How do we sew down jackets?
Polish goose down is appreciate throughout the world. In combination with the best quality materials it allows us to create perfect down jackets. Depending on the purpose and model, our jackets will ensure you optimal temperature not only during severe winter, but also during moderate autumn and spring temperatures. Goose down also has excellent breathing properties. In the jackets produced by us, we only use down, and not feathers. Each batch of down, we use, has appropriate quality certificates.
Sewing jackets is our passion, see the stages of creating Manblu jackets. In total there are twelve steps – however for us the last one is most important – your first impression when you try it on!
Step one - measuring
When you send us your measurements, our tailors must accurately verify whether they do not deviate from the standards too much. If we have any doubts, we will contact you.
Step two – drawing and modeling
Then, we have to reproduce the desired pattern on the sewing forms – here each jacket will be different. Based on your measurements and guidelines a specific jacket model is created.
Step three – cutting material
Based on previously prepared materials, we can start creating patterns for cutting, and then cut. It is one of the most important steps – the experience of our tailors is essential here.
Step four – drawing chambers
Having materials ready and cut, we can start drawing pillows on all cut parts. We fill such pillows with down.
Step five – assembling accessories

Each previously prepared pillow is sewn initially and filled manually with down – here diligence and accuracy are essential. Your jacket takes not only shape, but also individual character.
Step eight – sewing the chambers
Having finished filling the pillows with down, we can start sewing the chambers precisely verifying the infill. We also pay special attention to have down arranged evenly.
Step nine – combining elements
We complete tailoring works and the tailor combines all the elements into one whole. Your jacket takes final shape. At the end we take care of functional details – zippers and pockets. The zippers used by us are manufactured by YKK – a trusted partner.
Step ten – final spreading
Now only care and giving final shape to your jacket are left. Professionally we call it “spreading”. We can see how your jackets presents itself – you still have to be patient.
