About the page that describes the cost of making clothes

2. Publish information on patterns, creation and grading costs for each item and level of difficulty.

3.In addition, we will publish the estimated costs and unit prices for making clothes.

Background to disclosing the costs involved in making clothes (voices from customers)

1.Increase in the number of individuals who want to launch their own apparel brand.

Not only those who are well-known on SNS, but also the general public (hairdressers, restaurants, sports instructors, high school students, artists, office workers, etc.) can make original clothes and sell them through D2C (online only). (we receive around 10 inquiries every month).

2. Even if you request a quote from a garment factory, they will not provide you with an estimate, and even if they do provide you with an estimate, there are not many items in the estimate and it is unclear, making you feel uneasy.

3. There is little information on the internet about the cost (unit price) of making clothes, so it is difficult to find it.

While talking with people who contact us (AGLUCA), we receive many such stories, and we feel that if we can dispel the uncertainty in the apparel industry by disclosing information that shows the costs involved in making clothes, we can understand the thoughts and costs involved. Reference information has been released.

About the disclosed cost of making clothes

The cost will vary depending on the type and thickness of the fabric used, and the difficulty of sewing depending on the design of the garment. The unit price is calculated based on the hourly rate of the seamstress or pattern maker and the time required for production.

The size of the sewing factory (number of people), the country of production, and the fabrics and items that each factory specializes in vary, so the time it takes to make clothes for the same item will vary. Therefore, the amount will also change.

Therefore, please consider the cost information introduced by AGLUCA as reference information only.
