Full Package includes everything from A-Z. Basically we start with your idea and materials and guide you through every step until a fully packaged, ready to ship product is delivered. Partial Package is any part of this process on a need by basis.
We strictly work in basics and knits-we DO NOT currently manufacture wovens, denim, dress shirts, outerwear, swimwear or heavily constructed garments.
We excel in both men and women's basics-tees, tanks, crop tops, hoodies, pullovers, sweatshirts, joggers, sweats, sweat shorts, long sleeve, raglans, etc.
MOLA will soon offer their already constructed men's and women's styles in pfd, blanks and wholesale available for your private label in addition to the already published RETAIL section.
MOLA prides itself on having the necessary resources, knowledge, network and facilities to take over any stages of development. Through each step and process, we will help guide our clients to ensure that the final product meets their needs and exceeds their expectations.
INTRODUCTORY MEETING: After initial email introductions to determine if we are on the right track, an in person introductory meeting with materials provided by the client (samples, patterns, fabrics, info. Etc.) will be held to determine if we are the right fit and what, if not all, services you need.
PATTERN MAKING: Our highly regarded and well trained pattern makers are excellent at interpreting your thoughts and wants when it comes to our clients garments. We can develop a first pattern from sketches, a tech pack or prototype or we can make changes to existing patterns depending on the digitized patterns provided.
SAMPLING: Samples made from sketches, tech or prototype are made to determine the fit, style lines, and draping of your fabric/trims. To ensure that the sample is to the clients expectations there may be several samples until the desired production sample is achieved. Our team will make fit appointments with our clients as we finish your carefully crafted samples and guide you through this process.
FABRIC AND TRIM SOURCING: Mola has an extensive network of fabric and trim resources to ensure our clients the best possible product. Additionally, our facility carries a wide range of jerseys we like to keep stock of throughout the year. Our selection extends from Pima, Comb, Open End and Slub Cottons with various French Terry and Fleece’s. We work with local mills to ensure we are able to minimize the torquing, bleeding and shrinking while maintaining the pleasant textural hand feel.
MARKING AND GRADING: MOLA grades and creates and all markers in house. After the desired base size fit sample is ready for production, Mola will grade and mark your pattern for production.
As with the development and meetings, all production is processed and completed at our facility in Vernon, Ca. This process includes cutting fabric, sewing garments and finishing (diligently inspect, trim, steam/press, labels, tags, bags and ship) The facility itself was designed and built to optimize the production process without compromising quality.
As a private-label factory, we pride ourselves for our strong work ethic and attentive customer service. Mola's priority is to manufacture garments that not only exceed our customer’s expectations but also stay true to the clients brand.
