DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Our London based designers develop two main collections, along with small top ups throughout the year. Designs have mass market appeal meeting customer’s expectations on style, whilst keeping prices at a competitive level.
We offer an exclusive design service to clients allowing us to develop exclusive artworks or entire capsule collections.
Full access to all of the latest trend forecasters provides us with detailed up to the minute catwalk reports and global predictions at the click of a finger. All of which are filtered and translated to create fashion forward commercial designs.
Our design development centre in China presents us with inspirational knit concepts and fabric developments with a fully dedicated team to support us with your sourcing requests.
We have a renowned reputation for quality and together with our large experienced team of fabric, yarn and garment technologists, we have earned a reputation as market leaders throughout the industry. Our inspection centre has specially equipped facilities for needle detection and our suppliers are fully certified.
Our internal quality controllers conduct inline, midline and final inspections in accordance with A.Q.L 1.0 or as per your specific requirements.
We also collaborate with SGS and ITS for third party inspections and testing.
When it comes to manufacturing, we ensure that we use a directly controlled accredited supplier who have the right facilities that are best suited for each style and client. We maintain complete control over quality and cost for every style that goes into production.
Sales, price negotiation and order follow up is carried out directly with our accomplished teams in China. This direct communication shortens and simplifies the approval process which allows us to offer faster lead times.
This process is also supported by the sales team in London when required.
GTIG have an extensive sample development team of over 200 people based at our head office in China.
Having our own sampling facilities allows us to prioritise and react quickly to all sampling requests without having to rely on suppliers. The experience and knowledge of our sampling team allows us to offer the best solutions in terms of fabrics and yarn to ensure prices remain competitive.
