When you’re searching for the best organic kids clothing manufacturer, there are a lot of factors that you need to consider. In this post, we’ll explore a few of the main factors to help you make a more informed choice.
Organic Kids Clothing Manufacturers: Spot the Difference
There are three main factors that differentiate premium quality kids clothing manufacturers from the other types of garment factories in the clothing industry. And there can be thousands of cloth manufacturing websites out there.
As you will have guessed by now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we start our post with ethics first. CM Garmindo is all about ethical manufacturing so if you come across any factories that are not visibly and publicly ethical, turn back!
Ethical Kids Clothing Manufacturers
When you’re conducting your online search, you should always add the words “ethical” or “fair trade” into your query. This will immediately cut those other garment manufacturers from your results.
Now comes the tricky part.
You need to visit the websites of those clothing manufacturers to see if what they claim matches what they do. Visit their websites, their social media, their LinkedIn profiles, their employee profiles, and see if anything else has been written about them online.
Clothing manufacturers that use “organic” fabrics may have a stronger belief in sustainability. This generally translates to better treatment of their employees as these positive beliefs permeate throughout an organisation. Fair Trade ethical means good working environments.
Specialised Kids Clothing Manufacturers
Many kids cloth manufacturers say they can manufacture children’s wear but how many of them are actually geared to specialise in making these types of clothing?
Firstly, you need a Technical Fashion Design department that specialises in creating the garment designs, each garment’s tech pack, properly graded sizes, digitised CAD patterns, and fabric nesting.
Secondly, your kids clothing manufacturer needs to have the correct types of machinery. Sewing a shirt takes 3 or 4 different machines depending on the type. CM Garmindo uses JUKI® Smart Solutions machines and a host of the most modern sewing technology on the market. This helps us reduce errors and increases manufacturing speeds.

“Organic” Means Organic
Finally, if you’re trying to find the best organic kids clothing manufacturer, they’d better have certified organic fabrics and other sustsinable components / trims. Always ask for certificates!
The garment manufacturing industry, like many other industries, suffers from fasle advertising and corruption. It’s too easy these days for cloth manufacturers to state their fabrics are “organic” even if they’re not. How can you know?
If a clothing manufacturer markets themselves as using organic fabrics, then the burden of proof is on them. They need to show you that their fabrics are in fact organic.
At CM Garmindo, if we source an organic fabric, it’s going to be from a certified textile manufacturer. And each of our fabrics supply chain partners can verify their claims by providing legal certificates.
Conclusion: What Makes the Best Organic Kids Clothing Manufacturer?

- Specialising in kids clothing is key because the entire company’s skills sets, machinery, and experience will be focused on making the exact types of kids garments you want for your brand.
