Un Available’s journey to becoming a custom t shirt printer in Vietnam starts in 1999 when two friends found how to make apparel production in Vietnam work. It was rough getting started due to the cultural differences but overtime they planted their UK roots in Vietnamese soil. Their turning point was creating a local branded store called L’Usine. Fast forward to today and they eight sewing lines making both knit and woven. They sold their L'Usine brand and now focus on serving other customers like Publish and The Peaceful Hooligan. They are a premium custom t shirt printer in Vietnam.

Darren was in Vietnam producing garments for European brands. Paul was in UK building his street wear fashion brand, Marshall Artist. Darren was producing for Paul and recommended they go all in and embrace Vietnam’s upward trajectory. The idea was to produce quality garments for small brands offering full service as a custom t shirt printer in Vietnam. Back in 1999, Vietnam was just beginning to blossom yet still operating like a Spaghetti Western. Darren and Paul identified cultivated a skilled work force, set up reliable fabrics supply chains and managed the outsourcing of silk screening. Vietnam was home and they became Un Available due to the incessant demand for their premium custom t shirt printing services.

Marshall Artists’ first Vietnam collection came together amazingly fast. They had four printed t shirts and three sweat suits. They ordered 750 of each style and started production within a week. They struggled with some faulty fabric and inks that were peeling off after two washes. They worked together with the local Vietnamese to import replacement fabric and buy higher quality inks for their second production run. The lessons they learned by the third production run in less than six months thanks earned them their reputation as a high quality custom t shirt printer in Ho Chi Minh City.

Fast forward to 2012, Un Available noticed the lack of street cred. in local fashion. They designed their own local brand and opened a store in Vietnam to showcase it. They learned quickly that Vietnamese taste for fashion is very different than western tastes and now only target travelers in the district one of Saigon.

Their history has been exciting and full of lessons learned. They have maintained their business contacts since 1999 and expanded their supply chains. They built a brand and sold it. Their history makes them one of the best custom t shirt printers in Vietnam. They are particularly good at the screen printing techniques listed below like rubber ink and 3D printing.
