Looking for a pattern cutter/sample maker in the UK

Posted on July 27, 2010 at 7:09 0 Comments

Hello,

I am looking for a pattern cutter and sample maker, to put together a couple of handbags.

I had a look on the supplier page and contacted "Eden Studios" but their email no longer works!
Can anyone suggest a reliable & talented company with reasonable rates in the UK?

Please post here or email directly at liloultd@gmail.com

Thanks

Hi Ingrid, thank you :)

as far as eco-friendly leather sources, here in bangladesh i would say they are not there yet... the waste managment is really bad, harsh chemicals, water waste,as well as health protection of workers, its a really dirty business. they are work on cleaning it up and moving all the tanneries to one set area to contol waste an such. I dont have a great source for eco friendly leather but i would say china or india would be better, here is a link to a tannery that pategonia uses in china, but im guessing their minimum order would be high. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYpAlmV5sNw
