Import children's clothing from China!
Clothes is a alcove through which I get a bunch of e-mails, and it's not difficult to see why - the profit margin is astonishing! It' not unusual for you to earn more than 80% margin on apparel (of course sell your own label - you won't do anything near design brands!) that most other businesses can only imagine.
However, really that 80% profit is just part of the history and if you dive deep there are many problems with the sale of clothes online, especially design labels. In the past, I have indeed dealt with this issue and explained my reason for keeping away from this allegedly very profitable area.
But, despite my own misgivings, today's postal service is about the import of clothes to Britain, especially children's clothes. Recently I got an e-mail from a blogs readers who had big trouble with a pretty big order of children's clothes and footwear from China, and he ended up loosing a great deal of cash by returning the whole batch because it didn't meet the necessary norms and rules.
To try to prevent such expensive errors in the near term, I want to consider exactly what you need to do when you import children's clothes from China to the UK. Firstly, the first points I would like to make relate to all clothes and shoes in general, as there are security rules that you must comply with in order to be able to market import clothes in the United Kingdom.
That should be really clear for everyone - after all, clothes are a very important material and a very important one. So, if you are selling import garments or shoes in the UK, you must make sure that your goods comply with the applicable health and safety and labelling standards, including:
It' all pretty evident and uncomplicated - the clothes you are importing for sales must be labeled correctly, with precise information about the material used. There are no size requirements, unlike what many say, so you can call a blouse "small" even if it's really big and wouldn't be a problem for you.
They should always try to adhere to the set size target, just because it leads to lower yields! In addition to these general rules for clothes, which mainly concern labeling, there are also some special childrens clothes qualifying criteria that you must fulfil in order to be able to market to UK consumers.
Of course, it goes without saying that kids will use their clothes differently from those of grown-ups and, of course, will be much less careful with dangers. In fact, you can buy a full manual on the production of children's apparel published by the BSI (British Standards Institution). Named BS 7907, it is the guideline for the construction and production of children's wear to enhance mechanic security.
Have a look at this links for all detail and to see if it's a rewarding buy for you as I can't help you (just note it's not cheap!): Though all these guidelines and rules may seem somewhat discouraging, if you've just begun to look in to imports, they really aren't that poor and every reputable apparel maker is already in line with all of them.
Except when you order large volumes and can manage to have in-depth inspection of the plant itself, both first and several times during production, I would probably advise you to keep away from China for the time being. What, Andrew suggests NOT ordering from China?! On the one hand, China is not the best choice.
Ultimately, it is not enough for the vendor to tell you that he has all the necessary certification and labeling - you as an importer are 100% accountable for the goods you are selling, so it is up to you to make sure that everything is as it should be. It would be a surer and less expensive alternative to look at some examples of EU producers, because then they are held accountable and you know that they will indeed have some experiences in working with EU businesses and regulations.
That may be a big shock for you in the UK, but there are still many large processing industries in Europe, and especially for apparel, Turkey is a good choice, as are some Eastern Europe nations (Poland, Lithuania, Latvia) and even Spain and Portugal!
I would probably suggest looking to India and Bangladesh, even if you order in large quantities/search for lower rates, as they should once again have greater expertise in working with Europe businesses. As far as imports are concerned, it is now appropriate to point out that children's clothes and shoes can generally receive a lower tax of 0%!
Hopefully you have found this brief manual useful and I even hopefully more that you take my suggestion to take Europe's supplier seriously seriously if this is a recess that interests you. To cover a similar subject, I will publish a manual for the import of children's games next Monday, so look out for it too.
