  1. Product Development

Fabric Sourcing

We will begin the sourcing process to find suitable fabrics and trims for your designs and will send them to you for selection.

Size Chart Grading

We can help you develop a size chart specifically for your product. Having a standart for your brand allows you to create a consistent fit.

Tech Pack

While the sourcing is underway, our in-house design team will help to finalise your details and develop tech packs for your designs.
We will send these tech packs to you for your confirmation before starting on the samples.

  1. Patternmaking& Samples Development

Do note that as everything is made from scratch, it usually takes 2-3 rounds of sample to get all the details right and ready for production.

Pattern Making

We make hand drafted patterns from sketches using your size charts or custom measurements.

These are a must before any of your designs are able to go to production.

We can check and alter your existing patterns to achieve a desired fit.

Sample Development

With a sample you are able to test the fit of your garment, the shape, the way your fabrics drape etc. After we create a sample we send it back to our clients for them to decide what changes need to be made. This process can require multiple samples and in the end you are left with a garment or product that is made specifically to suit your specifications.

Pattern Grading

Grading is the final step of the development process where we translate your base pattern across your size range. We also can grade existing pattern into various sizes depending on your size chart.
