Sampling (sample development) is when we develop your design ideas into a product: the shape, fit, construction, stitching method – all the details that come together into a finished sample for your inspection. All samples are made in-house with a quick turnaround and a 1000+ monthly sample capacity.
We offer two ways to order samples, either via our online shop, or using traditional manual ordering methods. You can choose from our extensive ready design range, develop your own custom designs or a combination of both.
If you are interested in our ready designs you may choose to skip sampling altogether and directly place a bulk order saving you time and money.

What to choose?
It’s really up to you. But if this is your first business and you have little or no experience in fashion then we do recommend you to focus on Ready Design either partially or fully. You can still customize them a lot and the range is wide. This leaves more time, budget and energy to focus on the establishment, marketing and development of your brand rather than design think. You can still customize them .
If you are on a slim start-up budget – go with our shop. There are no development costs and combined with free shipping, it can really add up to some major savings. The shop also has a low MOQ of 100 for bulk orders.
However, if you have any dream designs that you want to turn into a real product, this is where we can take your line further with your own custom design and turn that imagination into a successful business
Labels, Packaging & Accessories
During sample development you better also finalize all your label needs such as heat transfer label, hang tags, hygiene liners, gift bags and so on. This can be done alongside your products, to save time later for bulk production.
When you order samples and if you are interested in custom prints, you should also get them developed at this stage. For any prints we send you digital mockups for scale approval and then we make a trial-print on a 30x30cm swatch to send you, so that you can approve the colors of the print.
Please refer to our size charts here. Make sure our sizes align with your target market or adjust your size orders to fit. We can easily change the size label to match, example if you find our sizes to be too small for your market.
Your samples are shipped with DHL Express, and will usually arrive within 4-7 working days.
