The cost of making your item will depend on complexity of the product and number of units you want us to make –  please get in touch with us for an individual quote.

 

We can work from any stage of development, from a sketch, to specification sheet, tech pack or even a sample. However the more information you have when making your enquiry, the clearer understanding we will have of your requirements, saving time.

 

Costing guidelines

 

We quote on an individual project basis. Prices vary based on quantity, design, material and overall order size.


The cost to make each item depends on the time it takes to make it. This depends on the how complex the construction of the product is.

 

For products under 15 units per style we cost items at an hourly rate over unit cost.

For products over 15 units per style, we cost the item at a price per unit. This makes it slightly cheaper for you to make over 15 items, as the more we make in one go, we can work faster and more efficiently

 

For example, if you want us to make a bag –

If one takes 1 hour to make, if will cost £20.00

If we make 20, we can cut many out at the same time, and sew them quicker. Therefore they will cost approx £9.00 each.

 

Upon receiving individual designs and details or specification sheets, a first estimate is made on the production rate.

To get a further idea on pricing, contact us to discuss your product.

After we discuss pricing with you and we have agreed on the cost for the first sample, we work out your sampling and production schedule.


We like to produce a sample of the item first before going into production of multiples. This is to ensure it is exactly to your standard, and to confirm our production cost price is correct.

 

Our expertise is to guide you in the making of each product, in the highest quality and in line with each budget.

 

If products are developed for the first time it usually takes two rounds of sampling to progress items into production.

 

For example – If we are making the bag. You might decide that you want to change the length of the handles, and change the size of the bag, and add an inside pocket. This would require the pattern to be changed and the bag sampled again.

 

 

We can create samples from either ready-made patterns or create patterns in house.

We can also create samples from finished items or specification sheets.
