With all great ideas, first there must be a framework of innovation that will keep you focused and on track. A strong framework means beginning with a solid foundation.
Most of us have heard the phrase “thoughts are things” or “if you can conceive and believe, you can achieve”. These are important aspects in the development process whether you are creating a product, building a business or building a relationship.
What we think about and what we focus on can actually be integrated into our lives. What our mind conceives could be the next great idea. Searching and listening for clues that direct you toward your product idea need not be a daunting task.
Sewn product design and development is a very visual, tactile, and creative process that allows an individual to pursue their passion and express their ideas through various forms of medium; the combination of textiles, trims, and styles come together to create a pleasing and functional item.
Sewn products extend into many industries; just pick an industry and expand your thinking. There are sewn products throughout these industries: automotive, recreational, leisure, medical, dental, toys, boating, sports, photography, entertainment, and hundreds of other areas where there may be a need to fill.
Opportunities for sewn product ideas are all around us and only need some focused observation to unveil new possibilities. The quote “Necessity is the mother of invention” can be applied to any industry and it usually born out of a need that was not visible to most people.
Even technology has birthed an endless stream of ideas for sewn products; laptop cases, mouse pads, computer and keyboard dust covers to name a few. Have you been frustrated that someone hasn’t created a product you really need? If you can articulate your idea into a viable product, then why don’t you start developing it now?
