Factory-Level Production
Los Angeles


About

The TEG factory level production specializing in cuts of 50-100, 100-300, and 300-1000 pieces per style.  We are able to offer designers of all sizes high-quality production services that suit their individual needs.

Partnering with the best fair-trade facilities in downtown Los Angeles, TEG is able to offer a broad range of production services in most categories.  All factories partnered with TEG have gone through extensive vetting, and are in full compliance of California labor laws, TEG's intensive quality standards, and several large retailer's private certification process.  All projects are managed daily by our in-house Project Managers, who visit the factories and ensure these standards are upheld on an ongoing basis.

Our partner production services allow very competitive pricing for direct-to-consumer brands and those selling wholesale to retailers.  All production is contracted with quick turnarounds of 3-8 weeks, with rush deliveries available in as little as 1-2 weeks (with a rush fee).  All production projects are managed by TEG Project Managers, who work directly with the client as their production manager, ensuring TEG's intensive quality control is in place.   A top-of-production (TOP) is provided for approval by the customer, with QC checks completed regularly during and upon completion of production, ensuring quality and timing meet the client and TEG's standards.

Background

After 9 years of keeping all production in-house at The Evans Group, with a very hands-on management of her team, Jennifer was finally convinced by a close colleague to explore partnering her client's work with another local factory.   After several years of these conversations, hearing about this factory's impeccable quality and perfect deliveries, Jennifer agreed to meet the owner and test his services.  It was an instant mutual-respect upon meeting, and true to her friend's promise, the quality and timing were impeccable, in alignment with her team's smaller volume skills.  

Now with countless satisfied client's production runs under their belt, the partnership has proven to be an exceptional collaboration, and the model used for TEG's new domestic and international programs.  TEG continues to form similar alliances with carefully vetted and tested factories in other categories, now providing a broad range of services and price points to TEG clients.


Pricing


Costing:

TEG offers production costing to those clients it developed, as well as those developed with outside sources.  A fee of $150 will be applied to all production costing, with a complete production report provided to you.   

The report provides costing at 3 different volume levels, and with all pre-production and related fees.  A physical sample and pattern card is required for all production costing, and approximately 5 working days.

All patterns from an outside source are tested with a sample sewn, for a fee of $200 per sample, prior to any production.  Any necessary pattern adjustments will be billed at our hourly rate of $99.50 per hour.
