Cần Thơ, Vietnam
What We Make There:
Luthai is a world-renowned vertically-integrated shirt fabric maker and manufacturer. Their expertise ranges from traditional cotton broadcloths, to our favorite custom-milled blended-fiber knits such as in our Hybrid shirts.
Because Luthai operates both the fabric mill and garment factories - they have the ability to utilize machinery specific to each fabric type to create the optimal shirt.
With our partners Jay Apparel, we’ve been able to develop an array of custom performance fabrics for our shirting, and optimized production processes that allow ease of care and a crisp aesthetic all day. The factory is WRAP certified insuring responsible and fair working conditions for all workers.
Why We Chose Them:
In the last year, BlueWave moved to a new factory and invested in new equipment, doubling production capacity and improving quality. Their systems include:
Robotic cutting that allows digital patterns to be directly cut to fabric.
Large-scale laser cutting technical components and laser perforations.
Automated sewing with 2-axis sewing robots for intricate seam work.
Ultrasonic bonding machines that create clean, stretchable stitch-free seams
Computerized production line that efficiently moves garments around and enables better quality through individual tracking of a garment.
