Hi Everyone,
I'm currently working for a case and bag company and we need some one that can translate our softgoods concepts accurately into a sample prototype. Does anyone know here of a capable soft good and bag prototyper here in the US?

Thank you For your help!

Hi
I'll second that, I've been looking for a prototype bag manufacturer her in the UK. Only one I've found is:

not sure they can do very high quality stuff though.

A luggage repair shop will make prototypes.

I get prototypes from a company that sews industrial filters.

All you need is a seamstress.

Trash Bags in Minneapolis makes custom bags out of almost anything. Might be worth asking.

Cool tip about the luggage shop, never thought of it. Along those lines, an awning/banner shop might be of help, too.

At some companies I have worked at we have used these guys out of Montana. They are fantastic at patterning and first protos. http://www.wookey.net/
