What's it all about?

Hot Sauce is that spicy stuff you put on your wings.
Hot Source is where kiwi businesses go to get stuff made.

NZ is full of clever folks with bright ideas. So, we created a product sourcing hub that's tailor-made for the small business, the startup, and the eCom entrepreneur.

What's so hot about it? Forget about yesterday's hot products, we'll help you source tomorrow's.

A look at what's coming down the clothing and apparel pipeline in 2022

2021 was a huge year for activewear, and 2022 looks set to follow suit. Bike shorts are back, seamless is in, and for the bold among us, the gym onesie is all the rage.

Innovative, multi-functional and sustainable fabrics are also reshaping the industry. This has provided small brands with an opportunity to carve out a niche in an industry traditionally dominated by the big boys and girls.

Casual wear

What do you wear to work when you’re not leaving the house? 2021 was a big year for casual wear, and it’s a trend that is set to continue through 2022.

It’s a look that seamlessly combines comfort with style, for those that want to lounge around and look good doing it.

Baby clothing

The baby apparel market shows no signs of slowing down in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 80 billion globally by 2027. That’s exciting news for businesses in the industry.

Neutral shades, organic materials, customisable clothing, and super soft fabric blends are all trending in 2022.

Sustainable materials

T-shirts made of mushrooms? Belts made from cactus leather? Pineapple leaf loafers?? Things are getting interesting with sustainable clothing.

The modern clothing consumer has sustainability on their mind, and at Epic Sourcing, we’re all for it.
