Open Arms Studio Production Process

Step 1:

Are we a good fit?

As a cut-and-sew manufacturer, we do not provide any sourcing or design services.

  • Clients must have already completed the pre-production and sampling process, including a tested pattern and completed sample.

  • Our manufacturing minimums require at least 100 pieces per style/sku in the same thread color.

  • If this sounds like you, the next step is to submit a partnership inquiry.

Step 2:

Production sample

Open Arms Studio’s production sampling process includes:

  • Consultation with Open Arms team

  • Three hours of production floor time utilizing the pattern to produce three samples

  • We provide you a unit cost for production

  • Production samples are set on the calendar after receiving all required items. Please plan for a turnaround time of approximately six weeks, but every costing is different.

  • Please click here for the Production Sample Checklist.

Step 3:


After receiving your production sample from Open Arms, these are the final steps to production:

  • Approve our sample and unit costing price

  • Have materials shipped to our studio

  • Work together to schedule production of your design! Production is typically scheduled 1-4 months out.
