Sourcing and choosing the right fabric is probably the most difficult
part about product development.
Every season has it’s own unique fabric and color trends, and the
ever-changing fabric technology doesn’t make this process any easier. Having this knowledge beforehand and advising our clients is what we
do best. Knowing where to look and who to
contact will make decision-making easier and production phase smoother.
This is where the big idea comes to life. All the decisions about fabrics and trimmings and sketches come together to build a prototype.
We work very closely with our client and our manufacturers to ensure that there aren't any delays and blockages. We create a realistic time and action calendar for our clients so that all delivery dates are met while maintaing the right quality. We understand the creative process requires revisions and corrections, so we include several days in our calendar to make everything just right before it goes into final production.
Delivering on time with quality standard products is of utmost importance to us. For our domestic production we are physically present during production to ensure quality control. For foreign production we only work with manufacturers that have been proven to be at industry standard and reliable, and we communicate with them regularly to ensure delivery dates are honored.

A techpack is a mode of communication between the designer and the manufacturer. The clearer directions you give, the better quality of product you’ll receive. Many emerging designers have great ideas, but lack in expressing that idea fully. We make sure you’re work is well presented to the makers, so that there are no errors and delays in the production phase.
