This is a new chapter in life of MyCuddle, as I have started collaborating with two companies in Milan, which asked me to design and manufacture customized accessories. It was a huge surprise for me – and it still is – as I didn’t plan it at all! In this post I would like to write something more about one of this companies – Camillatex.
Some time ago I was trying to find in Milan a normal shop where I could buy some samples of organic cotton (usually I buy organic materials on-line). Finally, I have found one, Camillatex, but when I arrived in one of their shops, I discovered the sad truth….Camillatex is not just a normal shop, as it is the producer of cotton and linen fabrics, which are used by other companies to sew bedsheets….Hence, I couldn’t buy just “a small sample”, as the minimum quantity to buy is 7 meters…Well, after a really nice conversation with the person who works there, during which I explained who I am and why I need organic fabric, I left my business card “just in case” and…I left the shop. Few days later I have received a phone call, which really surprised me, as I have already forgotten my visit at Camillatex. I was told, that they checked my website and that they have get an idea, so we should meet and talk….After the first conversation about our collaboration, I understood immediately, thatn what I can proposed Camillatex is the personalized collection of home decor accessories made from their fabrics – high quality cotton and linen. After some time first prototypes were ready. I designed two collections – “rustic home decor” collection and a classic “nursery decor” collection. The client finally has chosen “rustic home decor” collection and two designs from “nursery decor” collection, but still I have a lots of work to do, as I have to design some new products, therefore, I assume that final products will be ready in two weeks.
All items for Camillatex are designed and hand-made by me, including embroidering, of course. I’m really satisfied with the final result, but as a perfectionist, I know that I have to correct some details to be fully proud from the work I have done.
Now I’m ready to show you some photos of products which I have presented to Camillatex one week ago. As you know, they are prototypes, which means that they are not perfect, but at least you can see different kinds of styles of designing, which MyCuddle can offer to its clients.
From now, there is a new service in the offer of MyCuddle – “designing customized items/accessories”!
