Lets be honest, you are one of the three below.
Yes this is fairly broad with some overlap, but we know YOU and we know YOUR pains…
1. YOU HAVE AN IDEA
You would like to get to market, or at the very least test it out. But despite everyones Grandma being able to sew, it is hard to find someone able to work with industrial fabric and machines, let alone relate your design intent into a functional product. You’ve perhaps tried sourcing suppliers yourself but Alibaba is failing you, leaving you feel dejected.
Sound familiar? Learn how we can help.
2.YOU ARE A DESIGNER
(or entrepreneur/maker and want to #DIYitbaby, and are not afraid to bootstrap your idea)
But you know you need to learn from someone who has done it before – it’s smart right? – as it will save you a tonne of time and cash, helping propel you forward faster. If this is you, we have exclusive training compiled from years of experience. Everything from how to’s on Social Media, Customer Service, to Photography and Website Creation. We’ve done it. We’ve been there.
Learn from us!
Makers Training Coming SOON!
3. YOU HEART BOGEAR
(you are a long time BOGEAR supporter)
You’ve been with us since inception and want to see what we’ve been up to, where we are going, what we are doing, and perhaps grab some swag along the way.
Thanks for sticking with us mate, you are the easiest to please.
SHOP OPENING SOON! (Grab Swag Here)
So why is this important? Well we can help… Honest. We know your pain and frustration, and it is based on years of pain, frustration and first hand experience of our own. We’ve been where you are going, we’ve learnt, and we are ready to share.
SIDE NOTE / ABOUT US:
If you don’t fall into the groups above, and instead are coming here to research our back story this is what we tell those who wear suits and ties (you know, those ones who need things to be official)…
BOgear was founded in 2008, and specialises in the Design, Development and Manufacture of sewn product goods. We have our own in-house branded product line, as well as help clients commercially design, develop and manufacture their own products, lines or brands using our international manufacturing partners. We have an Australian Design Studio containing numerous machines, tools and materials to in-house prototype, sample, iterate, modify and design. We can send production ready samples to our international manufacturing partners. Normally design firms only provide sketches to their manufacturing partners, so this unique difference helps our clients test and iterate their designs locally, and subsequently launch faster than normal with less issues through miscommunication across language barriers.
Internally, our own product line specialises in backpacks, messenger bags, cycling gear, and general load carriage equipment. Our external clients are diverse, ranging from four wheel drive product, fitness and exercise products, through to travel specialty items. We are proud to have worked with clients who are leaders in their own industries such as MAXTRAX, Fly LegsUp, EzyDog, CrankIt Suspension Training, TechShot Cricket, Raptor Racks, Pelleres, Fused Goods, GrandFinal Technologies, 4SHAW, High Range Outdoors, and CMD design.
BOgear’s founder and design director, Dave Bell, has over a decade of experience specialising in Sewn Product. He is also on the sewing machines, sampling, testing and prototyping, while providing the important conduit between client and our international development and manufacturing partners.
