    Did you know anything about textiles before start to ugmonk?

    I would like to know because, sometimes i catch a great idea but i will give up because i am not expert in that industry. I am just web designer, i affraid to create somethings in real world.

      Exactly what I would like to know as well :)

      I dig bags. I wish I could get into the business of making and selling bags at some point in the future. Jeff's post about Ugmonk's Messenger Bags was a turn on for me! :P After reading it, I went out, bought some materials and started making the bag of my dreams. But, it ended with just that one bag.

      I knew almost nothing about textiles before I started Ugmonk. I had taken one basic screen printing class college but knew very little about the actual production process and garment industry.

      Producing physical products is VERY different from digital design. Though something can look great on screen, it may not translate well to a physical product. Everything from scale to colors to printing techniques to materials needs to be carefully considered. Getting physical proofs of whatever you are producing is vital to understand each of these details.

      And anything beyond simple screenprinted items gets exponentially more complicated. I share lots more details in this post: Messenger Bag Process: From Sketch to Finished Product
