A factory may have their own minimum order requirements – either total number of pieces per SKU, or, total dollar amount (for example, minimum $10,000 per shipment).

However, if you are developing your own fabrics, because you cannot find and purchase your desired fabric ready-made, then the fabric mill also has minimum order requirements that you will have to juggle. This MOQs are usually in the form of minimum yardage or meters. (In China, usually 300-500 meter minimums).
