An Introduction of Clothes Factories in China with Small MOQ

A few blocks near my home lays a clothing industrial park where you can find a vast array of Guangzhou clothes factories with small minimum order quantity, including my uncle’s. After 20 years working for a China clothes factory, he ventured out with his wife and set up a clothes manufacturing plant in Guangzhou.

Different from China wholesale clothes suppliers you might find on international alibaba and trade fairs with super high MOQ of about 500-1000 pieces per design, the MOQ of most China clothes factories in our neighborhood is about 100 pieces per design.

As to smaller MOQ, you might fear that it would be paired with higher price. A rule of thumb, when you order more, sure you will get more discounts. However, it depends on the suppliers, on whom you are working with. When you order smaller quantity, normally the price would be a bit higher than bigger MOQ. However, on the basis that the price is reasonable and fair enough.

Many of the bosses of the clothes factories here in my neighborhood, as far as I know, they are honest, hardworking, traditional Chinese originally from other provinces that are not so developed, setting up their China clothes factories from scratches after working in other China garment factories for many years. Amicable, reliable, they are typical diligent Chinese you would feel very pleasant to work with.

The greatest difference of Guangzhou fashion clothes manufacturers in my neighborhood and those suppliers on international alibaba, trade fair is,
* The price and minimum order quantity of China clothes factories in my neighborhood is for Chinese.
* The price and minimum order quantity of China clothes suppliers in international alibaba and trade fairs is for foreigners.

However, the greatest disadvantage of ordering from Guangzhou cloth factories in my neighborhood is they can’t speak English at all and lack of understanding of international business. And the factory area is located a bit out of town.

The greatest advantage of ordering from Guangzhou clothes factories in my neighborhood is much smaller MOQ and better price, and you can also choose your own fabrics and accessories from Guangzhou Zhongda fabric market for your OEM label.

Pros and cons of ordering from these Chinese clothes factories in Guangzhou.

Pros:
*Small MOQ
*China Factory Price

Cons:
*Lacking of quality control
*Frequent delays in delivery time
*Language barrier

Take my uncle’s factory as example, they can make clothes with small MOQ but in the meanwhile they have several big customers ordering like 200,000 pieces per month for simple clothes like T-shirt. Everyone in the factory likes this kind of orders even with very tiny profit margin as money comes fast and it’s very easy job.  They used to delay the production of other orders requiring more delicate work to arrange the big orders first, typical practice by Chinese suppliers.

They have the expertise and experience to make much higher quality clothes but usually they make lots of careless mistakes coz being impatient and lack of understand.

To solve the problems, my Italian partner and fashion designer Carlo has trained the workers with higher standards and we follow every process closely. If you are looking for quality China clothes manufacturer with understanding of western standards, we’re your ultimate choice.

  3. Hi Sally, I wish to buy stock cloths from China, but I don’t have anyone over there to source for me. Pls can you help me out

  4. Hi Sally, I am planning to start a online fashion boutique for ladies and kids, and making a trip to Guang Zhou – it could be direct purchase or with our own design ideas. May I know how do we work together on this?

  5. We are into designer wear and we need clothing factories who can sew ladies fashion in Guangzhuo base on our designs. We will source fabric from Zhongda & Shaoxing Fabric markets and we provide our own pattern drafts. How can we proceed from here ?

  6. I run a boutique is Port-Harcourt Nigeria.I want to come to China to buy clothing’s this August. Can i get an invitation from your company

  7. Hi Sally,

    I will be in China August 5 to 7, and would like to schedule a meeting at your factory to discuss manufacturing my jumpsuit and dress designs. As of now, I have a pattern and a tech pack. Whats is the best way to set this meeting up and what information or materials do you need for me to bring?

    • Hi Christina, thanks for reaching out. Sorry for delay of reply. Kindly please check your email. Regards, Your BIG Team.

  8. Hi Sally, I will be in Guangzhou next week on Wednesday.
    I want a good manufacturer to my School Uniforms.

    I am bringing sample Primary School Uniform (list and photos have been sent to your email).
    I also want Nursery School Uniform (samples will be brought to you)

  9. I am agree with what you wrote in this article! I’ve ordered 1000 t-shirt from a trader that introduced himself as factory owner. We went to visit the factory, negotiated price and I place the order. I felt safe to place the order with him, but when I received the first batch of my order, I found out that the tees were NOT MADE WITH THE SAME FABRIC I ORDERED AND THE PRINT WAS COMPLETELY OFFSET. Then, I tried many times to contact the guy and nobody was answering to the phone. Fortunately I have a friend in Hangzhou and he helped me out to sort out the problem. I discovered that the trader was not the real owner of the factory and the real owner couldn’t produce the t-shirts with the same fabric I’ve chosen because, was expensive! This was the owner told the my friend! BE AWARE WHEN YOU DEAL WITH CHINESE FACTORIES AND TRADERS. Most of them can do anything to take your order and then delivery what they like, at the cheapest price possible and this can mess your business a lot!!! They just care your money and not quality and service. Also, don’t believe to prices that are very cheap, they hide some bad surprises at the end. I hope my experience can help everybody new to have business with China, to be very very careful when you are going to choose e Chinese partner.

  10. Dear Sally,
