That level of customization is available at FUSH˚. After all, we are custom hoodie manufacturers. As such, we offer low minimum order quantities (MOQ) of 150 pieces per design/colour in any size.
Custom hodie manufacturers advice
Your choice of ideal fabrics and fabric knit structure will depend on what purpose your hoodies will serve. Exercise-oriented and lounge-oriented pieces will have different demands. Read through and find out what we think is the best choice.
Best hoodie fabrics for exercise
This type of clothing works best when you make it from synthetic materials, namely polyester. It’s not a very sustainable option but the very least you can do is to request from your manufacturers to use/make materials from recycled polyester (rPET).
To achieve easier movement, it’s good to have a 4-way stretch material with some percentage of elastane in the mix. We manufacture fabrics like that at our knitting mill. It’s a heavy (320 gsm*) 92% polyester 8% elastane blend.
*GSM is an abbreviation for gram per square meter and it is an industry-standard for weighing fabrics.
And for those allergic to polyester, dual fabric is the answer. With it, the poly-elastane blend stays but a thin layer of cotton is added in order to be the first one that touches the skin.
To improve the sustainability of your polyester hoodies, you can avoid dyed and/or bleached fabrics entirely. Instead, we can dye-sublimate the material for your hoodies, which is an entirely more sustainable process than bleaching and dyeing. Learn more about it on the sublimation clothing page.
Additionally, companies like PlanetCare can help you and your customers keep microplastics away from our precious waters.
Best casual wear hoodie fabrics
The good thing about casual wear and streetwear is that garment performance isn’t as important as its sustainability and design.
That’s why we strongly advise you to go for 100% organic cotton and nothing else. As for the knit structure, some additional comfort would come with double knit and interlock. Another nice feature of interlock is that it is more resistant to shrinkage after washing.
Other benefits of having FUSH˚ as your custom hoodie manufacturers
We invest heavily in sustainable technologies and modern machinery. This spring/summer, we’ll become 100% energy independent because we’ll switch to solar energy. Also, we use a wastewater treatment plant to ensure the water that leaves our factory is harmless to nature.
We always look to buy the best possible machines. The two we’ll like to highlight here are Orox iCut, the newest automatic fabric cutting machine from this Italian giant and the Spanish Canmartex circular knitting machines that enable us to make a wide palette of fabrics.
Full customization of hoodies
You can get anything from customized patterns, wide variety of stitches to an extensive choice of printing and embroidering options:
- Screen printing (water-based, discharge, high density, silicone emboss)
- Heat transfer (regular and reflective transfer)
- Foil stamping (with or without glitter)
- Digital printing
- 3D (also known as raised or puffed)

Sustainable hoodies made by sustainable manufacturers
We’re both environment-focused and employee-focused when it comes to sustainability. This means that:
- Your hoodies will be made from recycled or organic materials using as little water as possible.
- They will be made by people that earn more than the national living wage and that don’t have to work overtime to achieve that salary. Also, whenever they do work overtime, they’re paid premium rates.
- Our both factories are in Serbia so the distribution of your orders will have significantly lower CO2 emissions if you’re from Europe.

Also, from recent experience, many established and growing brands that contacted us, often asked for custom t-shirts in addition to custom hoodies so feel free to follow suit.
Serbia has a free-trade agreement with the EU and UK
This essentially means that importing goods from Serbia will cost you as much as importing them from the EU. The only fee you would pay is the fixed customs clearance fee, which’s always around 100€, regardless of the volume of your order.
And if you’re from the UK, you’ll be happy to learn that the situation will be the same as in the EU. Just as soon as the new trade agreement between the UK and Serbia is officially announced.
With all this info behind you, there’s nothing left to do but to send us an enquiry about our potential cooperation.
