At Bespoke Textiles, we create luxury products for those who act as the face of our high end clients in the hospitality and heritage industries. Inspired by the traditions of British tailoring, companies such as Bentley & Skinner and JW Marriott are leading the way in expanding their collections to include brooches and lapel pins.
This smallest of detail to adorn a bespoke suit or shirt is an understated and elegant way to elevate your brand’s image. Bespoke Textiles has put together how we approach creating a brooch or lapel pin, so that you can get to know our process and understand our dedication to quality control and exquisite design.
Step 1: Design
Bespoke Textiles always takes the time at the beginning of the process to sit down with a client to brainstorm their inspirations and visions for the brand, using pictures and mood boards to come up with a variety of ideas. We then narrow the vision down into one story, one message, one brand with products that reflect style and purpose.
The brand’s unique identity soon reveals itself and we always end up finding the core of the brand in one design which can be used as a starting point to branch out into a product collection.
Step 2: Sourcing materials
Sourcing sustainable materials and suppliers is something that Bespoke Textiles are 100% committed to. When it comes to brooches and lapel pins we are happy to scour the globe for the best possible sustainable materials from factories of the highest caliber for the right price point. Price will vary depending on your choice of stones, precious metals, base materials and where they are coming from. We then create a tailored supply chain based on the client’s price point, volume requirements and the design specification.
Step 3: Develop – creating a prototype
This is a very initial form of quality control and allows you to reconsider the human aspect of your product again and check it lives up to your requirements; is it uncomfortable to wear in reality? Are any embellishments or precious stones to heavy or too big? If this is the case then we keep working to find the optimum resolution. This also allows you to test the quality of the manufacturers quality and interpretation.
Step 4. Manufacture your pins
The manufacturing process consists of carefully planned stages, which we monitor the making of the brooches and lapel pins. Even though all the hard work our end is done, it’s important to remain in contact with your factories and suppliers at each stage to stay up to date with their progress and ensure quality and deliverables are met, to arrive on time.
Step 5. Quality control
Quality control is a very important stage; it allows you to take control of the situation and is one final moment to perform any tests that ensure you have created a unique, stylish and comfortable addition to your product collection.
