3 Things Affecting Cost of Garment Production in Nigeria

Let’s Unveil The 3 Things Affecting Cost of Garment Production in Nigeria

Ever wondered why your favorite Ankara blouse costs N10,000 while that Agbada is a whopping N50,000? The answer lies in the garment production costs in Nigeria, the dynamics of fabrics, tailors, and a whole lot of hustle (okay, maybe just a little hustle).

How much does it cost to produce a garment?

Let’s peel back the layers and understand the key factors influencing garment price:

1. Materials:

  • Fabric: From luxurious Aso-Oke to budget-friendly adire, fabric choice dramatically impacts cost. Think of it as the foundation of your price pyramid.
  • Trims & embellishments: Beads, buttons, tassels, and other finishing touches add flavour to your final product and also add to the final bill.

2. Labor:

  • Cutting & sewing: Skilled hands transform fabric into wearable art. Tailor rates vary greatly depending on location, experience, and the complexity of the design.
  • Quality control: Ensuring every stitch is perfect requires a keen eye and meticulous attention to detail, adding another layer to the cost equation.

3. Overhead:

  • Shop, Factory Rent & utilities: Every inch of space matters! From the bustling markets of Lagos Island to our noisy workshops, rent adds up.
  • Design & development: From initial sketches to final patterns, the creative process has a price tag, whether it’s a hand-drawn Alaari sketch or a digital Buba pattern.
  • Marketing & Distribution: Reaching the right customers involves transportation, online platforms, or even a trusty megaphone at the market – all adding to the final cost. See our products here

So, how much does it cost?

The honest answer? It depends. For us in Oyertur Garment Factory, we try our best to make sure that our products are affordable to our precious customers. A simple T-shirt could vary in produce, while a hand-beaded wedding dress could reach five digits or more. The sweet spot for most garments lies somewhere in between, often hovering around 25-40% of the retail price. You can check out our stores for our ready-to-ware

But wait, there’s a twist!

Just because a garment costs more to produce doesn’t automatically mean it’s better quality. Sourcing locally, using sustainable practices, and ensuring fair wages for tailors are invaluable considerations that can influence price without compromising on style.
