What is CMT?
Cut Make & Trim or CMT is the most common form of small scale manufacturing in the UK. It means you supply us with everything we need to make your garments, and we make them for you.
There are lots of pro’s to CMT production here in the UK:
- You have 100% control of the materials that go into your products.
- You can be very involved in the process.
- Communication is easier and quicker.
- The manufacturing price is higher, but delivery costs are much lower, lead times shorter and there aren’t any import duties.
Of course there are some con’s and we are sorry but we cannot make any lingerie, bras or any swimwear that has boning, underwire, lots of straps or padding. We can only make very simple bagged out designs.
Sampling is available to manufacturing clients. Payment for sampling is on an hourly basis.
Included in the CMT price is (if applicable) 8mm rubber for openings, 19mm woven elastic and threads (if the colour is available ex stock - we have most base colours).
Not included is non stock thread colours (unless you order over 500 units of each colour), labels, product packaging and non stock woven elastic.
Payment for manufacturing is 50% when production starts and the balance (including carriage and any additional costs) on completion of work.
Finished orders are dispatched either bulk packed or ready for retail sale.
