We have told you about our tech pack development and pattern services andSHIMA SEIKI computerized flat knitting machines but today we want to highlight our sample development and small scale production facility.

From sketch to tech pack to pattern to finished sample, our experienced team will guide you through all the technical requirements of building a garment and transforming your concept into a sample that is showroom or runway ready so you can do business. We will work from sketches, tears, or even original garments and collaborate with designers to help develop the appropriate construction.

Sample garments provide designers the opportunity to correct fit, finishing and details before proceeding with production and to make sure it’s exactly what they were expecting. Having access to a sample maker and production room in their city allows designers to oversee the sample development more closely while shortening the development time and making production much more efficient.

Faster access means faster production time, which in the world of fashion, sometimes means make or break for a designer.

Finding a facility in NYC that can produce small orders for affordable prices is difficult for most emerging designers who haven’t navigated the production landscape for very long. Our production room is focused on affordable small run production, 1 to 50 pieces using the newest in manufacturing technology and production methods.

Opening for select designers this month. Open to the public January 2015.
