Detroit Sewn Inc., a full-service cut-and-sew manufacturer in Pontiac, is entering the blanks industry — clothing ready for logos or artwork — with the classic hoodie, its first product.
“When I opened the factory six years ago, my original goal was to manufacture t-shirts for local brands that are decorating and selling them,” says Karen Buscemi, president and CEO of Detroit Sewn.
“Now it’s finally the right time to go down this road, thanks to the name and reputation we’ve built over the years paired with the container ship issues causing huge inventory issues for U.S. companies large and small.”
The new Cozy Unisex Hoodie is made from substantial 14-ounce sweatshirt fleece and comes in sizes ranging from extra small to four-extra-large. It features a lined hood, grommets, and double needle stitching and is available in three colors with a selection of 14 different drawstring colors.
Retail, corporate, and wholesale pricing is available, along with an expanded variety of fabric color for wholesale buyers. In addition to manufacturing the hoodies, Detroit Sewn will decorate them upon request utilizing screen printing, embroidery, and heat transfer options.
In addition, Detroit Sewn plans to launch a t-shirt line before the end of 2021, along with two variations on the current hoodie. The company’s retail sales are made to order to combat wastefulness in global apparel manufacturing. Orders are cut, sewn, and shipped within two weeks.
During the pandemic, the company produced sustainable personal protective equipment for hospitals around the country.
