We consider that Quality Control to be one of the most essential parts of the manufacturing process. Every design has three layers of checks using bright white lamps & magnifiers, ensuring no minor imperfections like leftover threads or small blemishes have been missed. Once all has been approved, we steam press each article & then add its branded fabric hangtags. Once complete, each piece is individually packed into Bio-degradable bags & readier for FedEx or DHL to pick up.
Due to the travel regulations, many of the brands who work with us organize independent QC to do a final check. Rebecca Jayne from the UK, a qualified fashion designer, has set up a speciality team of checkers that come in & do a final check before dispatch.
We also now have a size S Fit model. She will come into our facility & hold a live video call with you for one hour for a fee of $70. Information on request.
