What do you cover during Virtual Samples or Fittings?

Virtual fittings offer the opportunity to view a clear 3D view of the garment. This image includes front, back, and side views of the product. Virtual sample sessions are solely introduced in order to understand the aesthetic aspects of the garment including its appearance and visually presentable details.

It is also a sustainable approach to doing things by cutting down on waste as much as possible. We recommend you to perfect your design at this stage with our technical experts before going into fit samples.


What quality requirements do you adhere to when sourcing?

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.


What is MOQ?

MOQ or Minimum Order Quantity is the minimum orders per style you have to purchase when making a bulk order. Our MOQ is as follows:

  • Swimwear: 100 pieces per style with a minimum of 25 pieces per color within that. No restriction on the sizing breakdown.
  • Activewear: 300 pieces per style per color. No restriction on the sizing breakdown.

If you place a higher order quantity, you will receive a higher discount and a lower FOB. MOQ is important as each supplier of fabrics, trims, prints, etc. has their own MOQ.


What are Pattern files? Why it is mandatory to upload Patterns?

Patterns are blueprints of your style. For each component of your style, there is a pattern. This is used as a template to trace the specific section of a garment into the fabric, before being cut and assembled. Patterns are usually made of paper,cardboard or paperboard.

When you go direct to manufacturing, we do not create patterns for your designs. 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.


How will MOQ affect my pricing?

The higher the order quantity, the lower the cost of manufacture. This lower cost will lead to a lower FOB (the final price excluding any costs incurred after leaving the port of the manufacturer).

With Runway Kit, we aim to provide access to high quality manufacturing expertise with low MOQ for small-medium brands, compared to other leading manufacturers. Our minimums are arrived at having applied our resources to gain the maximum efficiency in our factories. Therefore, when placing bulk orders, you need to at least meet our minimum requirement.

There is no upper limit and as mentioned above, the higher the quantity, the more your per piece price will come down.

How do you calculate the price for bulk orders?

We quote a price by considering our overall manufacturing cost, including raw material cost and labor involved in the manufacturing process, and other necessities.

Can you provide an up front price quote for manufacturing?

For the Ready Styles package, we provide an up front estimated FOB per piece. This is an estimated price based on the Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) we provide for that category. The final FOB will vary according to the bulk order quantity placed by you.

For example – in Ready Styles, if it is estimated that the final per piece price for a swim top is $5. This means a piece is tagged at $5 given that you order 100 pieces, which is our minimum for Swimwear. If you order more pieces than that, the per piece price will come down further.

For Custom Styles and Manufacturing packages, we will provide the FOB upon completion of the fit sample. In these instances, we unable give you an up front price because they are not designs we have worked on before.


Why should I provide a Target Delivery Date for bulk orders? And why is it important for Runway Kit?

We plan our manufacturing and resources allocation months ahead, depending on our customer orders. Therefore, the target delivery date is important for Runway Kit in order to allocate production capacity, accordingly, to meet your requirements.

I have images of what I want to get manufactured. Is that enough?

Yes, but you will need to provide clear images of each design you want to manufacture with us. Your design images and sketches will need to contain clear details and relative measurement points. All images and sketches are required to be uploaded in a JPEG or PDF format.

If you are someone starting off, we always recommend you to go with our Ready Styles package first. Here you can pick styles from our extensive library and customize colors and fabrics and add any prints or logos. This way you are able to build your own customized collection to go to market fast and test the waters.


Can I speed up my order processing and manufacturing lead time?

No, this is not possible. We provide lead times as we plan our capacity and allocate resources and are already working with existing orders. We will assess the urgency of your request and may suggest a different payment method so that we can arrange resources accordingly in order to execute your samples and bulk order on priority. For further details, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
