CMT stands for Cut, Make, Trim. CMT garment manufacturers are perfect for when you have figured out the design, sizes, grading, patterns, fabrics, dyeing, and printing. In this scenario, a clothing manufacturer only does the following – cut, make, and trim.
Ideally, a clothing factory that provides this service should have automatic fabric cutters, experienced sewing and quality-control technicians. Learn more about one of these aspects on the fabric cutting page.
If you’re here to learn about our minimums, the minimum order quantity (MOQ) is 500 pieces per design or colour. Also, keep in mind that we only work with companies that have VAT and EORI numbers.
Learn more about working with us on our what we do page.
If you already understand the topic and want to learn our pricing, send us your tech pack through our contact form. We’ll send you back our pricing and lead times ASAP. If not, let’s see what is provided by the client to the CMT clothing manufacturer:
- Full design specs including seam-to-seam measurements
- Fabrics selection and grading
- Fabrics pattern(s)
- Stitching methods
- Printing methods (if needed)
- Embroidery methods (if needed)
- Packing methods
This method is ideal when you know how to make your clothing brand unique. Generic t-shirts with just your logo will always “play second fiddle” to selling your custom-made t-shirts or custom-made hoodies.
Customised garments can have your signature in every aspect, from the fabric selection, pattern and grading, to cuts and printing/embroidering choices. That’s why it’s always better to work with custom clothing manufacturers.
FUSH˚ as CMT garment manufacturers
FUSH˚ has both skilled workers and modern textile machinery to carry out the duties of a CMT clothing factory.
As CMT clothing manufacturers, we have made custom sports clothing for the most part. That’s because we’ve cooperated with countless marathons that all needed a way to stand out from other races. Ever since our conception in 2005, we made almost any garment you can find in your average clothing store.
We made a lot of custom promo wear, fashion wear, streetwear, and more. And since we‘re still growing and learning, our portfolio and our ability to make different clothes grow as well.
Reach us through the contact form at the bottom of the page, if this information is enough for you to consider us as your CMT manufacturer. The more details you provide, the better price and lead time estimate we‘ll return. Keep in mind that our minimum order quantity (MOQ) is 500 pcs/design in any size. You’ll be even happier to learn that we operate as a sustainable and ethical clothing manufacturer.
Difference between CMT and FPP (full package production)
CMT production depends on the client almost entirely. The manufacturer only does the following: Cutting, Making, and Trimming. With FPP manufacturing, the entire process (including fabric manufacturing) falls onto the manufacturer, even the design. All client has to do is confirm the 1st sample before production.
Difference between CMT and white label clothing
The difference is stark, like Eddard. White label merchandise is generic. The only way to make it yours is to get your design or logo printed or embroidered on the garments. For this to happen, you’d have to outsource printing and embroidering or have these facilities yourself. If this works fine for you, by all means – go for it.
On the other hand, CMT garments have nothing generic about them. They are an outcome of your designers‘ and textile experts’ analysis, hard work, and well-thought-through choices. Nothing is left to chance. That‘s why working with such factories should always bring you a significantly better ROI.
Choosing a CMT clothing manufacturer requires that you and your employees are experts in the textile industry, though. Should you fall under this category,
send us an enquiry, and we‘ll get back to you with our lead time and price estimate ASAP.
We’d love to show you around our factory so we made this virtual tour. You can see our facilities for yourself as soon as now.
When not to work with CMT apparel manufacturers
You don’t work with a CMT clothing manufacturer when:
- You’re doing printing and embroidering on your own
- Your brand’s main selling point is your designs that get screen printed or digitally printed on standard t-shirts, polo shirts, and/or hoodies and you don’t have the facilities of your own to do this
As we have all the staff and machinery to provide all clothing production services, sublimation/screen printing or embroidery can be an additional service.We are one of the few European apparel factory that had the honour to test the Epson SureColor SC-F9400H printer before its release. We still use it and because of this printer, applying fluorescent colours to fabrics as sustainably as possible.
Either way, let us know how many pieces per design you‘d need and we‘ll send you back the pricing and lead times ASAP.
CMT in apparel manufacturing stands for cut, make, and trim.
• Cut means cutting fabric into patterns
• Make means sewing the cut pieces into garments
• Trim means trimming excess thread from the garment as the final step of quality control
There are clothing factories that only do these three processes and there are those that incorporate them into their broader set of services.
A cut-make-trim (CMT) factory is one that covers only three processes: cutting, sewing and quality control. Such a factory is able to offer lower pricing because of the simplicity of the products it offers – plain t-shirts and hoodies without labelling, printing/embroidery, or embellishment cost the least.
