Clothing Manufacturer in Los Angeles
For Emerging and Established Designers
At TEG Los Angeles, we pride ourselves on being an invaluable resource for emerging and high-end designers as a premier clothing manufacturer in Los Angeles. TEG offers in-house Studio Level production on a small scale where no minimums are required, up to 50 pieces per style. We also provide Factory Level production, with low minimums of 50 pieces per style and larger volumes for scalability.
Clients come from all over the U.S. to work with the TEG Los Angeles team and enjoy the unique environment of the vertically integrated sewing factory situated in the Arts District of Los Angeles.
Studio Level Production
10–50 pieces per style
Our in-house Studio Level Production team specializes in small volume (no minimum cut and sew manufacturing) cuts of 10-50 pieces. This lends itself to high-end brands that require special handling or quality, brands seeking rush orders, or brands seeking runs for publicity or up-front inventory for start-up sales. Our in-house clothing manufacturers in Los Angeles also work on sewn art installations and special projects.
All garments are sewn by highly-skilled sample production sewers capable of all garment categories, with special handling. Most of our in-house team have worked together for many years, and all regard their sewing as their craft, taking each project into special consideration. Dedicated sewing modular can be contracted, for ongoing projects, with a team trained specifically for the client’s needs.
All Studio Level Production is contracted with quick turnarounds of 4-8 weeks, with rush deliveries available in as little as 1-4 weeks with a rush fee applied.
All production projects are managed by our Project Managers daily and go through our intensive quality control checks. A top-of-production (TOP) is provided for approval by the customer, with QC checks completed regularly during production, and upon completion, ensuring quality and timing meet our standards.
Factory Level Production
50–500 pieces per style
Partnering with a small number of the best sewing factories in downtown Los Angeles, TEG is able to offer a broad range of production services in most categories, with competitive costing, scalability with varying quantities and expert production management.
TEG Factory Level Production specializes in cuts of 50-100, 100-300, and 300-500 pieces per style (all production cuts of 1-50 are completed in-house). All factories partnered with TEG have gone through extensive vetting and are fully compliant with California labor laws, TEG’s intensive quality standards, and several large retailers’ private certification processes.
All production projects are managed by TEG Project Managers and Production Managers, who work directly with the clients, ensuring TEG´s intensive quality control is in place.

Apparel Production Costing
TEG offers production costing to those clients it developed and those created with outside sources. A small fee will apply to all production costs, with a complete costing report. This fee is credited towards any production contracts placed for those style costs.
The report provides costing at three different volume levels and with all pre-production and related fees. A physical sample and pattern are required for all production costing. The process takes approximately one workweek to complete.
Our patternmaker inspects all patterns from an outside source, and a sample is sewn, at our standard rates, before any production. Any necessary pattern adjustments will be billed at our hourly pattern rate.

Apparel Production Contracts
Production pricing includes a review of each piece by the production floor manager and production manager.
Labor time involved determines the price. It’s presented in per piece prices to the client, with additional fees. Once contracted, the client agrees to all prices before any work starts and do not change unless there is a design change by the client.
Payment terms for pre-production are due in full, and production sewing fees are paid with a 50% deposit and 50% COD upon contractual signing.
A designated production manager oversees all projects, eliminating the need for a personal production manager. The TEG production manager coordinates all production steps with the client and related partners.
They serve as your coordinator, troubleshooting any issues that may arise, and ensuring the meeting of all goals.

Clothing Manufacturing Background
Starting in a shipping container in Laguna Beach as The Evans Group, Jennifer began seeking out the highest-skilled seamstresses, cutters, and pattern makers around to form her team.
This team has solidified a process and camaraderie that has provided nearly 2000 designers with exceptional quality and service. Fast-forward 10 years and many of those same craftsmen still work with Jennifer and new craftsmen whose skills match their colleagues, approaching each new project with the same intensity for quality and craftsmanship as the first.
These teams work in TEG’s Los Angeles and San Francisco locations, providing local designers with not only one of the best clothing manufacturers in Los Angeles but in California.
TEG has worked with many successful clients over the years, establishing itself as a top clothing manufacturer in Los Angeles. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com for more information or with any questions.
I’ve worked in the apparel industry for 12 years. This group is one of the most talented I’ve worked with. They work hard to bring your design vision to life. The patternmaker, Gery, is probably the best I’ve ever worked with. His background in men’s tailoring, as well as design, means that his patternmaking skills are those of a true artist (and there really is an art to achieving beautiful fit in a garment). The sewing team also goes above and beyond to meet our deadlines, and the garments are always sewn perfectly. I would not work with anyone else but TEG at this point.
I have been working with TEG for 4 years. They are experts in all areas of the production process. My collection is very detailed oriented and Gery, the master pattern maker is fantastic to work with. The fabrics I use are the signature of my brand but I must say the first comments are usually focusing on the quality. Jennifer has created a gem of a company.
We have been working with TEG over the past few years and have been really happy with our experience. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the entire team there, specifically, Gery, Shannon, Kakuri, and Sam. They have proven to be invaluable resource for us and have really helped us grow both as a brand and a business. The quality of their work is a given but we have been equally impressed by the fact that they have proven to be true business partners- and that has been invaluable.
