Read -> Learn -> Then contact the factory.

I wrote these books during my first few years (@ 2008) working in the Vietnam garment industry. I write about basic knowledge and insider tips that I learned - to share with you.

If you are just starting out and need a jump start then I recommend you read my books before contacting factories.

For example, it is critical to know basic things like what is the difference between woven and knit fabric; what is different about viscose, rayon, tencel, modal and hemp; and what is the Acceptable Quality Level system?

Thai Son S.P History

Sim's parents first started producing cut and sew knitwear when she was in High School. She joined them in 1993 and started developing relations with customers overseas. Decades later they have experience exporting to USA, UK, France, Belgium, Poland, Australia and Russia. Their factory has steadily grown from doing CMT only with 2 sewing lines to doing FOB and LDP with 17 sewing lines. They have faced many production challenges and solved them all when it comes to producing cut and sew knit garments in Vietnam.

They produce men's, women's and children's clothing using circular knitted fabrics. They buy cotton, polyester, viscose, modal and spandex yarn. They import the yarn into Vietnam and then outsource the knitting. They produce a variety of fabrics from basic jersey fabric to complicated jacquard fabric. They then outsource the fabric dyeing to their trusted Oeko-Tex certified partners who will dye to your Pantone color and finish the fabric according to your technical specifications. They check fabric and cut it before sending it to their 17 sewing lines for seaming and embellishment. They also source trims and accessories from Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Indonesia and Korea. They iron and pack under their roof. They have their own in-house quality control and welcome third party inspectors likes SGS, TUV and Intertek. After packing in poly bags and carton boxes, they deliver your finished garments to the Ho Chi Minh city port where your freight forwarder manages shipping.

They are a family owned private clothing manufacturer with two factories and one merchandising office. Their first factory is now rebuilt into their headquarters. The headquarters is located downtown Ho Chi Minh City and contains their merchandising office, pattern and marker team, sample lines, logistics and accounting department. Their 2nd factory is located 30 minutes from Ho Chi Minh City and currently has 6 sewing lines. Their 3rd factory is located 2.5 hours outside of Ho Chi Minh City and currently has 11 sewing lines.

Base Layer Manufacturers in Vietnam

I would like to introduce you to base layer manufacturers in Vietnam. My first experience with base layers was promoting Thai Son S.P sewing factory who bought fifty flat lock machines and spent a whole year training their staff and adjusting their machines to get it right. They made for brands like Voelkl and North Face. Since then I have met many other factories in Vietnam that have flat lock machines and experience producing base layer apparel.

What is base layer?

Base layers are under garments that regulate the temperature of your body to keep you warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. A base layer should fit closely like a 'second skin', and should be made from an appropriate wicking material, which not only allows you to move freely but also transports moisture away from the skin.

How wicking works?

Remember base layers do not prevent you sweating. The wicking process absorbs excess sweat into the fibers of your base layer. The base layer then draws this moisture away from your skin, where it is evaporated. This process ensures you maintain an optimum body temperature and stay cool and dry.

Which fabrics can we make base layers?

Base layers can be made from different materials including wool, synthetic fabric and cotton.

Wool base layers are best for extreme cold temperatures. The common wool fabric is Merino wool, which has a much smoother final finish than a standard sheep's wool. Moreover the fibers are non-abrasive and ideal for people who have sensitive skin. Merino wool is a natural fabric that is comfortable and odor resistant, but is a less effective fabric at wicking sweat.

The most popular choice of base layer fabric is sy nthetic fabric. Synthetics are lightweight and strong. They are a wicking alternative to Merino, but are less efficient at resisting odor. They dry faster than and cost less than merino wool. People also can wear synthetic base layer for sporting in warm or cool temperatures.

Base layers also can be made of cotton but it is not ideal. Although cotton feels comfortable and can fit close to the skin, it is unsuitable as a technical layer as it soaks up moisture and holds on to it. This prevents quick sweat evaporation and makes the wearer cold and uncomfortable.

How can we take care of our base layers?

Clean your base layer after each use. Let it dry naturally.
If possible then hand wash your base layers. Avoid using harsh detergents because they can reduce your protective coating effect.

How can we find a small sewing factory in Vietnam?

We get many emails from garment professionals asking for small quantity production like 100 pieces or 500 pieces per style. This is a problem because most reliable factories in Vietnam are set up for high volume. For example, a typical MOQ in Vietnam is 5,000 pieces per style.

The solutions I would like to suggest are:

Produce locally (example in LA if in USA)
Come to Vietnam and visit small sewing factories in here – high risk
Contact Sylvie at
Contact Rebecca at
Keep in mind that the price will be significantly higher when doing 100 pieces vs 5,000 pieces. For example a quality fashionable blouse using chiffon fabric and single jersey fabric may cost you $20/piece when doing 100 pieces vs $4.5/piece when doing 5,000 pieces. In Thai Son our MOQ is 2,000 pieces per style per color and the main reason is that our knitting and dyeing factories have MOQ they impose on us. In order to get you the best pricing on fabric we need to meet their MOQ or else they charge us an additional fee for doing small quantity.

So, in conclusion: if you are looking for small sewing factories in Vietnam we recommend:
Make locally
