What are the different types of samples, and how would they benefit me?

Depending on the requirement we fabricate samples to help you see and touch your designs.

  • Virtual sample: It’s a digital image of the garment you wish to make to represent its aesthetics. It includes front, back and side views. You will receive a JPEG of the same.
  • Physical sample / Size set / Fit sample: These sample stages will help you understand the fit of the garment. They will be made with available fabrics and trims.
  • PP sample: This is the pre-production sample, provided only to those who wish to proceed with bulk production. The sample will be made with actual fabrics and trims of your choice.
  • Marketing sample / Salesman sample: This is a sample that resembles your actual garment, which you can use to sell to prospective consumers.

How do sizes vary based on regions?

Invariably people can be segmented into body-types based on the region they are from. Although it is important to keep in mind, body type can also vary according to lifestyle, inherited genes and many other factors. Therefore, we give general measurements that are closest to the body type of each continent or region. Hence sizes of the garment may vary according to the change of measurements related to each region.

How do I request a size set for a style?

You will need to provide us with the base size of your design. Our technical support team will then create a size set for your style. There will be an additional charge for a pattern of each size.


How closely are you able to match requested colors?

On par with the best industry standards, we provide an 80% color match to your choice of color (according to given Pantone number).


What are Pantone color codes?

Pantone is a globally-recognized color standard that is used by design professionals. Each color has a unique numbered code that helps with standardization across fabricators and designers.

When you request a certain color for your collection, we would recommend you to provide the specific Pantone color code. If you don’t have a Pantone color reference book, you can find them freely available online.

How do you assess the exact fit for the fit sample?

We aim to achieve an exact fit in our patterns by sticking to the exact measurements you have provided. In a scenario, where measurements are not provided, we will stick to our standard region-based measurements and create patterns in order to achieve the perfect fit.
