product development & manufacturing

Recently we have seen a rise in enquiries by fashion start-ups with no prior industry experience. In such cases we require all potential clients to first complete a 2h business assessment and fashion production introductory training session via Skype with one of our consultants. For our terms and consulting rates, please email hello@hiddenstitch.co.

Based in Ljubljana (Slovenia) and London (UK), we offer personalised professional technical support for fashion startups and independent designers, who are looking for quality, reliable product development and manufacturing to meet their specific needs.

We offer first pattern generation and garment sampling services via our London design studio, Ljubljana design studio and our Slovenian manufacturing partners, depending on garment type. Our product development fees start at 200€ per garment for simple styles and go up to 2000€ per garment for tailoring. We formulate our Product Development offer on case by case basis, taking into considerations the number of styles, the intricacy of fabrication and additional services requested.

Connecting Independent Fashion Entrepreneurs with sustainable micro-manufacturing in the heart of Europe.

Over the years we built strong relationships with Slovenian manufacturers, from small family-run workshops to mid-sized factories, carefully selected for their quality , attention to detail, ethics and their ability to offer low-volume manufacturing at an accessible price. Our partners are longstanding specialist producers of premium tailoring, menswear, womenswear, knitwear, sportswear,  outerwear, evening wear, bridal, luxury lingerie, nightwear, swimwear, beachwear, accessories, digital printing, silk-screen printing, machine embroidery.

Slovenia is one of Europe's best kept secrets not only for its natural beauty, amazing food, and award-winning wine! Slovenia is one of the few remaining EU countries with a longstanding and uninterrupted tradition of textile and clothing manufacturing going back to the 18th century. It also helps that Slovenia is so very small you could easily do a factory visit or two in the morning, then hop for a dip in the Adriatic sea or a short hike up the Julian Alps in the afternoon!
