Alongside our main Los Angeles operations, we conduct sewing production in Ensenada Mexico.
Our Mexico Production is part of the 807 program where fabric and cut pieces are produced in USA, while sewing assembly happens in our Mexico Factories.
After assembly is done, the goods are shipped back to our Los Angeles Factory to be prepared and shipped to our customers.

Guatemala Production may be limited by fabric availability. So in order to take advantage of the location we also offer our customers stand-alone Cut & Sew in Guatemala.

This efficient sewing factory is overseen by Golden Green’s own Quality Control Team.

Golden Green offers flexible Production Programs fit your brand’s needs.
We offer a range of production programs for the different stages of your product life cycle, including Test Programs, Replenishment Programs, and Proceeding Programs.
Inevitably, some styles will not be successful on the retail sales floor. Bulk production of an untested product can result in losses if the style doesn’t sell.
Enter the Test Program. By producing small quantities you test the sales floor performance and determine if the style makes the cut for mass quantities production.
Some brands carry a specific style year-round as part of their core collection. They need the style in their stores at all times. In this situation Golden Green offers Replenishment Programs. In this program, styles can be produced repeatedly—without hassle—to maintain a steady quantity of core styles in your Distribution Center.
