Pattern Making

A pattern is a blue-print of your design which when sewn together becomes a three-dimensional garment. The pattern can begin life by draping with cotton fabric on a mannequin, or by drafting flat-pattern pieces together on our pattern-design table.

Samples

During the sample making process, our sample makers take an existing pattern and stich it together. This is when the construction of the garment is examined, and problems eliminated. We do this to ensure the production run with industrial machines runs seamlessly.

Production

After the design process a prototype is made. This is called a production sample. When the prototype is finished it is used by manufacturers as a guide.

Quality Control

We ensure all our work is thoroughly examined to exceed all of your expectations. We don't take short-cuts, and demand perfection.
