The Idea Lab

Hoodie Clothing

The Idea Lab is Western owned manufacture of high quality premium Custom Hoodies. We understand that whilst Chinese factories are becoming increasingly efficient, sometimes they fail to meet our standards of quality and service. We are here to ensure those requirements are met.


China has emerged as a global supplier of just about every consumer item imaginable. But their position on the world stage, makes it very difficult to match differing clients requirements of quality and service. If you are buying from China, you want to be sure the product you are buying is manufactured to the highest standards. The Idea Lab has been stationed as a manufacturing specialist here in China for over 10 years. We service the role that ensures western companies are able to realise both product quality and customer service. If you are looking to manufacture Hoodies & Sweatshirts, The Idea Lab should be your first choice as your upstream partner here in China. 


We can cater for a range of different production runs, starting from as little as 100 to 150 pcs in mixed sizes. The Idea Lab oversees all purchasing of the material from the market meaning two things. One that we can ensure quality standards are met and two all colours are available. Typically Hoodies and Sweatshirts are made from a mixture of Polyester, Nylon & Cotton.  Although customers often experience issues buying garments from China owing to the different sizes around the world, The Idea Lab with over 10 years in China, is placed to ensure that clients get the right sizes in the right quantity ranging from XXS to XXXL. 



Whilst most manufacturers will have at least some control over the sewing, the quality of out sourced components such as the zippers cannot be guaranteed. Poor quality zippers lead to customer complaints and an inferior product. Whilst many manufacturers buy zippers at local markets, controlling quality can be hard. The Idea Lab oversees all component manufacture and we use SBS components only, widely regarded as the best zippers in the world. China has grown to become a fantastic producer of many of the world's goods, but there will always be a shortfall when it comes to expectations of quality. This is where we come in. We are here to ensure your standards of both quality and service are met throughout the manufacturing experience. 



Garment manufacturing in China is usually accompanied with the desire for a custom logo either printed or embroidered on the final piece. The good news, is we do both in house at very little extra cost. Logo application is another aspect of product manufacturing that is prone to quality issues, which is why we have brought it in house. Whilst there is almost no extra cost to you as the client for logo printing, if not done properly and the print deteriorates over time the quality of the finished garment suffers too. Manufacturing in China is still at an all time high, yet it is important to ensure your manufacturer shares the same ideas of quality control as you do. That is where we come in. The Idea Lab is here to manage your expectations and demands matching price with quality. Enquire below and we will get back to you with a quote.
