Study & technical office in leather goods creation

Prototypage de votre maroquinerie

Development & prototyping of your leather goods

The idea becomes a prototype with a complete technical file ready to go into production.

Your leather goods creation project is monitored by a project manager. Meetings punctuate the collaboration to guarantee you a result. No interpretations, we put our clients at the heart of the creative and technical process. We bring your ideas to life.

How does it work ?

Step 1 Worshop appointment development of models & material sourcing (collaborative work with the customer) We define for each model the assemblies, techniques and stylistic details (optimization of the manufacturing cost) We identify for each component the appropriate suppliers in terms of quality / price (optimization of material costs) We provide you with tools to manage your material sourcing more fluidly (also useful for production)

Step 2 Realization of a model & technical adjustments (managed by Féoni) Step 3 Prototypes in final materials & first costing for production (managed by Féoni) Average duration of a project: From collaborative appointment to delivery of the prototype: <1 month

Our forces :

OUR 360 ° EXPERTISE: We work with all materials & master a wide range of leatherwork techniques. We have been working for several years with manufacturers of all sizes in Europe with complementary know-how. This gives us a broad view of what is done in leather goods. We are also able to intervene in the manufacturing process to solve technical problems.

OUR CSR POLICY: We promote collaboration with our manufacturing partners to use existing resources and the use of 3D modeling in the creation of leather goods to limit the waste of resources and save time at the prototyping stage.

Customer testimonials "To all the Féoni team, a big thank you for all the beautiful pieces made for us for this SS19 show. It was a real pleasure to work together! " - Julie, fashion brand product manager “A big thank you for your work, it was a pleasure to collaborate with you. I am delighted with the result. "- Marie, designer bag

Frequently asked questions when embarking on the creation of leather goods

You want to know more about our services and how we work. We answer the questions that are often asked:

What is a design and technical office in leather goods?

The office of 'study and technique in the creation of mastery leather goods & nbsp; all the assemblies, techniques of the sector as well as the material cost ratio  manufacturing. The objective is to include, from the stage of the creation of the leather goods, the appropriate industrialization processes depending on the project. It is also a matter of putting the design into perspective from the start of the project with the various technical and material constraints to achieve a consistent production cost.

How to optimize my development budget & prototyping?

Prototyping is measured by the time spent and is carried out in semi-artisanal conditions. This implies that the optimization of the manufacturing process without the quantity to be produced behind is not possible at this stage. A prototype on its own will always have a higher cost than a prototype included in a production (even a small one).  Developing a prototype on its own is ideal for testing the market without committing to quantities. & nbsp; With Féonilab the prototype is delivered with all the useful elements to launch a production.

The 3D modeling of a prototype makes it possible to make duplicates at a lower cost and to test them in pre-order before to go into production.

Should I run & production?

If you are launching a collection of leather goods for the first time, it depends both on your financial means and on the number of orders you are able to generate in the short term for a first production. It is better to have order guarantees (a backlog of existing customers or a validated crowdfunding campaign) than sales hypotheses. On the other hand, the first productions often hold a lot of surprises that are difficult to circumvent without having the expertise in the trade. (misinterpretation of the request, feasibility problem among others, problem of time etc.) Pre-ordering is a good solution so as not to have to invest in a stock. & nbsp; The ideal is to have a firm order of min & nbsp; 50 pieces for bags and more than 100 pieces for small leather goods with a sales perspective over 6 months or even over the year. Just like you need to make your project viable, the manufacturer also needs a viable project to function properly.

Do you only work with leather?

It has been a long time since leather goods moved away from its etymology (morocco & gt; goat leather). Prototypists and leatherworkers have been working with alternative materials such as textiles since the start of the marketing of leather goods. The essence of the design office is to master the assemblies and techniques while adapting to the material. Since our beginnings, we have been working with vegetable fibers, technical materials, recycled materials and of course leather. This gives us a precise expertise of what is possible to do with the constraints of each of its materials.

Do you know how to work with wallets, belts?

Yes, we develop different types of product ranging from bags, through small leather goods (companions, wallets or others), and accessories (belts, cases or others). We also respond to specific requests. The complementarity of our team allows us this openness.

Can I use my materials?

Although we provide our network of manufacturers. We work with suppliers validated by the customer. Our network of suppliers allows you to challenge yours if necessary.
