Sourcing is the process of searching for and evaluating textiles, fabrics, and other raw Material that will be used in your garment or apparel product. Sourcing is a critical stage where the team must carefully evaluate the look and feel of your style and the functionality of the garment, while at the same time finding a crossroads between those creative aspects and practical business aspects, such as logistics, finance, and leadtime.
By far, this is the slowest step and the most complicated step in developming or manufacturing any new clothing concepts.
The main Raw Materials to be considered when realizing a new style are:
- Fabrics and Textiles
- Tags (Hang Tags, Care Labels, Brand Tags, etc)
- Accessories (zippers, elastics, buttons, snaps, etc)
- Embellishments (Prints, Embroideries, Patches, etc)
