COLLABORATE. CREATE. PRODUCE.
Bringing your product to life. From concept through production, we are there for every step with our one full-service studio located in Columbus, Ohio.
The product development process is extensive and complex. At Columbus Apparel Studio, we break it down into 3 steps: Collaborate, Create, Produce. The number #1 focus is on the client and creating a partnership to develop the best product in a collaborative and creative environment.
We want to get to know our clients, their business and product ideas. We take the complexity out of product development by walking you through the process and are there in every step. Contact us, we want to chat with you today. Schedule a free 15 minute consultation to help get you started.
In this process, we first finalize your concept with our design services and begin bringing the product to life with our technical design services. Once concept is finalized, we begin creating the pattern and detailed spec package on how the garment is to be constructed, and specification of trims, fabrics, stitches, etc. Fit sessions are conducted with all tweaks made to the pattern after the fit session. Once the sample is approved, the pattern and spec package is finalized and ready for production.
From samples to small batch production, we are a small batch manufacturing facility with production orders starting at 100 units up to 5000 units. All produced in-house with our experienced and detailed professional industrial sewers.
