How We Help New Brands

We coordinate the design and development of spec sheets, patterns, and samples for your tech packs through our London-based network. Specialising in lingerie and swimwear, including underwire bras (core and plus sizes), briefs, men’s boxers, swimwear, loungewear, and sportswear, our approach is designed to be flexible and supportive.

This includes; Designing, Tech packs, Fabric sourcing, Pattern cutting, Toiles & samples, Fit assessments, Grading/layplans, Production.

We understand that the burden of large minimum orders weighs heavily on many small enterprises. In light of this, we have chosen to adopt a client-centered approach by removing Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs) for tech pack development, pattern creation, and sample production.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a technical design spec and how is it created?

A technical design spec is a black and white CAD line drawing that details the front and back of the garment, including stitch lines, seaming, and component features. It also includes required annotations. The technical design specs can be created based on supplied sketches and reference images.

What is a Bill of Material (BOM) and why is it important?

The BOM is a spec sheet that is part of the tech pack. It provides essential details for your factory, such as materials, trims, and components required for production. It is important to have a clear BOM to ensure accurate manufacturing.

Can you help source fabrics and other materials for the intimate apparel samples?

Yes, we work with clients to source fabrics, trims, components, prints, labels, and packaging for the samples.

What are toiles and how are they used in the sample creation process?

Toiles are initial prototypes created in cheaper fabrics. We prefer to use the final fabrics for the toiles whenever possible. If final fabrics are not available, we use toiling fabrics and components of similar weight and stretch. Toiles help assess fit and make necessary adjustments before proceeding to the final samples.

How are patterns created for the samples?

We generate our patterns through manual or digital methods, and after grading, these files can be converted to work seamlessly with various pattern cutting software.
