With an experience spanning over two decades, the diverse team of professionals at SourceConnect is proficient in managing needs of both the clients and the local vendors. Whether the end product is a garment or a home accessory and whether the source is farm or a recycling hub, we understand that every client is unique and so is their requirement.
We are the solution to challenges that international retailers face in sourcing, ranging from geographical disparities, understanding design sensibilities, getting complete end-to-end traceability, meeting quality, cost and delivery deadlines to conforming to various technical and sustainability accreditation requirements.
Our vision: To become a value added Service Partner of trusted indigenous end-to-end textile solutions that promote economic, environmental and social sustainability for global retailers.
A culmination of these expertise is showcased in our proprietary, web-enabled and collaborative platform ‘SC Studio’ that was ideated to deliver to our clients a seamless infrastructure for an efficient, faster and in the long-term, a more effective supply program.
We’re constantly updating and upgrading ourselves to stay in adherence with the global accreditation standards and requirements of the textile industry be it in the realm of environmental or social sustainability. We help our clients connect with suppliers who are certified for:
In connection with the above, SourceConnect partners work with various natural fibres including Cotton, Jute, Kapok, Viscose, etc. as well as recycled fibres.
SourceConnect offers four customised “Service Packs” that individually cater to each client’s unique needs and yet together provide a complete end-to-end solution. This structuring gives the flexibility to choose from any or all of the service packs depending upon the business requirement.
Subscribing to one or all of the service packs gives the client and their team a direct and exclusive access to the SourceConnect’s team via the proprietary, collaborative platform called ‘SC Studio’.
Offers a complete bundle of design services starting with trend analysis for colour, prints and materials, moving onto concept boards and finally detailed technical design sheets with multiple permutations and combinations, all created by our team of design and material experts. The team also provides a detailed analysis by charting intended materials across various sustainability indices that allows the client to ensure that their product is not only trendy but meets all of their social and environmental objectives.
Offers an entire range of services that allow clients to make a variety of physical samples (First Samples) at our very own in-house sampling unit, based on design specifications either given by the client or created by our team of design experts. The clients get an exclusive access to our in-house library of fibers and fabrics of varying construction and weight, saving on project time. The clients then assess multiple product samples created from the shortlisted fabrics giving them a broad idea of the costs involved and that assist them to make an informed decision.
Once the First Samples are approved, our production experts comb through our extensive supplier database to match the client needs in terms of quality, minimum order quantities, lead times and accreditation requirements. The approved final partner is engaged for creating factory samples, zeroing in on the final costs and closing the logistical details. A Time and Action (T&A) plan is the end result of this pack that charts out the time lines and execution plan to meet the client’s targets in an effective manner. The T&A is made available to the client on SC Studio.
Offers complete production and post-production services to the client. Our experienced production and quality experts ensure that vendor partners follow timelines while adhering to quality and quantity targets. The team regularly visits the vendor’s production premises and is in touch with them on various concerns right from in-production sampling, production schedules and possible delays to finding solutions to meet the client’s targets. The Pack offers the clients a real-time status into the execution of the production program with periodic auditing of both process and product via SC Studio. At the very end our team aids the client in ensuring that the goods are packed as required and transported safely to leave Indian shores for their final destination.
