Looking for a CMT unit in the UK?

Very simply, CMT stands for ‘Cut Make Trim’. It is a manufacturing term that describes just that- the garment construction alone. Different to a fully factored service, this means that the client will provide fabric and trims. As well as the physical components, we would require tech packs, size scales and ideally a sample to replicate. 

Once this has all been received, we would produce a prototype, or sample. This is to check the fit, construction and finish of the garment. We can add labels or decoration such as screen print or embroidery. 

The benefit of CMT only is that a brand can use very specific fabrics they have sourced themselves, or unique trims. You are also not bound by minimums such as Pantone dying (2 rolls). 

The alternative to this would be a Fully Factored service. This means that we would be able to source fabric, offer dyeing or fabric printing, creative prototypes and then proceed the bulk manufacture. This may be more suitable for start up brands.

At Creative Sourcing we are able to offer CMT or a Fully Factored service for jersey products. These include baby wear, kidswear, leisurewear such as sweatshirts, joggers, hoodies and shorts. We can also produce T shirts and other tops. We work with jersey materials. 

We hold organic cotton jersey in 180gsm and 220gsm, as well as a 280gsm poly-cotton loopback for sweats. These can be digitally printed on the roll using our Direct to Fabric printer, or Pantone dyed. Alternatively we can garment dye the items after construction in our dye house. 

All of the garment construction, decoration and dying is done in our UK factory, based in Leicester. This means you are able to proudly label your items as ‘Made in Britain’
