New South Manufactory Fills Void in Design Community.

On September 1, 2015 New South Manufactory swung its doors open to the public. Though they have been open for just over a month, this new company is already impacting the fashion and design community in the Triangle –  filling a longstanding gap in production.

David Brown decided to start New South after trying to keep production in the States for his own apparel brand.  The cost and hassle of sending his products overseas or even across the country was more than someone starting off could afford and he realized many of his peers in the local fashion industry were having the same problem. Brown thought “What if we do this in house?” and New South was born.


Christina Shipman – New South’s Production Director.

New South describes itself as a “niche sewn products manufacturing facility”.  They can take a simple idea and turn it into a full-blown product, from start to finish. Services include making 2-dimensional patterns from an idea,  creating prototypes from a design and creating samples for test marketing.  They can also accomodate Micro-Production (runs as small as 20 units) Small Production and Regular Units.  Both small and regular production consists of cut, sewn, trim, and pack for units from 250-1000 units to production over 1000 units.  Find out more about their services here.

Brown wants his company to be a space for creative minds across the board and to add a new avenue of business for the arts community. He has found a way to bring creativity to numbers.  For more information or to contact New South, check out their website.
