Portland Garment Factory is an independent design and manufacturing house located in SE Portland. PGF caters to new and established companies by offering pattern drafting, size grading, sample construction, low minimum line production and design consultation.
Established in 2008, PGF has expanded from a 300 sq ft studio to a 5000 sq ft warehouse that includes 20+ industrial machines, a 20ft cutting/marking table and a swing that hangs from the ceiling! PGF is a place where independent designers can place an order of 200 dresses, source material for the next season or have the production cut/marked only. “We are different because the design and manufacturing process is versatile and we work alongside the designer in a way that most factories cannot.” says co-owner Britt Howard.
So, join us and explore the ins and outs of Portland Garment Factory firsthand!
