20 to 30 people, consisting of:
Cutters - They lay out all the fabric and cut out the individual pattern pieces which will then be passed on to our machinists who construct them in their 3D form.
Pressers - They press all the garments that come back from our machinist before they get picked up or sent out.
Machinists - They sew and finish the garments once they have been cut out by the cutters. Will work on both samples along with production.
