Welcome to the second page of our wholesale clothing directory section on Apparel Search.  In this area of our guide we present information about companies that are relevant to the wholesaling of clothes and accessories.  Wholesaling, jobbing, or distributing is the sale of goods or merchandise to retailers; to industrial, commercial, institutional, or other professional business users; or to other wholesalers and related subordinated services.  In other words, it is the sale of goods to anyone other than a standard consumer.

If you work for a clothing company and you produce or distribute clothing, it is possible that you need to purchase items such as fabrics, zippers, buttons, lace, or thread to either manufacturer or repair garments.  You may also require trimming to make the items floor ready for retailers such as price tickets, hangers, hangtags, bellybands, etc.  If that is the case, you can visit the trims & notions wholesaler section to find suppliers.

Are you looking to find reliable sources of clothes or accessories for personal use?  If yes, this is possibly not the proper site for you.  This is an apparel industry directory and the wholesalers listed in this section only sell to retailers.  If you are looking for designer clothing, footwear or handbags at discounted prices, you may want to check elsewhere. This section is not about finding consumers rock bottom prices on designer product.

What is wholesale clothing?

A fashion accessory wholesaler or apparel wholesaler is also often referred to as a distributor. The wholesaler or distributor typically purchase product from manufacturers (factories) and then they sell the product to others. Normally, a fashion wholesaler will sell clothing to retailers (stores). The store will in turn sell the garments to consumers. However, some wholesalers will sell direct to consumers.

Apparel wholesalers typically do not produce the actual clothing. They are simply the middle person between the producer (factory) and the consumer (retailer or final consumer).
