At Bags of Love, we love to build relationships with the tutors and students studying fashion, textiles and design. There is so much we can do for students. From a substantial student discount to opportunities to work with us and gain experience during the holidays. We really do see these talented young designers as the future of our industry.
That’s why we invited Fashion Design and Textiles and Surface Design students from Bucks New University and their tutors to learn more about fabric printing.
Meeting the team and the products
Course Leader Rosie Cate and her 3rd year students were already fans of ours. Now she wanted the opportunity for her first years to get to know us too. 17 students visited the Bags of Love studio this week, where they were met by our Director Chris. After giving the students an overview of our print on demand fabric printing service and our ever growing range of customised products, the students and Rosie were taken on a tour of our facilities.
Everything at Bags of Love takes place under one roof. Therefore, the students got a well rounded view of how an order comes in, is printed, cut and produced.
They loved visiting the factory and seeing our printers in action. But also the amazing collection of huge fabric rolls! They loved going up to the sewing department and seeing how our customised clothing and soft furnishings are made. In particular, our customised bomber jacket caught their eye. By the end of the tour, they were all asking to be shown how to use our online design interface.
A lot of students were keen to get involved with us with our internship programme. However, also our store platform caught their interest.
Do you want to come around for a tour?
If you are a student or a tutor and would like to visit us at our North West London premise and see how fabric printing works, then please get in touch.
