Yeah, like Lena said, it isn't an issue. You can ADD whatever you want. The issue is re-selling an item that has a tag removed without the permission of the producer.

Merged with existing thread. If you do a search first, you'll find ongoing threads on almost everything.

No Label T-shirts etc...
Does anybody know where I can get plain T-shirts without labels at the neckline? For printing and putting my own label..

I've found some US brands but I live in Europe so the shipping cost too much...

Please, someone!

Thanks...

Em

well for myself i don't think it's illegal. that's what plain t-shirt companies are in the business for - supplying plain tees for people to get their stuffs printed on.

as long u don't openly claimed u made em from scratch and let em find out? it's always a mystery how plain tees from the labels come about don't u? like how raf simons has that perfect softness. how dior homme's has the extra seam. and one thing in common is they will never tell u how they come from (yes no tags no clues), either they made from scratch or had sourced a good factory/supplier.

I know of a couple of people starting a line and they are using bamboo t-shirts. It's sustailable and their line is all about saving the planet, so it falls right into their company ideals. But I noticed that they were just about the softest t-shirts that I have ever felt. Unfortunately, I have no idea where they sourced these bamboo shirts.

Sourcing Jewelry Materials
For everyone that makes their own jewelry...

Where do you buy your supplies? Has anyone sourced overseas? If so how do you find these kinds of companies/factories?

I am looking to start a line of costume jewelry and want to find the best wholesale prices that I can, any help with this is much appreciated!!

Hello! I make my own jewelry and get most of my supplies from eBay, etsy, or a few different websites. I just kind of searched around until I found reasonable prices. I suppose it depends on what materials you would use. I'm kinda into a brass/art nouveau thing, so it's a lot of medallions, filigree, glass that you might not use, so I'm not sure it'd be worth it to list sellers. Just be careful about overseas, I've had some success, but check feedback as sometimes sellers list somethings as "amber" or "jade" when it's actually a fine material called "plastic".

Wholesale you need a tax ID number for. I only used one when I did a flea market this summer, and the hassle didn't really seem worth it in the end.

Sorry I can't be more help!

I would love to know of anywhere I can get wholesale soft tops in different styles/colours. I make my own at the moment but it isn't cost effective and takes up a lot of time! Any info would be much appreciated

Finding Serious Factories, etc.
So I'm currently working part-time for a fashion company in Asia, but I have close to no experience in this industry, so there's a lot I need to learn but sadly I can't ask my co-workers for help.

Here's my Q: How do you find leather manufacturers/factories in Europe without going to a leather fair or having a good network in Europe? (I'm European myself but am currently living in Asia.) I've been googling all morning (which is what my boss suggested I do) but can't find anything that seems serious. Is it an industry secret or what? How do these things work?

Excuse me for my extreme ignorance. I want to improve and learn.

I've been searching around the Fashion Spot but couldn't find what I was looking for, I'm sorry if something similar has already been posted and questions answered, I've been looking but maybe I didn't do it right.

Thank you!
