Purpose Driven Brands
Are focused on making a meaningful difference in the market by aligning their activities with a broader purpose than financial gain.
Since 2012, JLD-Studios has been supporting small and emerging brands in a variety of product segments.
They have developed a Function First process for taking brands from concept to production, and beyond.
Over the years they've applied their design and manufacturing expertise on swimwear, masks, activewear, and A LOT of leggings.
For 2024 our founder & director, Jenn Diana, has decided to niche down further. Inspired by some rewarding experiences developing products for wearable tech and medical adjacent industries, combined with a little business burnout, she has refocused the studio's efforts into more purpose drive products.
JLD has unleashed their problem solving expertise onto Niche Utility Products. They take particular delight in collaborating with brands that bring a unique perspective and carve out their own niche in the market. Their process puts product function at the forefront, moves swiftly requiring brand engagement, and encourages playful innovation.
How does it work?
From the very beginning, they will build upon your brand's DNA while eliminating wasteful and unnecessary elements. JLD understands that it might be challenging, but they ask you to momentarily set aside the allure of a beautiful design. Instead, focus on the core functionality of your product. This is the aspect they will develop and test through a proven iterative process, which emphasizes function first.
Develop, Test, Refine, Thrive
Through diligent development and testing, products are built to meet the crucial FUNCTION FIRST criteria. Once this is achieved, they will proceed to refine the design, features, and construction techniques to ensure market viability. This approach enables swift movement from concept to production, providing immediate market feedback and a roadmap for continuous improvement. Creating a product and environment designed to thrive.
Ready to collaborate with JLD and create sewn products that excel in both functionality and visual appeal?
JLD-Studios was founded based on my personal experience in the fashion industry. Relocating from New York to Oregon, I began freelancing, which soon grew into a small business focused on print and apparel design. Witnessing the struggles of our clients in production, with manufacturers dismissing start-ups or imposing unattainable minimums, I decided to address the challenge directly. Thus, our factory side was born.
Today, we continue to support small and emerging brands while partnering with larger ones. Our mission is to create an environment that simplifies fashion accessibility transparently. At JLD-Studios, we merge design and manufacturing expertise to empower brands and bring their visions to life. Driven by our passion to make a difference in the industry, we offer reliable solutions for our clients.
