Private Label

It is a dream for many of our buyers: to one day launch their own fashion label. KKAMI is here to make that dream come true and you will be surprised to learn it will be much easier than you might imagine.

On this page we will explain how our OEM/ODM service works.

Background

We have the whole ecosystem here in Korea to make your own label:

  • Seoul has one of the biggest fabric markets in the world. And compared to other Asian fabric markets we have a lot wider variety and better quality of fabrics available.
  • All related businesses like printing, special dying, pattern makers, grading, packing, designing etc are all clustered nearby.
  • So many choices of factories and of course we are working only with the proven ones. Some of them also manufacture some of the big brands listed on our website.

In short

You may expect the same level of amazing customer service and support from KKAMI as with your regular order. But these are some key differences in the order process.

Here are the key points of our service:

  • Minimum order: the minimum order will vary depending the complexity of design, fabric type and the number of size groups. For 4 different sizes it will be at least 30 pieces per size per style. That minimum order goes down a bit for reordering the same design later.
  • Lead time: the manufacturing itself can take about 1 month, but the process before that can start will take a couple of months. So be sure to plan ahead when you want to get started.
  • Pricing: the minimum order is quite low compared to what most factories require and designs are customized only to your store, so it is not necessarily cheaper than purchasing products from our KKAMI site. Only when you manufacture on the same scale as the brands on our site (they make hundreds of pieces per size) will you be able to end up with a lower product cost.
  • Exclusive: the products we make for your brand are yours only! We won't offer the same product to anyone else.

Process

Then how do things work??

  1. Design ideas: you send us product samples or photos of designs that you'd like to make. It doesn't have to be a finished design yet. Cost: If you have design samples available then we would like to receive them. We can send you a UPS or Fedex shipping label for the shipment, but you will be asked to pay the shipping cost. Of course you may also arrange your own shipping if you have cheaper options available.
  2. Fabric selection: we send you over fabric swatches that fit your design ideas or closely match your design samples. We will offer several options and you pick the one that you like best. Cost: We need to spend quite a lot of time and effort to find the right fabrics but we will gladly put in that time and pay for the fabric samples. You will only be asked to pay the shipping cost.
  3. Price quotation: we will quote you a price for the designs and fabric that you wish to proceed with. We will also make an estimate on the shipping cost.
  4. Samples: we will make the sample before the actual manufacturing starts and we need your formal approval on the sample before we can manufacture the product. Cost: To make samples, we need to pay a sampling fee to the pattern maker and factory, which will be charged to you at 300 euro per style. If the actual manufacturing is decided to go on, then 150 euro will be refunded but if you drop the project after sampling, the full 300 euros will be not refunded. The sampling fee covers only one time change to the design after sampling. Any further changes to the design after that will result in extra sampling fees. This does not include the cost of having the samples shipped to you with UPS or Fedex.
  5. Down payment: we require a 50% down payment on the order before manufacturing starts. Production starts as soon as the payment is confirmed and after that we can no longer cancel or change the order.
  6. Manufacturing: manufacturing usually take takes about 1 month. For special projects that require extra work (like packaging or attaching swing tags) it can take a little longer.
  7. Shipping: Products will be shipped to you as soon as they are available.
  8. Final payment: a final invoice will be issued as soon as the products are shipped. The unpaid balance needs to be settled within 7 days.

  5. Color options: e.g. 2~3 colors (possibly including beige, oatmeal etc)
  6. Quantities per size & per color: keep in mind that the minimum for the initial order is at least 30 pieces per one size per one style
