How Can I Serve You in Vietnam?

The last three weeks have been intense. Orders cancelled, government shutdowns and fear of the unknown. At the same time a lot of excitement during the pandemic for new developments to support the fight against Corona. It’s been an emotional train wreck but our train is still on track. We hope yours is too.

Polyester Face Masks Made in Vietnam



Hi, my name is Sim. I am the vice director at Thai Son S.P Ltd., Co. sewing factory. We have 20 years of experience as a cut and sew knit-wear factory in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Last year we were producing 50 tons of fabric each month using local knitters and dyers in Vietnam. When Corona happened, 50 tons per month went to 0 tons per month. We were scared because the electric and water bills kept coming and we needed to make payroll for our 800 + workers. What do to? Help the world flatten the curve by producing inexpensive but effective polyester face masks with anti-bacterial, water repellent, anti-UV fabric for personal-use.

Polyester Face Masks
Talk about whiplash, we went from making fashion t-shirts and pencil dresses to a face mask mania. We developed, sampled, and costed a whole new product line in two weeks. We quoted ex-work, FOB and DDP to Russia, USA, South Africa and Germany. We became experts in NIOSH, FDA, and CE overnight. We dissected the difference between surgical masks, medical masks and reusable polyester face masks that we are now producing. Our goal was to supply those in need of washable polyester face masks.

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?
We offer 5 styles of washable polyester face masks with 1, 2 or 3 layers of fabric with a mixture of polyester mesh, single jersey fabric and cotton single jersey fabric. They have anti-UV, anti-bacterial and water-repellent functions in four color options.

We then created a simpler 1 layer cotton mask that is anti-bacterial.

Then we stared to get fancy with sublimation prints and heat-press labeling. We learned to make small sublimation prints on one cheek and then all over both cheeks.

Then sizing was an issue. We got inquiries for kids masks. Our pattern and marker team re-worked the size charts and fitted the masks for infants and children.

Finally we developed a cloth mask with a pocket to insert a filter. They are 100% cloth face masks with anti-bacterial function.

We accept small size orders and will ship to your door. We need you to choose the style you want, send us your artwork, tell us the quantity and give us your address.

Hi my name is Chris. I prepare you to work with 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. I can introduce you to them and help you every step of the way including quotation, sampling and production. I work with a team of merchandisers and sourcing assistants. If you need more than just a referral we can offer other support services:

• Design and merchandising
• Quality control
