A Collaborative Journey from Design to Production
Our Sampling Kit provides a dedicated project manager who will guide you through each step of the production process, ensuring a seamless and successful experience. From fabric sourcing to sample development and production setup, our expert team will be by your side, offering valuable insights, expertise, and industry connections.
Dedicated Project Manager:
Your dedicated project manager will act as your primary point of contact, overseeing the entire production process. They will onboard the ideal manufacturer based on your product category, pricing preferences, quality standards, and location. With their expertise, they will negotiate prices, manage timelines, and communicate design and fit revisions to ensure your vision is translated accurately.
Our team of experts will assist you in selecting the perfect fabrics for your collection. Utilizing your design direction and tech packs, we will source 1-2 fabric swatch options per fabric type, considering factors such as minimum order quantities (MOQ), availability, and your preferences. We will send fabric swatches directly to your chosen address for review, and one revision per fabric type is included. We'll manage fabric orders and oversee custom fabric development if needed, ensuring high-quality materials that align with your vision.
Pattern & Sample Development:
Included in our Sampling Kit is pattern development and sample development for one style. Our skilled pattern makers will create precise patterns based on your design specifications, and our experienced sample makers will bring those patterns to life, crafting a high-quality sample that showcases the craftsmanship of your garments. Additional styles can be accommodated at an additional cost based on materials and cut & sew labor.
We understand the importance of achieving the perfect fit for your garments. Our team will review photos and videos of the first prototype before it ships, providing initial feedback. We'll then host a virtual fitting session where we review design details, quality, and fit. Fit notes will be recorded, and one round of design revisions and one round of tech pack revisions are included based on the product review and fit session. We'll pass on the updates to the manufacturer to finalize the next sample, ensuring your garments meet your exact specifications.
As you near the final stages of the production process, our team will review the final samples and assist with the approval process for production. We'll manage the design and layout for final labels and logos, as well as assist with packaging and hangtag design and placement. Additionally, we'll provide recommendations for unit breakout, inventory purchase order, fulfillment centers, and even connect you with resources for marketing and selling your products, such as web developers, photographers, models, studio spaces, and social media experts.
