One Off creations Made To Measure.

Made To Measure

(adj.): goods especially clothing made to order.

Custom made is born out of a contradiction. It concerns finding what you have been looking for, but have not yet found. There are many reasons as to why you might not be able to obtain what you seek, yet there is a solution to the dilema. 

This is known as custom, bespoke or made to measure. These concepts are slightly different, but it all boils down to this. What you need is a craftsman with the ability to turn your dream into reality. That is what real bespoke or custom manufacturing is all about, simply turning dreams into reality.

Made To Measure

How Should I Go About Getting a Custom Item?

Once you have chosen the craftsman you trust, who has the hand, style and abilty that you require, you will be ready to start the process of getting your special object made. Trust is key as you will not see what your buying until the project is well on its way to being completed. Trust the master craftsmen who is creating your order. After all you are paying for their expertise and experience so listen to their advice and ideas.

Made To Measure

Think Carefully !

Now you must transmit to the artisan what it is you want made. Think carefully about how you will use the product, as well as the style and size you need. Do you need something sturdy for everyday use, or something delicate for the occasional party evening? All this matters to the craftsman. The materials that will be employed are vital to the end result so ask about the options that are available. The better you communicate to your craftsman the easier the project will flow towards fulfilling your dreams and if all goes well, exceed your  expectations.

Made To Measure

A Negotiation

After having noted all your requirements I will then carefully think over the information I have been given and I will start to imagine the article that I believe you need and want. At this point we will enter into a negociation, an interchange of ideas where we will become inspired in the different options. Some of you will participate more, others will let the artisan do most of the thinking. It depends on the individuals, but my advice is to give the craftsman the space to shine.

Made To Measure

A Proposal

I will then make you a final proposal usually with pictures or sketches to help you visualise the final product. Hopefully we will have communicated well during the process and what I am offering is exactly what you had in mind and will adapt perfectly to your needs. This will also include the price for the work. Before work can start a payment of half the cost will be made, the other half on completion of the project before shipping or on collection in my atelier here in Barcelona.

Some questions, some answers

How long does it take to get one of your creations?

It depends on how much work I have and what type of article you are ordering. If it is a smaller article like belts and sandals, it should not take more than a couple of weeks. For big bags it might take closer to 3-6 months, I only make about 6 larger bags a year.

I will give a more precise estimate for each order, as they are placed relating to delivery dates.

How do I get the right size?
Do you do repairs?
How do I order a custom made article?
Are you the right guy for the job?

I hope I am, however sometimes a project is incompatible with my hand, style of work and/or personal tastes. I cannot make something that I don’t enjoy or like. I am not a wealthy man, but one luxury I can afford myself is to only accept projects that, I know, will inspire my enthusiasm and enable me to pour my love into the piece.

As a result I might not be the guy for your order, although I will try to drive the project in a direction where I will be able to feel confortable. All my things bear my signature and therefore I must be happy with what I sign.

Will you make me an exact replica of a Hermes bag at a bargain price?
How should I care for my products?

Orders, Purchase & Shipping

How can I pay?

If you came to the shop, you can pay by Credit Card and cash. For purchases online I favour PayPal, although bank transfer is also accepted. On occasion I have accepted bitcoin, although its volatility makes payment more complicated.

Do I need to pay a deposit?
How do you ship and how is shipping charged?
How can I cancel and/or return my order?

For internet purchases there is a 14 day cooling off period. Returns must be made within 14 days of receiving the product. Monogrammed and custom made objects cannot be returned.

In the heart of Barcelona I carefully craft hand made products for special people that want to stand out. Unique one offs made by myself. Only a handful of items produced every year for the fortunate few that get to own an 'af'.
