This is literally a 1 stop shop for everything you need as a brand owner, from designing, sampling, manufacturing and etc.. needless to say, they’re simply the best. Quality comes first with Hook & Eye, which is one less thing to stress about when dealing with them and I never had an issue with turnaround time ever. I highly recommend and give 2 thumbs up to H&E."

Q. Have you worked with brands in the USA before?

A. Yes we have, 40% of our client base comes from customers in the USA!

Q. Can you make my designs and tech packs for me?

A. Yes, we can. We offer design sessions which allow you to sit one–to–one with one of our designers via an online session. See our 'Tech Pack and Design Sessions' for more info.

Q. Can I sample without commitment to bulk manufacture?

A. Yes. Each stage is priced separately to give you the freedom to move as and when you like.

Q. What is your minimum order quantity?

A. There is an MOQ of 30 units per design/colour (this can be split into 4 different sizes). To go into bulk manufacture you must have a minimum of 2 designs. This could be one garment in two colour ways or two completely separate garments.

Q. What is the cost of a pattern / sample / bulk manufacture?

A. All pricing is based off the tech pack of each individual garment, so pricing is individual for every service we provide. Costing changes with the complexity of the garment and the number of garments being made. Costing can also be affected by fabric type / weight, graphic applications, and shipping methods.
