If you are ready to get price quotes and samples made then let's schedule a time to talk. I need to know more about your product, time line, quality control standards and business model. I have a series of questions I will ask to get an idea of where you are at and where you want to go.

1. Which products do you want to produce first?
2. Do you have any special factory requirements?
3. Have you produced before? If yes, then in what country?
4. Typically, what quantity per style per color do you order?
5. Does your company have a website?
6. Do you want to work with an agent or directly with the factory?
7. What are your payment terms?
8. What testing and QC do you require?
9. Do you plan to visit Vietnam?

I look forward to speaking with you.

Children Clothing Manufacturer in Vietnam

Kids apparel is made in Vietnam. You will get the best pricing from factories that specialize in kids apparel. I know many factories that make both adult and children clothing but pricing is high. It depends on your quantities too. Manufactures that specialize in children clothing tend to have high MOQs like 5,000 per style two colors. Suppliers that make both kids and adults often have smaller MOQs like 1,000 two color ways.

Are you sourcing a children clothing manufacturer in Vietnam? Do you need the factory to be WRAP certified? Do you need a metal detector? Does the fabric need to be Oeko Tex certified?

Whatever the case, I can help you connect with a children clothing manufacturer in Vietnam. Let's schedule a Skype chat and get you moving ahead.

The key to getting a good price for children clothing production in Vietnam is tapping into the minimum wage in Vietnam which stands at VND2.76-3.98 million ($121-175) per month. The lower minimum wage is payable at factories outside the cities. I can introduce you to children clothing manufacturers outside the metropolitan areas.

One thing to keep in mind about min wage is that most factories are not paying minimum wage. They are paying much higher. They have to, to keep experienced workers. There are so many new children clothing factories opening every year in Vietnam that the workers have options and they will chase a higher wage. If you are manufacturing in Vietnam then you should keep your eye on what I call the "market wage" not the minimum wage.

The market wage is between $200 to $300 for an entry level manufacturing job. Experienced workers are commanding monthly wages from $300 to $800 per month. These are the numbers you should use in your business planning.

When people hear about the minimum wage increase in Vietnam the first question they ask is, "why is my China price cheaper than the price I am quoted in Vietnam when China market wage is double that of Vietnam?" There are two reasons. First, Vietnamese factories always give out high initial quotations because they can. Second, Vietnamese factories must buy the majority of raw materials from China which gives China a competitive advantage. The key to taking advantage of the minimum wage increase in Vietnam is to demonstrate loyalty to a Vietnamese factory and work closely with them to get the price down to where is should be given the lower Vietnamese labor cost.

Fact is that there are good children clothing manufacturers in Vietnam and China. You have to meet as many as you can and find the one that fits best for you. China minimum wage is around $300 per month. The working wage is much higher along the coast. The Chinese still have the advantage of cheap fabric which offsets their high wage.
