SAMPLE MAKING & PROTOTYPING

Before you can go to production, you must master 1 Sample in the design studio.

In Italian, our team calls the samples Campioni, which is Italian for Champion or Sample.

It’s not coincidence: the sample is know as the champion because the sample has to be a perfect prototype, demonstrating the cut and sewing construction that will be followed in production.

If your sample is not perfect in construction, you will run into problems in production. Can our design studio help you perfect that sample first?

The Importance of Sample Making

When to Make Samples?

This is the final step of the Product Development. At this point, you have properly done technical design, sourcing, and pattern making. You know your raw materials.

While it is the last step, it certainly isn’t the last in terms of importance: Sample Makers have to be more than home sewers or tailors: sample makers should have knowledge of production methodology and must communicate with the designers, pattern makers, and production managers to guarantee that the sample is being brought to life in the highest quality or artistry, always keeping in mind efficiency for production.
