“The great thing about manufacturing in the US is speed to market and the ability to test products without doing a large commitment,” says Louis Friedman, the CEO, and founder of LUVU Brands. “We can conceive a product, design it, and get it to market in a couple of weeks.”
Once the design are finalized, pieces are cut with the CAD machines and sent to worker stations on specially designed conveyer [Eton] machines that hang from the scaffolding. Each worker does a specialized task: one person sews in the seam, then sends the fabric down the line, where another person puts in the zipper, and like that the cover continues to be shuttled from worker to work until it is finished.
