Looking for something far more interesting than T-shirts and hoodies to create for your brand? Stand out from the crowd. Start your own status crochet fashion brand for men or women now.
Crochet fashionwear is a sustainable brand idea that offers many benefits, not only to its wearer, but also in terms of repairs and longevity. Sure, it may go out of fashion by the end of Fall, but it’s probably going to make a comeback next year – and the year after that, too.
If you’ve been thinking about how to stand apart from all the competition in an apparel brand, consider crochet fashion items like handbags, shirts, and even swimwear.

So, more crochet, less hoodies…
Status Crochet Fashion Brands (+Factory links)
Crochet is having a moment, arguably starting with these Bode knits. They have them in a variety of styles and they’ve been knocked off everywhere. Here are some designs to get you inspired, and factories that can emulate these designs if you’re looking to start your own crochet fashion brand.
Bode have a nice collection, but these are the three that really stood out for me:
A style that I absolutely love is taking that same knit and applying it to jerseys like this Nahmias one here. This is probably my favorite clothing item of 2023.
There’s also a Supreme version of the sports top:
And this Amiri jersey looks great, too.
This is in full trend right now. We’re seeing tons of brands out with these throughout the Summer. I think we’re only going to see more through the Fall, but this is not the kind of thing that’s just going to be super-popular for one season and then go away.
The prevalence of quality fashion and styling content is leading people to more interesting craft inside of their pieces they choose to wear. And for brands, that means you need to be focusing on the same things for what you choose to produce. We’re going to see lots of viral items like this in the next 6-9 months.
The Crochet style is something you can integrate into your collections forever and just give it a touch of something different. Here are some factories to get you started…
These guys have a 100% on-time delivery rate and a response time of ≤1h. They have a low MOQ (minimum order quantity) of just 50 pieces, starting at under $17 per. Order 1,000+ and get them for under $10.
These guys have a 100% on-time delivery rate and a response time of ≤5h. They have a slightly higher MOQ of 100 pieces, starting at $15 per. Ordering in larger quantities won’t really save you much, a couple of bucks, maybe.
These guys have a 92% on-time delivery rate and a response time of ≤3h. They also have a low MOQ of just 50 pieces, starting at under $16 per. Order 1,000+ and get them for under $13.
Great stats on this one… These guys have a 100% on-time delivery rate, a 5-star business rating, and a response time of ≤2h. They have a 50-piece MOQ, starting at $15 per. Order 1,000+ pieces to get it at $10/piece.
Best prices on this list… These guys have a 98% on-time delivery rate, a 4.2-star business rating, and a response time of ≤4h. They have a 50-piece MOQ, starting at an unbelievable $10.37 per. Order 1,000+ pieces to get it at $8.22/piece.
You can take your design to any one of these factories and compare their quotes. Factory #3 above, for instance, offers much of the same designs as factory #1 (but factory #5 beats them all on pricing).
