Zhaowen Textile Clothing Co. Ltd

When Zhaowen first opened its doors in 2003 it was the realisation of a life-long dream for owners Wang WenGang and his wife, Zhou Chunai. Over the years, the couple have worked hard alongside their mills and laundry (whom they have had 10 year long relationships with) to build a business which is now a major supplier of cut and sew jersey items for the US, Australian and New Zealand markets as well as for the Chinese domestic market.

From small beginnings, the factory sewing line can now produce up to 500,000 pieces a month and their sample room can output (up to) an amazing 1,200 pieces a month.

Much of the production line machinery is imported from Japan and Italy helping to establish the factory as a producer of high quality knitted garments.

LOCATION: Shenzhen Guangdong Province China. ESTABLISHED: 2003. EMPLOYEES: 1,000. PRODUCT: Women’s and Men’s t-shirts. ITEMS PRODUCED PER MONTH: 500,000

How Our Business Relationship Started

Wang WenGang and Zhou Chunai were introduced to Jeanswest management through a friend shortly after the factory doors opened and have since had a strong and productive 13 year business relationship. Over these years our product and design team have worked with Zhaowen, their printer and fabric mills in China developing many of Jeanswest’s best-selling t-shirts.

Styles Produced for Jeanswest

Nothing partners with denim better than the humble t-shirt and Zhaowen is one of the biggest producers of Jeanswest’s diverse range of t-shirt styles, cuts and colours. Zhaowen has been a consistent partner in the production of our high quality cut and sew garments from basic tees to complex jersey garments for the 13 years we have been in business together.

Employee Focused Initiatives

Wang WenGang and Zhou Chunai value the hard work of their employees and like all good employers they like to recognise and reward this hard work. Factory funded day trips to popular local tourist sites are often organised for all employees and their families to unwind and relax. Zhaowen also have a strong sense of community and has established an Education Foundation to support poor and disadvantaged communities in and around Hubei Province.
