Production / Manufacturing


For the Fashion Hothouse, ‘production’ means more than 20 of a style – anything less than that please see our Custom Orders page.

We have undertaken production jobs for fashion designers, for film companies, for advertising agencies, for retailers, for pubs, for pharmacies and for contract cleaning companies.

However its not exclusively clothing only, we also undertake weekly production runs of simple products like tablewear (runners & table mats) or homewares, (cushion covers & blankets) for example. Once they will run under our machines we are broadly happy to quote for your production requirements, however our clothing focus is predominantly womenswear.

Accurate production quotations are not something that can be necessarily provided off the cuff, however with the necessary details, we can give preliminary quotations for items like pants, skirts, waistcoats, dresses, tops, homewares and workwear.

When a production quotation is provided and agreed upon, 50% of the total invoice value needs to be paid before any work will be scheduled to commence.

The Fashion Hothouse does not usually provide fabrics and trims for production orders unless by special arrangement. We have a selection of swatch books from different fabric suppliers that you can browse through if you have not already identified your preferred choice. A completion date will be agreed on and the final 50% is due on collection/ delivery.

Any delays to your production order caused by insufficient materials/ trims or late delivery of same can be subject to charge, however we generally provide fusing and shoulder pads and elastics. We can order in zips, hook and eyes but expect the client to provide necessary labeling.
