Zero Defect & Beyond

The standards of perfection are always changing; what is considered to have no defects today could be thought of as defective tomorrow. We are prepared in advance for tomorrow’s benchmark of “zero defect” because we:

  • • Recognize that quality is fundamental in everything we do.

  • • Control quality through controlling process.

  • • Refine our systems and processes ahead of the ever-changing customer needs.

See Our Process

Product

Our capabilities are broad enough to handle different styles across different seasons, making us the strategic partner of choice for brands that want high quality products and sourcing efficiency.

  • • Capable of producing highly constructed garments and working with fluid fabrics

  • • Caters to both the premium and mid-market segments

  • • Flexible sewing lines for producing multiple products

Joy

Our aim is to create joy through everything we do. When our teams work together, each individual brings different skills and knowledge to the creation process. And from these disparate parts emerges a whole that is greater than what any individual could have achieved on his or her own, bringing joy to the team. We also want our clients, vendors and extended community to feel joy when engaging with us.

Interdependence

We truly believe that our success and growth lies with the client’s growth. Hence, we partner with clients by working to fulfill their needs as if they were our own, rather than working only in the capacity of a vendor. We are able to build trusting, long term relationships with clients because of our commitment to honesty and transparency.

Our People

We value every individual and his/her beliefs and advocate the philosophy of “treat people the way you want people to treat you” among our employees. There are many employees who have been with us for over 2 decades. This is a powerful statement, and it indicates how strongly the values of respect and equality are embedded in our organization.


We make a point to foster a culture that enhances each individual’s creativity and allows employees to gain self-satisfaction.

  • • Encourage active listening

  • • Engage people at all levels for open discussion

  • • Push employees to learn and experiment without fear of failure

  • • Recognize and reward those who come up with innovative solutions

Our Community

Acting as responsible corporate and social citizens, giving back to society, and creating value for the community at large are of paramount importance to us. We do this because we believe it is the correct way to live and the right way to run a business.

Feel Our Joy

Change

It is one of our most fundamental beliefs that change is constant. You could say that it is encoded in our DNA, as all of our other philosophies flow from the idea that we should be and always will be changing. And so every day we ask ourselves how we can improve our products, processes, and people, so that these incremental changes help us evolve.
