Continuing with our process series is Canadian label Want Les Essentiels. Founded by two twins who have years in the fashion game, the labels well known for their exquisitely made accessories that range from wallets to holdalls. Find out about their approach to production after the leap.
We believe in “good” Goods and from the drawing board to the finished product, every step has been researched and refined to create the exact accessory we envisioned. Most of the time, pieces are conceived in a very organic way. We often find inspiration during our daily commutes, and first sketch out the early ideas.
From there, we work with our production team to source the most modern, technically relevant materials and hardware to use to create the optimal finished product. The research and development stage takes quite some time, as we painstakingly go through many sampling attempts with our factories, until we are more than impressed with the “gold sample”. This sample is representative of the final production to be shipped to our vendors and ultimately purchased by our loyal customers.
