ABOUT OUR BESPOKE ACCESSORY AND SOFT FURNISHING SERVICES

 

We work with small businesses, startups, aspiring designers and students at different stages of their projects.
We can help from the development of an idea to the production phase, going through all the steps in between.
Our clients have different levels of experience so don’t worry if you don’t have the technical knowledge or drawing skills, we are here to help.
All the following services can be provided either in person at our studio or remotely.

Here are our services in detail:

 

DESIGN AND DESIGN CONSULTANCY
We can help with either a single design or develop a cohesive and complete collection of accessories or soft furnishings.
During our meetings, we will listen to your objectives, discuss your ideas and support you through every stage of your creative project.
We will explain how to deal with aspects of designing such as understanding product construction, creating a mood board, choosing the right materials, defining a colour palette, calculating cost price and mark up for your designs and more.

 

SKETCHING AND ILLUSTRATION
We can help translate your ideas into sketches and illustrations.
Fashion sketches and illustrations are the first step in bringing your ideas to life.
The basic purpose is communication. They express the mood of the collection/item as well as the general specifications of each product, showing how the final product(s) will eventually look.

 

MATERIAL SOURCING
We collaborate with reputable suppliers of leather, fabric, vegan leather and metal fittings.
We can advise you on the best suppliers for your project or take care of the material sourcing on your behalf.

 

CAD DRAWINGS
We can create technical drawings of your design(s) using Adobe Illustrator.
They are black and white digital drawings showing the product from different sides to display all seams, top stitching, hardware, and any other design details.
Technical drawings are essential to guarantee clear communication between all parties working on your project, to avoid mistakes and wasting time, money and resources.

 

PATTERNS
Once the specifics of your design(s) are defined and approved, the patterns are ready to be created.
If you are already in possession of patterns for your project, we are happy to use them instead.

 

MOCK-UPS
For more complex designs, we suggest our customers have a mock up made before creating the prototype.
This is the first step to test the patterns using a cheap material with similar characteristics of the final product.
It doesn’t have many details in it and it is mainly done to check the proportions and overall look of the item.

 

PROTOTYPES
Prototypes are unavoidably important to test the product before production.
They are made with the final material(s) and include all features.
They provide an opportunity to make any amendments needed before starting the production.

 

TECH-PACKS
Tech packs contain the CAD drawing plus technical information of each product such as dimensions, materials, hardware, types of finishing, types of thread etc.
They are essential documents which contain all the relevant pieces of information for the customer to be able to communicate smoothly with sample makers and manufacturers.

 

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Besides assisting you with creating a product from scratch, we can also help you develop an already existing design.

 

SMALL AND MEDIUM RUNS OF PRODUCTION
Depending on the complexity of the product(s), we can carry out small to medium bulk productions of your design(s).
We only require a minimum of 5 pieces of the same style.
