- 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-on-order" garments.

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!
07. What is your minimums / MOQ?
We do accept 25 pieces per design (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 than if you want to use single color fabric.
Hence the best if you get this confirmed once you share your requirement with us.

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.
