COVID-19 Notice: The Asia Import Platform is designed to ensure that you can manage the importing process from anywhere – at a time when it’s impossible to visit suppliers and attend trade shows in Asia.
Looking for a new manufacturing base for your latest clothing designs? While Malaysia is often overlooked as a manufacturing destination for textiles, the Southeast Asian country has a long history as a textiles manufacturing hub in the region.
In this guide, we list some of Malaysia’s leading textiles manufacturers, many of which are based in and around Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru.
What do I need to prepare before contacting any of the listed suppliers?
Clothing and textiles manufacturers rarely design their own products. Instead, they rely on you, the buyer, to provide a complete techpack:
Bill of materials
Care label file
As a small customer, you have to be an ‘easy customer’. Without a techpack, you shouldn’t expect a single reply from any of the suppliers in this list.
Can I expect lower prices compared to Chinese factories?
Malaysia has no advantage in terms of labor costs. Malaysian workers earn on average about as much as one in Mainland China. Further, Malaysia is less self-sufficient when it comes to fabrics, zippers, velcro and other components – which are often actually imported from China or other countries in ASEAN.
As such, you should not expect any price cuts when sourcing clothing manufacturers in Malaysia. That said, the country still has a highly competitive clothing and textiles manufacturing base standing on its own merits.
Another benefit is that English is an official language in Malaysia, making it far easier to communicate with your suppliers.
