Mudo Fashion is a contracting service for sample-making and production of RTW collections. Mudo Fashion was established in 2004 to create a service for an efficient production process targeting women’s garments. Many of our techniques and methods have been developed over the years.

It was evident that in order to create an efficient system, we had to figure out how to deal with troublesome materials. Therefore, we have invested in machinery that would enable us to replace the laborious hand stitching method with specific machinery for a cleaner finish while retaining the same quality. We also possess different stitching capabilities such as picot, roll & hem, pick, merrow, purl merrow, and other stitches.
