Tips for finding a great Wholesale Activewear Supplier
Finding the correct the partner to achieve your wholesale clothing needs is essential! There are several factors which you need to consider when searching for a wholesale activewear supplier:
- Fabrication & Construction Quality
The first and foremost thought that usually crosses consumer minds prior to flashing a bank card is, “is this good quality?”. Quality in activewear usually refers to the hand feel, weight (ensuring it’s squat proof), sheen and colour fastness of the fabrication. It also relates to the seam construction and sturdiness when exercising at full throttle. Ensuring the garment is of highest quality is our outmost important task. We’ve sourced and sampled hundreds of potential fabrications and have selected the best for our wholesale activewear range.
- Design & Fit
Ensuring a great supportive, comfortable, and flattering fit is easier said than done. When designing and sampling activewear its crucial to keep in mind the functionality of the garment, this helps support panel and pocket construction which greatly enhances overall comfort and desire for more frequent use. Our design team here at Always Trendin spend significant time researching and testing design and fit, allowing for great functionality as well as cost effective garment construction. Our wholesale activewear range boasts superior design and fit, and is continuously expanding.
- Embellishment Techniques
Making your activewear unique and true to your brand core values is highly important! When searching for your supplying partner, you need to ensure you’re able to fulfill your branding needs, which could range from embroidery, screen printing, branded jacquard tape, heat transfer labelling, sublimation printing or direct to garment printing. Further, being able to custom batch dye your activewear to specific colourways is highly important, sometimes adding in one or two custom colourways really makes a difference! Here at Always Trendin we’re able to cater to all your wholesale activewear embellishment techniques, there are potential MOQ’s but this is something we’ll work through together!
- Turnaround Times & MOQ’s
Turnaround times refers to the time taken for sampling and production. Certain suppliers take up to 6 months to fulfill production orders, which could be detrimental to restocking and speed to market. These suppliers generally have high Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ’s) starting at ~400 pieces per style – allowing them good time to keep their production lines at max capacity and dumping you with warehouse filled quantities of clothing. This is certainly not what we do here at Always Trendin. We have 10 day turnaround times on sampling and 20 day turnaround times on production orders, with MOQ’s starting as low as 50 pieces per style!
