1. How to start my first Development with MCO - Exotic Leather
Manufacturing ?

We need the following information from you:

Develop your Idea

We need a product description from you based on your ideas. You can send a hand drawing, a reference product or a digital image for better visualisation. Ask for leather samples, which we will send you by mail for a fee. Together, we make sure right at the beginning that all important points are clarified in advance, before we start the process.

Create a Tech Pack

We come up with a professional design file for your custom leather product, commonly referred to as Tech Pack. This will include the designs, colors, and materials of the requested item. We compile a list of all the materials that are needed by our Factory to realize the final Product.Furthermore we will send you by airmail a color catalog of our available crocodile species and leather types

Craftmen Introduction

We create instructions for our craftmen the length, width and height for all parts of the desired item. Different sizes and designs require a lot of attention to detail, so that we satisfy our customers with our precision. An important step before making the first sample.

Sample it / Custom product starting from one piece

Now, based on the created data of your design, we can create your first sample. This is the ideal way to get a feel for the chosen designs and selected leather, to make any adjustments before going into bulk production. After the sample is created, it will be sent to you per Airmail.This is a crucial point before you move to bulk production of your design.

Bulk Order / Individual piece

After you decide on the perfect sample, we are ready to integrate the design into the production line at our leather factory for bulk / single piece production. We watch upon the custom leather production process to secure as well as manage it.

Quality Control before shipment

We inspect each bulk / single piece production batch at our leather manufacturing company for any possible issues. We want you to deliver a perfect leather product for your own brand or for the individual private customer  and we are helping you to achieve it.
