Base Layer Manufacturers in Vietnam

Hi my name is Chris. I prepare you to work with base layer manufacturers in Vietnam. My first experience with base layers was promoting Thai Son S.P sewing factory who bought fifty flat lock machines and spent a whole year training their staff and adjusting their machines to get it right. They made for brands like Voelkl and North Face. Since then I have met many other factories in Vietnam that have flat lock machines and experience producing base layer apparel. I can introduce you to them and help you every step of the way including quotation, sampling and production.

If you need more than just a referral we can offer other support services:

• Consulting
• Factory introductions
• Factory visits
• Costing (getting a price quote)
• Design and merchandising
• Quality control
• Factory audits/assessment
• Hosting (renting a desk in our office)
• Staff recruiting
• eBooks

What is base layer?

Base layers are under garments that regulate the temperature of your body to keep you warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. A base layer should fit closely like a 'second skin', and should be made from an appropriate wicking material, which not only allows you to move freely but also transports moisture away from the skin.

How wicking works?

Remember base layers do not prevent you sweating. The wicking process absorbs excess sweat into the fibers of your base layer. The base layer then draws this moisture away from your skin, where it is evaporated. This process ensures you maintain an optimum body temperature and stay cool and dry.
Base Layer Examples

Which fabrics can we make base layers?

Base layers can be made from different materials including wool, synthetic fabric and cotton.

Wool base layers are best for extreme cold temperatures. The common wool fabric is Merino wool, which has a much smoother final finish than a standard sheep's wool. Moreover the fibers are non-abrasive and ideal for people who have sensitive skin. Merino wool is a natural fabric that is comfortable and odor resistant, but is a less effective fabric at wicking sweat.

The most popular choice of base layer fabric is sy nthetic fabric. Synthetics are lightweight and strong. They are a wicking alternative to Merino, but are less efficient at resisting odor. They dry faster than and cost less than merino wool. People also can wear synthetic base layer for sporting in warm or cool temperatures.

Base layers also can be made of cotton but it is not ideal. Although cotton feels comfortable and can fit close to the skin, it is unsuitable as a technical layer as it soaks up moisture and holds on to it. This prevents quick sweat evaporation and makes the wearer cold and uncomfortable.

How can we take care of our base layers?

Clean your base layer after each use. Let it dry naturally.
If possible then hand wash your base layers. Avoid using harsh detergents because they can reduce your protective coating effect.

How can we find a small sewing factory in Vietnam?

We get many emails from garment professionals asking for small quantity production like 100 pieces or 500 pieces per style. This is a problem because most reliable factories in Vietnam are set up for high volume. For example, a typical MOQ in Vietnam is 5,000 pieces per style.

The solutions I would like to suggest are:

Produce locally (example in LA if in USA)
Come to Vietnam and visit small sewing factories in here – high risk
Contact Sylvie at
Contact Rebecca at
Keep in mind that the price will be significantly higher when doing 100 pieces vs 5,000 pieces. For example a quality fashionable blouse using chiffon fabric and single jersey fabric may cost you $20/piece when doing 100 pieces vs $4.5/piece when doing 5,000 pieces. In Thai Son our MOQ is 2,000 pieces per style per color and the main reason is that our knitting and dyeing factories have MOQ they impose on us. In order to get you the best pricing on fabric we need to meet their MOQ or else they charge us an additional fee for doing small quantity.

So, in conclusion: if you are looking for small sewing factories in Vietnam we recommend:
Make locally
Visit and meet small sewing factories in Vietnam face to face

Those are my owned tips for finding small sewing factories in Vietnam. If you have any questions then contact us.
