Our Function First methodology prioritizes the practical use of garments. We focus on creating designs that not only look good but also serve their intended purpose effectively. By working with a local US factory like ours, you unlock numerous benefits compared to overseas production.
Operating from the heart of Portland, Oregon, we pride ourselves on being a reliable US manufacturer. With us, you gain the advantage of:
Operating with efficiency, our conveyor laser system maximizes material yield, accommodating varied size ranges and engineered designs. This flexibility allows brands to order quantities based on their specific needs, reducing supply chain waste. Our just-in-time business model not only reduces waste but also ensures that we can quickly adapt to changes in product demand, providing you with the exact quantity of products you need, when you need them.
To streamline production, we have specific requirements, including technical packages, digital garment patterns, artwork files, and reference samples. By delivering fabric and trims two weeks prior to production, we ensure a smooth process. Our well-equipped studio boasts sergers, coverstitch machines, and single needle lockstitch, while utilizing US-made Merrow Activeseam for flatstitching.
