Idee Partners believes in a business strategy focused on investments in R&D and the use of new technologies to stand at the forefront of the leather goods market.
Special attention is given to collaborator training, innovation and R&D, with a focus on the Production Development phase, the flagship of Idee Partners’ system.
Creativity and Pattern-making are integrated with the best and new technologies: an example is the use of CAD Pattern-making & Printing systems and the most advanced simulation programs that help to optimize timing and costs.
Product Development is the flagship of Idee Partners’ system: once the creative direction is defined or communicated by the customer, all the necessary technical steps are managed in-house to get to the final prototypes and samples.
All the development phases are managed by in-house highly specialized Pattern-making Department and Sample Rooms, adding additional external partners to provide, if needed, the requested capacity, thanks to the sharing of the same CAD pattern-making system.
Idee Partners can either integrate and assist designers coming directly from the customers or provide design as one of its services, and is able to generate a wide variety of concepts and ideas from the very first meetings with customers, shaping first product ideas and transforming them into physical/rendered products.
