About

We’re ready to handle the global challenges affecting our industry today because we’ve been preparing for 20+ years

Why Team up with Sewing Incubator?

If you are here, it’s probably because you are looking for a team that you can count on to make your direct to consumer product a reality.

Many companies offer product development and can manufacture good products, but very few can deliver consistent results to emerging and established direct to consumer brands alike

What makes Sewing Incubator Different?

Supportive

Our “brutally honest” approach is not for everyone, but your can always count on our support to navigate challenges, instead of giving you a false sense of security

The knowledge we’ve gained from previous mistakes (we are human too!) gives you the advantage to overcome challenges that may arise regardless of how new to the industry you are

You are empowered to remain in control of your business and we encourage you to take the time to understand what it takes to establish a solid product strategy

Digital DNA Built for Flexibility

Sewing Incubator started as one of the first online CAD pattern service providers in the mid 90's with the specific purpose of working with some of the earliest direct to consumer brands selling online

We recognize that in order to meet the challenges facing our industry today, many clients who are new to manufacture need tools and additional guidance that other companies may not be prepared to undertake

Our proprietary Project Dashboard gives you access to follow the process of every product developed or manufactured by Sewing Incubator, so you can focus on growing your business instead of managing email

Global Reach for Local Business

Innovative products may sometimes require global collaboration, which requires understanding the impact of local and international factors that may affect the success of your product brand.

Some members of our team have experience working with fortune 500 brands, while others prefer the intimacy of focusing on small businesses or emerging start up brands

We work with brands all over the world in English or Español from our offices in UK and headquarters in USA

Sustainable

Sustainable practices have been part of our business before most of the industry adopted it as a trendy keyword

Reducing paper use for pattern making, grading and marking with CAD/CAM since 1997 was the first of our sustainability efforts followed by running a paperless office since 2001

Our process includes measures to ensure that materials are purchased only as needed and utilized efficiently

Selling to Government

Our close knit network of  material sources provide us with a level of flexibility to fulfill Government orders that other companies may find difficult to commit to

Keeping close relationships with local suppliers means we have reduced exposure to delays caused by global supply channels, because we focus on sourcing from in-stock options that are readily available

The Team

We are a team of professionals with diverse industry backgrounds sharing our collective decades of wisdom and experience with entrepreneurs all over the world
