What are you logo application methods?

Depending on what suits your design and logo design best, we offer –

    • Heat Seal – This is a logo label that transfers with a heat-activated adhesive, which bonds well to the fabric/liner of the garment.
    • Engraving – will allow your logo to be engraved on a metal base, which can be sewn on to your garment as a trim.
    • Printing – on to your garment using screen printing methods.

What are pattern files? Why it is mandatory to upload patterns?

When you go direct to manufacturing, we do not create patterns for your designs since we expect you to have confidence in proceeding with your confirmed styles for bulk manufacturing. You will need to provide the Graded nested patterns of each design so that we can proceed with the manufacturing process. Graded soft patterns of each design should be uploaded in a DXF or MDL format.

What are the basic testing requirements?

All trims and raw materials including fabrics are OEKO-TEX, class two testing standards approved.

(The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used)

OEKO-TEX Tests also cover harmful substances: legally banned and controlled substances, chemicals known to be harmful to the health (but not yet legally controlled), parameters for health protection taken in their entirety, the requirements go far beyond most existing national legislations.
