PRODUCTION FOLLOW UP

With 10 years presence in Asia and offices based in China and Vietnam, we have significant sourcing and long-term partnerships with audited factories in the region.

During the manufacturing process our Merchandiser’s team is making sure that clients’ requirements and specifications are constantly and fully followed.
Our lead-time is around 6 to 8 weeks after the receipt of fabrics.

We strive to produce garments to the highest quality standard. We therefore manage very closely all our productions and are in constant relation with our partner factories in order to immediately respond to any type of complications.
 
We treasure our long-term partnerships with a network of audited factories located in China and South East Asia: SA 8000, BSCI, SEDEX or WRAP.
 
Our Merchandising and QC teams operate both on site’s supervision and daily contact with factories during the whole production process at all phases of product development progress (proto samples, PPS, shipment samples…)

QUALITY CONTROL

In order to meet our customers’ quality garment expectations we perform in-house quality control audits at every phase of the manufacturing process, from the moment the fabric is received up to the export phase.

In addition we work with a third and independent QC Company to review in line production and be able to quickly address any issues that may arise…. This external QC Company also operates another final QC once production is finished to guarantee final quality and conformity before the shipment process.

Our partner factories are either SA 8000, BSCI, SEDEX, WRAP. Our fabrics, accessories and trims are OEKO-TEX® compliant.
We manage:

• Fabric testing at several levels
• Quality inspection of fabrics and accessories before production
• Several inspections during the production time: pre-line, in-line and final inspection
• Third independent party inspection and official QC report in English by SGT/SGS or AS international nominated inspection parties
