Located on Popular Street in La Mesa, Los Santos, the factory is owned by Lester Crest, who uses the garment business as a front to prepare various heists during the game. Several of Lester's workers can be found working at the several rows of sewing machines inside the factory, whilst also providing Lester with the various materials he uses to prepare his heists. The factory's design suggests it was built during the 1960s, and the radio station playing inside is East Los FM 106.2.
It is based on the Southwestern Bag Co. warehouse on 635 Mateo St, Los Angeles.
The factory acts as the main base of operations for some of the game's heists. Here, Lester and Michael De Santa plan a robbery on the high-end jewelrystore Vangelico and a raid on the FIB Headquarters to steal sensitive information.
Before starting the FIB job, Lester and Michael burn down the factory, both to cover any evidence of them planning the heist and for Lester to claim the insurance on the factory. Following the mission, the factory doors will be blocked off by police tape.
