ASSEMBLE YOUR WAY TO SUSTAINABLE AND TIMELESS DESIGN.
Your fabric - Your product
Assemble works as building blocks for mills, independent businesses and retailers . We have curated the collection to highlight craftsmanship and sustainability whilst considering functional, classic designs with contemporary, clean aesthetics. This allows each fabric to put its stamp on the product. There is no minimum order and we can manufacture up to 500 units per run, per product.
1.DOES KALOPSIA PRINT FABRIC?
No, sadly not. Kalopsia is not a printer and does not have any print facilities in house. Our focus is fully on making the highest quality, ethical and sustainable products for our clients in the fabric you provide. The Assemble product range is also suitable for a wide variety of materials as well as digitally printed fabrics including;
Hand and industrial weaving
Hand and machine knitting
Screen printed fabrics
Check out our clients page to see examples of the range of materials we have worked with in the past.
2.WHAT ARE ASSEMBLE PRODUCTS?
Assemble products are product templates that can be ordered in (almost) any fabric provided by you. There are currently two catalogues to choose from - Accessories and Apparel. Both catalogues contain a range of classic product shapes. For each product You can pick the finishing, linings, zips, sizes etc, depending on your preferences. Fabric requirements can be found on the product pages and are also available to download as a PDF from the Fabric Requirements page.
3.HOW TO ORDER?
There are two ways to order Assemble products. The quickest and easiest way is through the Kalopsia website. Simply enter the options you would like for your products, along with the number of units you require. Then simply place the order just as you would with any other online store. Discounts and postage will be worked out for you automatically and will be displayed as totals once the order is filled out on the pages shown below.
Alternatively, if you have a large or complex order you can request a line sheet from the Kalopsia team or download one from the Fabric requirement page. Line sheets should be filled out with the product details you require, using the same information requested on the online form. Additional information can be added about fabric variations and any other details.
4.What do I need to provideD?
The key item you will need to provide us with is your fabric. The fabric you provide should be suitable for the products you have requested and reflect the fabric details you have entered on the online order or line sheet. It is your responsibility to provide the correct amount of fabric for your order and to ensure that the fabric is of a suitable quality. Fabric that is not provided correctly may be returned to you and your order may also be cancelled.
4.1 Zips and linings
If you have chosen to provide your own zips and/or linings these need to be sent along with your fabric. We would suggest where possible, to use the zips provided by Kalopsia. Zip tape length may vary depending on the brand and teeth size and this can affect fabric allowances and the over-all finish of the product. Please ask a member of staff if you are unsure whether your zips are suitable.
All Assemble pricing is quoted to include the stitching in of branding and care labels. If you would like these to be included in your products please send these with your fabric. Brand and care labels should be provided in a larger number than the amount of products ordered incase of damage or loss and all remaining labels will be sent back to you with your order.
Kalopsia cannot print or weave labels in-house and cannot arrange for the labels to be manufactured on your behalf. If you are looking to have labels made we would suggest speaking to - GB LABELS who manufacture the labels in the UK also featured on the Assemble demo products.
