The Problem We Are Solving
This traditional apparel manufacturing process is unsustainable and generally flawed and isn’t set up to meet the needs of modern apparel entrepreneurs who want to make smaller quantities of niche sewn products domestically. FABRIC has an affordable and sustainable solution to this problem!

#1 LEARN BEFORE YOU JUMP IN: Start with our Design/Manufacturing Consultation. #2 FLATS: Hire us to draw your technical flat sketches or take our take our Flats Sketching class to learn how to draw them yourself. Already have an existing garment that we can reverse engineer? You can skip the flats. SPECS: We'll need to know the exact measurements for your design. Take our How to Spec a Garment class so you can provide accurate measurements and you can use this skill to check our work once we've made the product. SOURCING: Find your wholesale materials/trims. You can take our Understanding Textiles class to learn more about materials first. Then you can use our free sourcing library to find wholesale vendors who have low minimums. You'll learn about all of this and hundreds of other steps in our consultation.
Why Start With The Consultation
We offer everything you need under one roof and no-minimum manufacturing when hardly anyone else will because we know that’s what all new brand owners need. But the only way we can do that is if the brand owner is willing to become a knowledgeable partner who is open to learning more about their role and responsibilities so they have realistic expectations of the process and obstacles and can provide everything we need in industry language. This consultation will provide you with the answers to all of your questions and even answer questions that you didn't know that you didn't know.
Sustainability is the reason we exist! We're re-shoring manufacturing for transparency. We offer no-minimum manufacturing to help reduce over-production that results from high minimums overseas. We pay our staff fairly because manufacturing takes a lot of experience and skill. We donate our cutting floor scraps to local designers to re-purpose into garments under the label reFABRICate. We support an enclave from The Centers for Habilitation in their efforts to upcycle ASU's old banners into tote bags that are sold in the ASU bookstore. We created AZ Eco Fashion Week to celebrate and support local sustainable fashion brands. We started our own sustainable PPE brand called REUSA that creates reusable isolation gowns that can be washed 100x to replace disposable gowns.
