Our Team


Our mission is to help designers access a sustainable manufacturing supply chain globally.


Design Make Produce was founded in 2015. We recognised that many new designers struggle to make it to market due the challenges faced in accessing the right makers and sourcing the right textiles. With our expertise, we want to help anyone with an idea bring it to life. Our team has decades of experience in the fashion industry ranging from big fashion houses to small startups. Come meet us, we'd love to hear from you.
