CMT INFO PAGE - (cut make and trim factories & studios)
Fabric (including linings, interfacing, trims etc) is cut and collated into size, style, colour and quantity as specified on Docket (ie. ordered).
The requested sewing techniques are employed to construct and manufacture garments as specified on Docket and Specification sheet
Finished clothing garments or are trimmed (ie. trim threads and put right any defects), undergo a final quality check and pack items ready for shipping.
IMPORTANT - Things to bear in mind.....
...... it takes the same amount of time to produce 1 unit in an order of 2 units as it does to produce 1 unit in an order of 400 units!!!!......

TIME ALWAYS = MONEY!
