The need to manufacture.

Well, let’s make it as simple as possible.


You are launching a new perfume brand next month which will be sold as a gift pack. As a promotion, you are giving away a t shirt with every perfume sold. The t shirt must be orange to match the packaging of the gift set and must be suitable for ladies between the ages of 30 and 45, because those are the customers you are targeting. It is definite that you will not be able to purchase the t-shirts from any wholesalers because you will not get the correct fit or colour. What should you do?

LavaInk is connected to various CMT’s in the South African Clothing Industry. We will source the fabric and trims; make the patterns; do the manufacturing and add the finishing touches like printing or embroidery. All need is the idea and we will make it happen!

    1. Hi Drew. You are at the right place. We are a clothing engineer and consulting business. So all you do is give your designs and we do all the donkey work. We only use reputable suppliers and service providers and we also have a relationship with them and thus they offer us reduced pricing.

  27. Good day,we are working on our clothing line and we need to know the kinds of t-shirts you manufacture.We are not yet sure of the names of materials, but have an idea and know the materials when we see them.We were wondering whether its possible for us to come see you so you can show us your t-shirts and then we can choose which material we wish you to supply us with.

    Your prompt response will be greatly appreciated.
