In the process from design to a wearable garment, there are many different choices to make, it is important to oversee this process from start to finish. Compare it to the construction of a house, for that you would call in a contractor. Without this link, it is almost impossible to coordinate everything as a whole.
When it comes to product development in the textile industry, I am the one who connects all these links.
Regardless of the number of choices that have to be made in product development, every step will have to be managed in the right direction. Because of my years of work experience in the international textile world, I can foresee where problems will arise and can adjust them in time.

To ensure that quality is guaranteed in the long term, I develop a work description containing all the characteristics of the design. That's my day job.
Build a working document that defines the technical design, the raw materials that have been chosen and the material characteristics, the measurement scheme, and all the details that are needed to be able to instruct each supplier worldwide what the exact intention is.
Quality should be continuous, an underlying document that includes all variables is crucial and indispensable for long-term success. It is not possible to realize a quality product without this technical basis.
Product development means that I guide the way from design to producable garment from the very first step, and I not only advise clients in the selection of the right raw materials, but also on more complex issues such as the possibilities to make an existing product more sustainable.
