WHAT IS A TECH PACK?

If you are a fashion startup or a new designer looking to build your own shoes or leather goods collection, then a Tech Pack is the best way to convey your ideas to a manufacturer. Think of a Tech Pack (short for Technical Packet and also known as Specification Sheets) as a blueprint or a through illustration of your shoe designs and specifications. A Tech Pack generally explains your overall design aspects in a structured format to help a manufacturer turn your designs into a finished product. If you are looking for a time tested template, then you should download the Italian Shoe Factory Tech Pack guide & template, which includes a PDF guide along with an Excel spreadsheet with example Tech Packs that you can easily follow.

WHY IS A TECH PACK IMPORTANT?

A tech pack may include the shape, structure, materials to be used, grading, colorway, sizes, labels etc. A clear Tech Pack also helps in getting a quote for your prototype sample and production orders as per quantity requirement. Some of the items that a Tech Pack may include:

  • Details of materials to be used for each component of the shoe or bag
  • Color specifications and pantone number for each component
  • Blueprint for the sole design if necessary
  • Image references of hardware or any jewelry accessories
  • Placement and style of brand labels within the shoes or leather goods.
  • Box Packaging and branding details

SHOE LAST AND FORM OF THE SHOE

It is very important to share the shape of the shoe design by sharing image references from existing designs. This will help the manufacturer create the Shoe Last, or the solid form around which a shoe will be molded. By sending us a physical shoe you already have from another brand or sending reference pictures, it can help us understand the shape, volume, overall shoe last design and most importantly it will help us achieve the perfect fit of the shoe.

TECHNICAL DRAWING EXAMPLES

Worried about your sketching skills? Worry not, our in-house design team will help refine your sketches into technical drawings which will then be translated into 2D patterns which will help crate the mock-up shoe. Here are 3 examples of technical drawings to give you a basic understanding:

DO I ABSOLUTELY NEED A TECH PACK TO GET STARTED?

While a Tech Pack is not necessary to get started with the Italian Shoe Factory, it is highly recommended to download the Tech Pack guide & template to share a summary of your design vision. During the product development phase, the Italian Shoe Factory design team will then fill in the detailed specifications required for your design during the technical consultation stage.
