How we work


Product Development

We start start the process with a free assessment of your current product range or your product ideas. It's important for us to fully understand your company’s goals and direction at this stage.  With your success in mind, we will identify any areas we consider in need of attention and suggest possible solutions.

Next we will prepare our Product Development package offer based on the number of unique styles and any services required. Once our offer is accepted and our development fees have been paid in full, we will proceed to prototying. Sometimes we can work from detailed sketches, but ideally we like to receive a physical sample or benchmark garment which is fabrication and fit comparable.

When the first samples are complete and approved and tech packs have been signed-off, the official product development process is concluded. We however offer Production Sourcing service to all our Product Development clients at no extra cost.

Production Management

Based on supplied information, a production action plan is formulated and a factory is selected in keeping with your company’s goals and production requirements. We will pair you with the factories best suited to handle your products and forward a brief presentation of the suppliers with contact details. Although we will be handling all communication, you will have visibility of any important information like prices and terms copied in our emails. We can also arrange factory visits during one our regular trips.

The prototypes and tech packs are then sent to the factory for counter-sampling in the correct fabric. The factory is at this stage able to cost the garment and supply a price based on your quantity requirement. Acting as your intermediary we ensure you get the best available price, without compromising on quality and ethics.

Once the sample is approved we are ready to book your production slot. We’ll oversee that that production is handled properly by monitoring and communicating with factories for quality and on-schedule deliveries. 

Last stage of production is quality control which our factories perform as standard but you are welcome to visit the production unit and oversee the final stages personally or we can perform this task for you. 

Your order will be packed in the factory's standard packaging if no packaging is supplied. Shipping is typically booked with clients currier account or it can be arranged by the factory and the cost will be added to the invoice.

Payment Terms

We require a deposit of no less than 1000€ or up to 50% of full product development order and the rest to be settled upon first sample approval and prior to TechPack handover. Product development fees under 1000€ are to be paid in advance in full prior to development work commencing.

Factory payment terms vary. Some of our factories require a 30-50% deposit, others offer up to 30 days deferred payment depending on order value and how established the relationship is. We work with complete transparency therefor you will receive the factories true prices, you will be invoiced by the factory and other service providers (grading, fabric printing, swing tags...) directly.
