The Sadaka family is from a lineage of well-established garment manufacturers. Apparel Production was originally established in 1947. Teddy, the CEO, worked in the family business throughout his early ages and throughout college. He became a partner in the family garment manufacturing business and operated the factory until 1987.Teddy ended leaving his family business to become Vice President of Manufacturing at Leslie Fay (Breckenridge), and later served as Vice President of Manufacturing at Emanuel Ungaro, a division of GFT, the world’s largest manufacturer of designer clothing at the time. After his experience of working in the corporate environment, Teddy realized he would prefer to work directly with creators & brands to create a product that meets the expectations of quality.
