“Phenomenal Team and Price for Designers
I had an idea for an innovative bag design that was stuck on paper for over a year. Fortunately I met Laura and her team at Clutch Made who regularly transfer dreams into reality. If you're seeking a factory that can operate efficiently, under short time frames at a reasonable market cost, please look no further than Clutch Made for a truly professional design experience.”
“Incredibly Helpful and Responsive
I've never worked with American factories and needed some help. Clutch is extremely responsive and willing to work with you throughout every step of the production process, whether you're a total beginner or a seasoned veteran. Clutch is phenomenal.”
I am in the very beginning phase of starting my line. In searching for factories, it was important to me that the response time be timely as it's a reflection, to me, of how easy or difficult it could possibly be to work with certain people. Clutch responded immediately to every message I sent in a very professional and personable way. In the end, my designs weren't actually something they could accommodate, but they were so very helpful along the way. They even referred me to another factory that could possibly help me. I don't expect companies to perform miracles by any means or complete production "yesterday", but I would expect someone to respond quickly and let me know what to expect throughout production. I believe anyone could expect nothing but the best with Clutch in regards to communication. I'm so thankful for their time and help!!!!”
Laura runs a fantastic company....prompt communication, professional service, and amazingly fast turnaround times.
I received my sample in less than 3 days after sending her all of the hardware and materials. That's simply unheard of in this industry! The quality is superb. I definitely recommend!”
“I don’t mind paying more since it’s in New York.
I just want to work with someone I can connect face to face with and build a team. Appreciate your help. Your site looks amazing.”
On Receipt of First Sample:
“Just got it! Love it and love your notes to go with it. So excited and we are absolutely close and headed in right direction. I am thrilled and will take some time and send comments/ideas over soon. Thank you so much for helping me bring an idea to life.”
“I love my bag !! It is everything I envisioned it to be . The quality is great, the chain belt is durable , and the leather is so smooth. Can we discuss moving forward and what the next steps are?”

My new sample is just what I asked for; thank you.”

“Laura, I truly enjoyed meeting with you last night! Your down-to- earth disposition made it easy for me to express myself. I recognize that this is novel in the "industry," and I am thrilled that I found you! I felt that you were on the same page as me regarding my business goals, and that you "got me," in terms of my style. I felt sincere interpersonal support from you, as an individual and an entrepreneur.
The Clutch Made tagline- "The factory you can talk to," is fitting!”

On Production Management
“We can't be happier with the way you stand behind your products. The difference between Clutch and “the competition” has been - well, let's be honest - you're in different leagues. You've been a breath of fresh air.”
