Textile Swatch Development
All Roads Studio offers freelance textile swatch development for private label development. You may know the studio's textile work from our successful, and often emulated, licensing partnership with Anthropologie, which has grown over the past four years and counting.
How To Work With Us
Is your design or buying team looking for original textile swatches to develop into product? Do you need a tangible swatch to send to your factory for reference? You have a textile concept you would like to design into, and you prefer not to copy saturated concepts from Pinterest or mood boards.
We offer swatch development and consulting services, á la carte per idea or by season. The techniques we use can be considered by end use price point and factory capabilities.

Why Work With Us
You are aware of the ongoing trends in textiles, but do not have the time or internal work force to create original swatches to develop into. Your factories/vendors show you new ideas or techniques, but you are not sure if they are original ideas, or concepts copied from the internet. You want to have representation of the current textile trends, but you strive to keep your viewpoint original.
Our scope does not include print design, repeats or patterns etc.
Our swatch development does not include the All Roads Design aesthetic licensed to Anthropologie. We are happy to work with clients to create a new version that is reflective of client's brand and aesthetic, while not producing 'copy cat' designs.
While the studio is conscientious about what is possible for mass production, All Road studio cannot guarantee that your factory will be able to successfully execute any techniques.
Information shared between parties will be kept confidential.
All designs will be proprietary to the client.
Step One: Identify the textile ideas you would like to develop.
Step Two: Compile inspiration for concept. Inspirational images, color palettes, textures, end use.
Step Three: Provide direction to our studio, we will work with you to create the textile swatches you need to send to your factory to reference.
Step Four: Our studio will work with you in order to select correct colors, materials and techniques. All will be approved before proceeding.
Step Five: Original swatch with yarn references and content information will be sent to you, ready for you to create CADs or designs to send to your factory for development.
We also offer consulting services, if you need outside help to identify textile trends, colors and concepts.
