Starting with yarn and finishing with detailed inspection, we take pride in our step by step process of delivering quality fabrics. All of our fabrics are made in Los Angeles, allowing us to offer fast lead-times for samples, production and development.
We keep sample yardage on hand and can ship out of our warehouse within 48 hours once the order is placed. Beyond sampling, all of our fabrics are made to order. Our minimums vary depending on weight, style and color, however the average is around 1000yards per color. We also offer PFD fabrics for customers who garment dye or cannot meet our piece dye minimums.
Since we do not stock fabrics, we are unable to fill smaller sized orders. This is because our dye machines are only suitable for full dye lots of fabric. Our knitting machines also have minimums for set-up, since each new set-up takes an average of one day. We try to work with new start-ups and smaller brands when possible and we understand not everyone can take on 1000 yards of one fabric, but because we are made to order, we are rarely able to accommodate small orders.
Many of our loyal clients use our development services to make new, custom fabrics. When a designer brings us a swatch, we have our experienced developer break down the content, weight and type of knit. Once we have this information we can estimate price per yard and then move forward with producing a sample roll, which normally takes around 6 weeks to process. We can also customize the fabrics on our line by weight, composition, and color, which many of our customers take advantage of. For custom colors, we use a color standard provided by the customer and send it to a dye house for lab dipping, which takes 1-2 weeks.
