Sourcing

Our wholesale fabric & trim supply network provides reliable quality

What is Sourcing?

Finding the right materials at the development stage is crucial to the successful launch of a product , as any possible performance issues with fabric or trim can be resolved before going into production

Sourcing is part of our Product Launch Toolbox, but if you prefer to supply materials from your own supply chain that’s an option too!

The main advantage of Sewing Incubator material sourcing is that our established relationships with our network of trusted wholesale suppliers often allow us to negotiate for better pricing

How sourcing works

Clients provide samples of every fabric or trim they want Sewing Incubator to source as part of a project
