New Web portal links U.S. factories with U.S. designers
-In a small cluttered sewing room in San Francisco, Jesse Dhillon and Chris Wake are hoping to redesign the ubiquitous uniform for tech professionals across Silicon Valley, the hoodie.
-There's a lot of things wrong with it, but there's a couple things that I really like, it's a slim fit, it's a light material.
-Typically, it'd be near impossible for 2 amateurs.
Startup guys by day, to needle into the garment industry.
That's because the majority of production is done overseas where communication is difficult, and costs are prohibitive for a small batch.
-Every client has come to me, who's tried to go on off shore as it has a nightmare story.
-Laury Ostrow, from the San Francisco factory, SJ Private Label, connected with the founders of Subrational through a new website, Maker's Row.
-As of right now, it's much easier to find many factories on the other side of the globe, than it is to find in your own backyard.
-In less than a year, Matthew Burnett and his Maker's Row co-founder, Tanya Menendez, have already
enlisted 14 hundred American factories and have made tens of thousands of connections between them, and designers.
-We're just really excited about being able to create these connections and really make an impact on American Manufacturing.
-As for SJ Private Label and the Subrational team and their hoodie, the design process has just begun.
-It has to be a balance between, you know, stylistically, what-- you want to look like and then also, you know, at what price point you're gonna bring it in.
-But for the designers, driving across the city to meet with your manufacturer is a whole lot easier than flying across an ocean.
