. Rather than asking the factory for help, I recommend that you find a pattern maker on a freelancer website such as Upwork.com.

There are thousands of qualified pattern maker freelancers that can turn that vision into PDF pattern files that the factory can understand.

It’s not very expensive either, as most pattern makers charge less than $150 per pattern design – which generally include the following:

  • Pattern file
  • Logo files
  • Size chart
  • Material specification

2. Garment sample production

Once you have a complete techpack, it’s time to move on to sample production. The purpose of this stage is to both test the supplier and confirm materials – assuming you have not already done so.

In my experience, roughly 50% of the suppliers fail to manufacture satisfying samples. They might lack the precision to get the seams the right way, provide low-quality fabrics or prove that they don’t have much care for detail.

As such, I recommend you order clothing samples from at least two or three suppliers.

Garment sample limitations

The purpose of a garment sample is to test the supplier and confirm materials. That said, there are certain sampling limitations that you must be aware of:

1. The supplier can only use standard fabrics and colors, as you need to buy a certain volume before they can dye the fabric

2. Care labels are normally not included in the sampling process due to MOQ constraints

3. The supplier must also use standard thread colors, resulting in embroidery color deviations

4. Garment samples are always made using standard fabrics

FAQ

How do I select fabrics and other materials?

Visiting a factory and selecting fabrics is the most effective method, as you can compare and feel hundreds of fabric samples. However, if you don’t have the budget or time to visit factories in China, you can also consider these options:

  • Order fabric samples from your supplier
  • Send a reference fabric to your supplier
How much do clothing samples cost?

Product samples naturally cost more than bulk production, on a per-unit basis. Expect to pay somewhere between $50 to $150, depending on the complexity and material cost. Prints and embroideries also impact the clothing sample cost.

How long does the process normally take?

The first sample batch is normally delivered in 2 to 4 weeks. That said, it often takes two or more sample revisions before you can move forward and place an order.

How many samples should I order?

We recommend that your initial sample order only includes one or two sizes per garment SKU. Normally, clothing manufacturers only make one unit per size.

3. Create a Production Manual

Now that you have a set of half-decent product samples in your hand, it’s time to pull the trigger and place your first order. Whenever placing your very first order with a supplier, I strongly recommend you keep the order volumes to a minimum.

However, before you wire the deposit payment, you need to prepare a production manual. This is a document listing all relevant requirements and order terms:

  • Techpack attachment list
  • Compliance requirements
  • Shipping terms
  • Export packaging
  • Payment terms
  • Quality control terms
  • Lab testing terms
  • Brand usage terms

The purpose of a production manual is to standardize the overall ordering process, which is why it covers everything from export packaging to payment terms.

The enforcement mechanism is based on a standard 30/70 payment plan. While you must pay the initial 30% deposit before production starts, the remaining 70% must be withheld until the following criteria are met:

  • Quality inspection passed
  • Fabric lab testing passed

You only maintain your leverage as long as the supplier has not been paid in full.

4. Book a Quality Inspection

Manufacturing is not a science. Quality issues are certain to occur, to a varying degree. While quality issues cannot be completely eliminated, but can be managed and reduced to a degree that it doesn’t affect your profit margins.

There are a number of defects that may occur when manufacturing clothing. Below follows a list of defects I’ve stumbled upon:

  • Poor seams (e.g. not straight, loose threads)
  • Discoloration
  • Skewed embroidery
  • Incorrect dimensions
  • Loose buttons and zippers
  • Dust and dirt

Thus, a Quality Inspection must be performed in the factory, after production but before the balance payment

You cannot return defective units back to your Chinese factory, so you’ve only got one chance to ensure that the products match your techpack.

Creating a garment quality checklist

The quality inspection follows a clearly defined checklist, which can either be based on your own checklist – or a standard clothing and textiles checklist provided by the inspection agency. I strongly recommend that you first draft your own checklist, and request the inspection agency to add their own standardized tests. The checklist should include:

  • Visual inspection
  • Measurements
  • Seams
  • Washing
  • Labels
  • Color comparison
  • Export packaging

Booking a quality inspection online

Quality agencies such as Sofeast.com and Bureau Veritas make booking inspections online very easy. All you need to do is to create an account and provide the following:

  • Tech pack
  • Proforma Invoice
  • Quality checklist
  • Supplier name
  • Supplier contact details (Name, email, and phone)
  • Supplier address

FAQ

Can all quality issues be discovered during an inspection?

Certain quality issues cannot be detected during a single factory inspection. For example, low-quality fabrics may lose fitting, only after a few washes. This is why extensive sample testing, and actual usage, is critical before production begins.

How much should I expect to pay for a garment quality inspection in China?

The standard price is normally USD 300, per inspection. The number of inspections needed depends on the order volume. That said, one is normally sufficient if you order less than 3000 pcs per order.

What should I do if the quality inspection fails?

First, what you should absolutely not do is to pay the remaining 70% balance. Instead, you should give the supplier 1 or 2 weeks to correct the quality issues and book a follow-up inspection.

Which companies can help us with garment quality inspection services?

Here’s a list of companies offering garment quality inspection services in Mainland China:

  • Sofeast limited
  • Bureau Veritas InSpec
  • QIMA
  • Asia Quality Focus
  • SGS

5. Book material lab testing

While existing test reports can be used to assess if a supplier has the capability to manufacture or procure compliant fabrics, ‘old test reports’ cannot be applied to fresh batch of garments. The only way to be sure is by booking third-party compliance testing.

Lab test options

You can either book a lab test to verify compliance with a certain regulation, or a standard. You can also book testing to only check whether the product contains specific substances, such as lead or formaldehyde.

  • REACH
  • OEKO text standard 100
  • California Proposition 65
  • Heavy metals
  • Chemicals

Note that third-party lab testing is mandatory for most non-children’s garments. That said, it’s the only way to verify if the material is compliant, which comes in handy the day a retailer or government agency asks for a test report.

Sample collection

Preferably, the Quality inspector collects batch samples and submits them to the testing company. You should, to the extent possible, not allow the supplier to submit samples.

There is a risk that they will, for their own benefit, submit compliant samples (made specifically to pass lab testing) – while your products are non-compliant.

Furthermore, ensure that they affix the Booking ID / Sample ID on or inside the envelope. Otherwise, the testing company cannot identify the samples.

Lab test report

Once the test is performed, you will receive a test report telling you if the products passed or failed. This test report (PDF) can later be used to prove that your products are compliant with relevant safety standards and chemical regulations, such as REACH and CA Prop 65. Note that the customs authorities, other government agencies or Amazon may require that you provide a test report at some point.

FAQ

How much do textiles lab tests cost?

The testing cost is based on the number of fabrics, colors, and tests. On average, our customers in the textiles industry pay between USD 400 to 800 to test up to 5 different fabrics.

Do I need to test every single order?

Our recommendation is to book lab testing when you place your first order with a supplier, or when you change materials. Ultimately, it comes down to cost of compliance versus risk.

Which companies can help us with garment testing services?

Here’s a list of companies offering textiles testing services in Mainland China:

  • Bureau Veritas
  • QIMA
  • SGS
  • Intertek
  • TUV

6. Shipping garments from China

Once the products have passed both the quality inspection and the lab testing, it’s time to wrap everything up. First, however, you need to wire the remaining balance payment of 70% to the supplier’s bank account.

Balance payment checklist

1. Don’t send the payment until all quality issues are resolved. Once paid in full, the supplier can’t be made to remake defective or damaged items.

2. Make sure you pay the right bank account, as explained at the beginning of this chapter.

3. Send a payment record to the supplier as soon as you’ve wired the funds.

Book shipping

I recommend that you book shipping through a platform such as Flexport.com. That way, you can keep track of the full door-to-door shipping cost and make sure that your cargo is insured. I strongly recommend that you don’t let your supplier take care of the shipping process, even though it may seem like the easiest alternative.

Airfreight or sea freight?

Airfreight is both faster and more cost-effective for smaller shipments. As a rule of thumb, I recommend air freight if the total cargo weight is less than 150 kgs. However, that is rarely the case when it comes to textiles. As such, sea freight or normally the best option when shipping clothing or other textiles from China.

Shipping Insurance

Transportation damages, such as broken cartons or mold-covered items, are common. If your goods arrived damaged, you can only receive compensation if you bought shipping insurance before the goods depart from the country of origin. Shipping insurance is not included by default, so you must specifically instruct your forwarder that the shipment should be insured – from the moment they collect the cargo at the factory, to the final delivery.

The insurance cost is calculated based on the cargo value, normally between $50 to $150. Whatever you do, make sure that you got insurance. That said, shipping insurance doesn’t cover the following:

  • Quality issues caused by the supplier
  • Lost sales caused delays
  • The shipping cost

Incoterms

Incoterms specify how and when the cargo is transferred from the seller to the buyer. I recommend that you buy according to FOB terms while booking a DAP shipment directly from the forwarder. Do not buy according to EXW terms, and do not book shipping according to CIF terms.

Export packaging

Many manufacturers use cheap and substandard export packaging, which often results in severe cargo damage during transportation. Hence, you must provide explicit instructions for how the cargo should be packed.

  • Inner cartons: 3 layers or 5 layers
  • Outer cartons: 5 layers, wrapped in plastic sheets and strapped to the pallets (if any)
  • ISPM 15 Pallets: May be required (if heavy cargo that cannot be manually unloaded)
  • Styrofoam frame: May be required
  • Plastic cover on all cartons (prevents mold)

Shipping Process

Below follows a summary of the door to door shipping process:

1. The supplier receives the balance payment

2. The products are packed and loaded on pallets

3. The freight forwarder sends a truck to the factory to pick up the cargo

4. The cargo is transported to the port of loading (e.g, Hong Kong). The forwarder should confirm the final cost, based on the actual weight and volume.

5. Pay the shipping cost directly to the forwarder

6. The cargo is loaded on the vessel and shipped to the final destination

7. The cargo arrives at the port of destination and is cleared through customs

8. The forwarder transports the cargo from the port of destination to your address

        Hi Melissa,

        Tmall is not a wholesale or factory directory. I suggest you source suppliers on Alibaba.com or Globalsources.com instead

      Hello,

      I am looking to bring in bulk clothing from taobao but wonder if there is a cheaper alternative or the direct wholesaler? Thanks!

      1. ChinaImportal at 8:24 am

        Hi Yi Yin,

        Yes you can get it cheaper if you buy larger volumes from wholesalers.

        However, what you find on Taobao and wholesalers are goods made for the domestic market in China – hence, they are not compliant (i.e., labels) with overseas product regulations.

        You would therefore need to relabel all items.

    212. Kaylam at 7:17 pm

      You have to know who you are dealing with, most of you who think your dealing with a manufacturer are in fact dealing with a Trading company, who then go to the manufacture to secure your order.
      The garment as per your specific requirement will never be produced, or if it is, its probably going to be inferior, so you have to be careful.

      Hi, I’m presently working with a clothing manufacture in China named [EDIT]. They have been pretty good with sending me samples. I paid for all of my samples and 50% of my production via western union. So now after they have sent me pictures of my finished production, i have decided to send them a bank wire transfer to pay my production balance. They gave me someones personal bank account information and has asked me NOT to put down any business information.

      My bank and I were in agreement not to listen to them and wrote on the transfer what it was for. Now they are asking me to take it off the transfer. They said it takes longer to get the money, then the said, they WONT get the money and then they said it will cost them $500 to receive my wire.

      My bank thinks they are a scam. Now i dont know what to do since i already paid 50% down and the other 50% is already wired. FOR ANYONE READING THIS -DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH [EDIT]. TOO many red flags. Not sure if i will ever get my production but either way I need to find another manufacture for my womens line.

      Not sure why this site is taking out the name of the company. U guys need to know.

        Hi Monique,

        Without any documentation, court decision or other proof – we cannot verify that this is accurate. For legal reasons, we must edit out the company names.

        However, if you have proof of some kind, you can consider reporting the supplier to http://www.supplierblacklist.com

      2. Eric at 11:00 am

        Hi Monique
        sorry to hear that happened.
        I want to let you know that in China many small factories they do not have licencing of import and export, can not take bank transfer in any currency out of CNY. personal account can receive bank transfer in any currency, but can not contain any invoice information, otherwise can not be in account. the bank will reject it. that’s Chinese policy.

        1. ChinaImportal at 3:11 am

          Payments to private bank accounts is still extremely risky for buyers, and shall be avoided at all times.

          Importers would never pay to private accounts in their home countries, and this also apply in China.

          Don’t do in China what you would not do at home.

    308. CC at 1:56 pm

      Hello,

      I have had my own online women’s clothing store based in the UK for 2 years now, ordering from Aliexpress and have always supplied high quality clothing to our customers.
      Time has gone on now and there are now thousands of online/instagram boutiques that sell the same products.
      We are going into the 3rd year of our business and I have been researching and looking into manufacturing our own designs but its become a nightmare trying to find the right factory for us. We have had a Aliexpress store make our own design in the past but it turned into a complete disaster as we did not receive our order on time and lost out on a huge amount of money in sales.

      You blog is amazing and there is so much useful information on one page and would love to know if you can help me?

      1. ChinaImportal at 3:41 am

        Hi there,

        Aliexpress sellers are not suitable for customized products, as they are normally not manufacturers.

        We will contact you by email with more information

      Hi There,

      We are currently struggling with various different factories in China trying to help us with our ladies bikini bottom range. Main issue seems to be trying to get the logo sublimated on to the bottom. We have had various samples and some examples of what we are looking for but cannot find someone who can deliver the quality and speed we are looking for. Is there anyone you can recommend? We are now also looking at sublimation happening in the UK instead but doing it all in one place would be preferable.

      Thanks!

      1. ChinaImportal at 4:21 am

        Hi Shannon,

        What sort of issues did you have?

        Yes, it might be a good choice to have the products printed in the UK instead.

    389. Imran Raja at 6:26 am

      Hi, thank you very much for the information on this website. I am planning to enter the online spots clothing market in a very promising market. Initially, I am planning to have a business model similar to Kim’s i.e. buy ready made clothing from China and then have them rebranded either in China or the local market. The next step would be to have my own designs manufactured. I wanted to ask if you would be able to recommend any companies/areas for sports clothing wholesalers in China?
      Many thanks,
      Imran

      1. ChinaImportal at 11:05 am

        Hi Imran,

        I suggest you check our Buyer’s Guide: Apparel & Textiles.

        It explains in detail how you can find the right Apparel manufacturers, and verify them.

        You can find more information on http://www.chinaimportal.com

    390. Kim at 5:51 am

      Hi, I currently buy ready made clothing from factories in China and printing my designs on them here (New Zealand). I am on the brink if wanting to design my own garments beyond just printing what I can get my hands on. Id also like to design fabric to use on these. I have no experience in fashion design (though I’m more than capable of drawing etc) pattern making and have basic knowledge of fabrics. I would need someone to hold my hand through this process to start with. Or a great chinese consultant. Are you able to point me in the right direction? are there companies that produce low minimums?
      thank you
      Kim

      1. ChinaImportal at 4:11 am

        Hi Kim,

      Is it wise to go to china and locate a factory yourself and transact?

      1. ChinaImportal at 4:46 am

        No. You should find suppliers, and screen them, before you visit them. However, it’s almost always pays off to visit them, but if you do it without checking up on them first, you will waste your time with unqualified suppliers.

    402. lily price at 12:38 pm

      Hi,
      I’m looking for a supplier to create a couple designs for my clothing brand, I’m looking a purchasing 50 pieces of each design to begin with, but i need to purchase them for cheap as my brand caters for medium to low income bracket. Thanks!

      1. ChinaImportal at 4:48 am

        Hi,

        50 pcs per SKU is way below what most supplier can accept. Most requires an MOQ of 300 – 500 pcs per design and fabric.

    403. Nidhi at 5:46 pm

      I have 5 designs to start with and am travelling to Bali to have samples made from a number of manufacturers, I will also have some made in Australia. I would like to also get in contact with a few Chinese manufacturers to test the quality and have some samples made.

      From there I will choose between the 3 locations for my range
      Obviously need small quantities at first, any way you can help me source a few reputable manufacturers so that I don’t get caught in the same disasters as others?

    408. Osen L at 2:55 pm

      Hello Fredrik,

      I hope you’re well.

      I’m planning a trip to China in April to meet with various manufacturers and factories initially (it’s for a new fashion brand but also going to do some stationery like yearly planners), before choosing who would be a good fit and completing the rest of the process from home. I also want to see what I can find in China in terms of readymade wholesale stuff to buy- I am not relying on this, just looking to see.

      However, I’m a bit confused about where in China I should be going to. I was going to go to Beijing but now I see there’s a lot in terms of factories in Guanzhou and Shenzhen. It’s really just a ‘research’ trip. Are you able to provide any insight on where I should be looking to go and if it’s okay to just go to Beijing?

      Thank you so much.

      1. Fredrik Grönkvist at 3:35 am

        Hi Osen,

        Beijing is not the right place for finding apparel manufacturers. Fujian and Guangdong province make a lot more sense.

        1. J.B Danquah at 12:42 pm

          Hi Fredrick,
          Can you please list some of the manufacturing companies available in Fujian and Guandong?

      2. Doug Olson at 9:02 pm

        Hi Osen — I’m wondering if you ever got a line on good apparel manufacturers in the Shenzhen region — I will be going to that region in China in a few weeks and was hoping to meet up in person with some manufacturers at that time (specifically for zipper hoodie sweatshirts). Please let me know if you found out anything in your research that might be helpful, thank you!

        1. Stacy Boreland at 6:31 am

          I Dough, did you ever get a chance to find a good manufacture in China. Looking for so serious help for apparel. Please let me know.

          Info@theborelandline.ca

          Thank you

          1. Fredrik Gronkvist at 11:18 am

            Hi Stacy,

            We just replied you by email!

    409. Ann at 12:18 am

      hi Frederik

      Why arent you answering all these questions on what website to find a good manufacture?
      is it because you dont know or just dont want to share?

      1. Fredrik Grönkvist at 3:25 am

        Hi Ann,

        1. Offering free supplier sourcing, and taking the risk of getting the blame if something goes wrong, for every single comment (a few hundred per month) is not really viable.

        2. Chinaimportal already offer a service for this, but it’s of course not free.

    410. Pk at 1:48 am

      Dear Fredrick,
      It is fruitful post. Do you know where can i buy brand outlet garment directly from manufacturers in China?

      Thanks

    411. Sofia at 3:32 pm

      Hi Fredrick! Is there a way I can contact you directly? I’m studying abroad in HK and are going to shanghai on February and I need mentoring for China sourcing as I happen to have my own clothing brand back in Mexico.

    412. Sharon at 1:09 pm

      Hi Fredrick. Just came upon your sight whilst researching. I am thinking of becoming self employed and starting my own small business in selling women, children and mes fashion, and foot ware. I never knew this side of things that you have mentioned which is extremely useful. Thank you.

    413. Hamid HO at 10:15 am

      Another point. Do not believe the vendor’s Web site. This will make you fall into their trap

    414. Hamid HO at 10:10 am

      I have a clothing factory in China, engaged in the apparel industry as me, I seriously read this article twice, first of all I would like to come to China full of hope those customers say sorry,
      Nothing but a disaster situation in China following order clothing
      1. Due to time constraints rashly signed a contract with the supplier
      2. For quality monitoring is not enough
      3. The subscription price is too low, please do not believe the most perfect quality with the cheapest price.
      4. The sample is heavily dependent on suppliers, oh my God, you do not really believe the samples with final goods is one to the right?
      5. easily believe the words of suppliers, suppliers take you to see the factory, perhaps not his,
      To solve the above problem is to spend more time dealing with suppliers, starting from the fabric quality inspection.
      Give enough profit margin to the supplier.
      For more information on Chinese garment factories you can also contact me.

      1. amanda mcintyre at 11:16 pm

        I am very much interested in your information on China factories. I am looking to outsource for plus size clothing and would love your input on the best factory to use and how to get started.

      I run an Australian start up Business.

      This is a very helpful article.

      A couple of questions for you, Do these Companies work from a Digitised pattern ? What is the most popular format used ?

      I am looking for reliable contacts who can produce 300 items or less of Fitness wear (first run) for me. It must be good quality and durable.

      I have the design and I will produce the sample here.

      Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    429. Jennifer at 4:50 am

      Hello,

      So i’ve been researching for about a year and half. I’ve gotten this far. I’d like to be a wholesaler/distributor.
      Do you know where I could look for junior/women boutique clothing? Like a factory, city or trade show? Or where wholesalers import clothes to LA?

    430. Col at 5:26 am

      Thanks Fredrik,

      Just found your Blog, great advice! I have been printing custom multi function bandana tubes in China for a couple of years. I really like the my contact and they have done a great job so far. However the recent shipment I received the Bandanas were too small and customers complained that they were too tight. When I started measuring the width of the Bandanas I noticed they were all over the road. They said they will be more careful moving forward but I feel like I need outside quality control. Does i make since to hire someone to do spot checking? Are you for hire : ) Please email me at colleenmwagner at gmail.com

      Thanks!

    431. Bikram Chhetri at 8:11 pm

      Hi Frederick. It seems to me that you are like God sent. Kindly provide me your mail id so that I may make some enquiry with you to ensure that I do not have to regret later. I am about to make a manufacturing order however your great article has not just given me a great insight but also left me little worried now. If everything works out well, I might request you to be my advisor from Shanghai providing me the best feedback because my purchase requirements will be big and on a regular basis. So I am eagerly waiting so that we can start communicating asap.
      Regards
      Bikram Kumar Chhetri

    432. Raquel at 5:30 pm

      What a neat article! Splendid. I have plenty of homework now to work on. I’ve been contemplating outsourcing mass production for my clothing line and was wondering about these items that you covered so well and in depth.
      I hope to research more options. ie. China vs other places like Viet Nam, Bangladesh, Thailand…thanks again!

    433. L.S. at 3:03 pm

      This is most informative, Fredrik. I have question though, can’t one find such a company here in the United States that can accommodate very small MOQ? Like 50 to 100? My children clothing line is small but big enough where I need help with manufacturing. Thank you.

    434. charles O Johns at 1:02 pm

      Hi,
      I am planning on setting up my clothing line which I intend to focus more on quality branded Tee-shirts. As a result, I am looking for a reliable contact who can produce different designs of T-shirt at affordable price. I would want up to 1000 pieces for starters. Kindly reply as to how I would go about it. I await your response.
      Thank you.
      Charles

    435. Sandra at 6:00 pm

      Hi Frederik,thanks for the tips.If one has found the right manufacturers do you recommend that we should sign a contract with the manufacturer to avoid things like eg them using your designs for their own gain etc.If you recommend a contract what are some of the info that should be included in the contract ?

    436. Max at 9:27 pm

      We are the jeans manufacturer in China, I think this article can help many people to find a good way to find a good supplier, these comments from Fredrick is neutral. I have to admit there are a lot of crooks in China apparel industry.
      If you do not mind, I can give you some suggestions in this regard.
      If you do not have a very mature process and procurement teams purchase clothing, I suggest that you do not work directly with the factory. Because if you do not know much about Chinese culture, you will waste a lot of time and money in the process.
      This is not a good result for you. You should look for a vendor to give you a more professional service, they will be more professional than the factories, including on product expertise and communication with you.
      And their price will be lower than your plant.
      Because they know how to deal with Chinese people,
      And they have more suppliers than you, it is easier to get the best price.
      Thank you for your trust in China, I hope you can continue to purchase in China.
      While starting point will be difficult,
      But honesty is built up day by day.
      The relationship between the customer and the plant will get better in the process of cooperation.
      One more thing, if you have jeans order, I believe I would be a good production suppliers.
      I will give you the best service and quality.

        Hello Max,

        Thank you for sharing your thoughts. However, I don’t agree that it’s easier to deal with middle men or traders, as compared to the manufacturer. Truth is that most traders offer very little in terms of value added services.

        Hi MAx

        I was reading your post on here and would like to communicate with you.

        We are an Australian company who still produces here in Australia but we would like to move some production offshore.

        We need a good laundry to work in conjunction with us as you well know it is the finishing in the laundry that determines the look and feel of the garment.

        We use predominantly power stretch denims from Turkey but are open to using high quality Chinese denims.

        Are you in a position to help.

        I look forward to your reply.

      Hey, this was very helpful. I’m starting a luxury brand and traveling to China in November and found few manufactures where top luxury brands go to. I just want everything to be great in a short amount of time. If you know any manufactures that are good and trustworthy please let me know. I have at least 3 manufactures for sure and that does MOQ which is great hopefully the quality is top knotch.

        Hi Louise

        I’m making plans to embark on a fashion label of my own, however I’ve not found a trustworthy supplier as yet. Would you be able to advise me on places to find quality & trustworthy suppliers in China?

        Hi WT,

        Hi, how was your trip to China? Seeing that you posted in 2015, I was wondering what manufacturer you ended up picking, and the out come of the quality? Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.

      Hi Fredrick. Just want to say a very good post you have put up! I am looking to start a clothing line business online. I am looking to find a reputable Chinese supplier that can provide long lasting quality garments. I want to take your advice and choose a few different suppliers and pick the best however I have 1 worry. What happens if these suppliers imitate e.g. my product and start selling in China or online??

      Your advice would be much appreciated.

      Thanks Jay

      It’s really hard to find the right contract manufacturers in China since there’s a large amount of good factories whose bosses know nothing about English and such international stuff.
      There’s another problems here, that is the malicious competing with prices.
      My suggestion is to find some companies or that with a factory instead of searching for factories on your own, their offers might be a little bit more expensive, but they’are usually more professional in doing business with foreigners. You have to know, services of old Chinese factories usually sucks! So, always watch out for every details when you are cooperating with a Chinese factory. Anyway, it’s a long journey.
      Here is a company I know doing business about garments, the company name is SUN&RAIN. You can Google “sunrainintl” for its website.
      I hope this may help you.
