Local manufacturing or Offshore manufacturing?
This question depends on many variables and there are pros and cons with both solutions. Many of our clients choose local resources for pattern making, sampling, cutting and manufacturing because there is more control of the process and it is far quicker. Offshore can be a very complex and much more time consuming process and we are happy to explore both options when the time is right.

How many samples are required to be production ready?
In most cases there are 2 samples created. The first being the real test in the fabric and getting the fit right. The second sample is for manufacturing purposes and for photo shoots.

As a client do I need to source fabrics and accessories?
Yes. However, KJ Production House offers a fabric and accessories sourcing service for a fee. We do provide contacts if you wish to do it yourself and we naturally guide you along the way.
