How we can help you

Select the services you want

1. Consultation

More Info

Some clients have a very clear idea what the product is they want to make – with drawings and market research ready to support their idea. Other clients have a gut instinct and maybe some market research and experience but have only vague ideas what the product will be like.

Which ever stage you are at – we offer you the opportunity to have a consultation with an expert to discuss your idea in detail – in confidence, so you can decide how to take the idea forward for a fixed fee.

In a consultation we listen to your objective, discuss the market research, look at the options for shape, form, function, styling for the product and study the competition in the marketplace with you. After the consultation you are welcome to take any of the ideas we propose and go to any supplier – or if you want you can hire us to take the project forward.

2. Market Research

More Info

Market research can help you prove to both yourself and investors if your idea will appeal to target customers.

If you have already done in depth research that is great!
But maybe we can help you with professional market research to provide more evidence? This will help support both financial and design decisions.

As experts in bag and luggage development we have excellent knowledge of what is happening in the bag and luggage market.
So we offer to do independent primary and secondary research for you to help your planning.

3. Concepts

More Info
This is when we create ideas and drawings that show what the product will look like, how it works, and includes a fully set of annotated drawings to explain how the product could work. We generally create 3- 5 alternative ideas that you can choose from, and work with you to make sure you are happy with the one you choose.

When you choose the best concept we will have the basis of the design, and can proceed to the detail phase…

4. Design

More Info
At this stage we design the product in detail – inside, outside and in all details including constructional details, fabrics and trims etc.

If you need amendments we just do what you need, no arguments.

5. Specification

More Info

Creating a specification ( or ‘tech pack’ as some people call it) is the document that can be used to create the first sample. This document is created so that any factory – anywhere in the world, can make the product with confidence.

The bag specification document might be over 20 pages long will include drawings, measurements, fabric and colour and trim specifications so the prototype can be made. 

6. Sampling

More Info

We can arrange to make the prototypes, and get the fabrics and pricing and quality right for you.We can arrange manufacture in the UK, Europe or in the Far East – whichever suits your plans best.
