AllSaints Return for their Second Factory Tour

On 14th December the Production team at AllSaints attended the Factory Uncovered CPPD workshop to learn how an ethical factory operates and learn about the latest garment manufacturing technologies.

During the four-hour workshop they were taken through the complete garment production process with Caroline Ash, Production Director. Caroline explained everything from what makes the factory fully compliant, what to look out when visiting factories, how long it takes to stitch a garment and the different machine operations, how a garment is costed, how do factories calculate standard minutes and much more!

The group were also introduced to the factory’s latest technologies and the micro factory concept with the Kornit digital printer and Zund master cutter.

If was a great workshop with excellent feedback!

Organised by their Senior Production Manager, Kate commented:

“This was an excellent course / experience. Caroline condensed years of learning and experience into a few hours. Loved it! So worthwhile and wonderful to see the innovation, enthusiasm and expertise right here in London!”

Further feedback included:

“Very insightful and interesting, covered everything you need to know about how a factory operates.” Jade, Garment Technologist

“A complete overview of production from start to finish with all problems that can arise in great depth. There is so much to mention I learnt a great deal!” Amy, Production Admin Assistant

“Had a fantastic trip yesterday to Fashion-Enter! It was a wonderfully informative session and tour, showcasing the incredible talent of the staff in manufacturing garments for both luxury and high street clients.”

“It was inspiring to see how they embrace and utilise new technologies to maximise efficiency and design choice.” Robert, Senior Pattern Cutter

AllSaints production team had the amazing opportunity to visit Fashion-Enter for a factory visit and talk this morning. We all learned so much and I found it a highly beneficial day to further my understanding of production processes. I especially found it useful to understand how and where we can improve our production to be more ethical and sustainable.” Lucinda, Production Admin Assistant

We hope to welcome another group from AllSaints to the Factory in the New Year.
