Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
This page aims to answer some essential questions regarding our clothing manufacturing services and business practice we follow at Billoomi Fashion®. We strongly recommend checking it before approaching.
01. I'm from India and want to start (or already running) my garment business. How can you help me?
We're 100% export house (EOU) and deal into overseas manufacturing (export) orders only. If you're a India based business entity where you wish to take the goods in India itself then we're not the right garment factory for you.
02. Send me your catalogue so that I can see your items.
We are not a fashion wholesaler and we do not carry any seasonal collections or stock. We're a "made-to-order" private label clothing manufacturer and produce as per given design and quantity instruction received from our clients. We make fresh pieces and all we send to clients.
We do not maintain any product catalogue and price list as such.
We do not have any stock surplus either. We send all what we manufacture for our client against that specific order.
We do not sell rejections as well. We rather do FREE distribution of stock among the poor or destroy; if any.
Our confidentiality policy does not allow to sell one client's style to another.
03. What is your price list?
Our prices are not fixed. We need to know your design detailing, specification (material name / base fabric at least) and total quantity (whatever small or big) which you want us to produce for you; accordingly we will work out the production prices. In true sense we're custom clothing manufacturer and ONLY produce "made-to-order" garments.
04. I am looking for a wholesaler to buy ready stock for my fashion/clothing boutique, can I see your collection?
We are not a fashion wholesaler and we do not carry any seasonal collections or stock. We're a "made-on-order" private label clothing manufacturer and produce as per given design and quantity instructions received from our clients. We make fresh pieces and entire quantity we ship to clients. Also, our company policy does not allow to sell one client's style to other.
05. Can I visit your factory?
We're always happy to schedule a meeting with you! But we do not attain walk-in / pop-up meetings. Our key persons remain attending existing clients or may be busy in other priorities which are pre-scheduled. Hence we may not entertain you keeping pre-scheduled meetings and work aside.
Essentially we request you to share a brief about your requirement with supporting tech pack or sketches, or a sample image with quantity details so that we can begin the quoting process for you. Once we understand your requirement (whether it is right fit or not) and you understand our cost effectiveness, we can schedule a meeting ensuring that our key persons are available to attain you and we can have a productive meeting at our facility.
06. Can you manufacture "quality" clothes at "cheap price"?
With best of our clothing manufacturing experience, we strongly feel that - no such thing exists in garment industry. Cheap means poor quality material, and unethical and/or bad business practice. Hence for that matter, we can not provide you quality clothing at cheap price!
Yes. We are one of the most competitive. The reason we have strategically located our manufacturing unit in New Delhi is so that you can benefit in the cost saving of at least 50% compared to your domestic companies. With our factory, we can make your production with low minimums. Our comprehensive services are one of a kind in Asia. Most of our competitors are purely just sewing contractors, and you have to have the right product for their facility or else they won't work with you. We go beyond that to support you in each stage of the development process from fabric and trim sourcing, garment testing, lab dip, and other related work that is needed for producing garments.
07. What is your minimums / MOQ?
We do accept as low as 25 pieces per design per color (including mix sizes) unless you want any kind of customization on base fabric e.g. custom printing, embroidery etc. Minimum varies based on style detailing or customization you want on base fabric. For example, if you want us to develop very own custom print for your collection then this minimum will be different (may be 100 pcs) than if you want to use single color fabric.
Hence the best if you get this confirmed once you share your requirement with us.
08. Why do you have minimums for production?
Producing 25 units or 25000 units of a style requires the same set-up time and process therefore it becomes not cost effective for the garment factories like us to produce less than the minimum.
09. What type of garments do you manufacture?
We're equipped to manufacture all kinds of woven and knitted garments for men, women and kids with super specialization in embroidery, fabric printing, yard dye, natural dye, sequins and beaded works, handsmocking, denim washing effects and lot more!

10. I am not located in your country, can I still work with you?
We work with customers whom we have never met in-person. Nowadays technology allows us to keep great communication and provide the same level of service.. no matter where're you located.
11. What is the cost of X type of garment?
Being a “made-to-order” factory, our production prices are not fixed. Rather we work out the price for each of your garment based on style detailing and total quantity. Hence this is premature to give you any random price without understanding your design, specification and total quantity. Only sampling price can be fixed.

14. Can you provide X color of fabric?
Yes! All you need to define your color code. We prefer Pantone and the work will be easier if you can share the right Pantone® shade code so that we can follow the same here for you.
However, please be aware that few colors create problem in dyeing due to small quantity issues. Hence for small quantity it is always not possible to get correct result after dyeing and while attempting to get right color.
Requested to check with us while you share your requirement brief to our representative.
If your quantity is very small - approx 50 pcs per style or even below, we would recommend to pick from ready available color from current fabric stock. Please check with us.
For any reason, Pantone® reference is not convenient to you then please tell us. We can send you another option for color reference such as telephone shade card or similar. This will be a cheaper option but you will have to compromise with limited color / shade variants.
There is another option is that, you send your fabric swatch in desired color. We will check the availability of same fabric same color with our supplier. If we find that, we can send you and take it forward. If not, we can give you similar options in same fabric and in nearby color options.
