Your one-stop shop from concept design, pattern and sample making to full production. We do everything in-house and source locally.

Together we will make sure that your product looks and feels exactly as you envisioned it so you're market-ready.

Handbag Design Concept

We like to keep the production development in mind early on in the design process. After you've determined your idea and production requirements, we can help provide thoughtful technical advice from sourcing the right materials and hardware, to figuring out the right dimensions and proportions and refining your idea for a solid mock up to start the prototype process.

Prototypes and Custom

It's difficult to know exactly how your sketches will translate to physical form without a physical prototype. This is likely one of the most exciting moments in your business venture! During this process we can provide input based on our expertise and together can tweak a number of details to make a complete customized bag showcasing the highest quality for your final product. It takes open communication, trust, and a labor of love to get a working model of your product. Prototypes are a great (and crucial) part of the journey to get feedback on design and cost from potential buyers.

If you're ready to get in touch with us, send us your tech pack which should include measurements, materials, sketches, colors, trim, hardware, tooling, labels, tags, construction information and the number of units you intend to produce.

Email your design sketches or tech packs to info@albertshandbags.com and we will review and get back to you within 2 business days with a price quote for the sample which will include the original pattern set, labor, some materials such as thread, adhesives, fillers. Please provide all leather, fabric and any other materials necessary. We are happy to guide you with any of your questions and can provide a sourcing list to get all the necessary material. We can work with most hand sketches as well, here’s what we’re looking for in your email:

  • 1. Front, Back, Side and Interior views
  • 2. Detailed Dimensions and specifications
  • 3. Additional details, such as pockets, handles, straps etc.
  • 4. Any reference photos and/or detail that you would like to implement on your product
  • 5. Once you approve of the sample, we can provide you with production pricing.
