I find that sometimes there is some confusion between the terms ‘bespoke’ and ‘made to measure’.

The terms are borrowed from the textile industry. They were originally about the choices faced when having a suit made. “Made to measure” means that it is made to pre-set patterns, modified to fit your requirements, whereas ‘bespoke’ means that there is no set pattern.

                                                                        A bespoke piece is not just “made to measure”. 
                                                                        It does not simply fit a physical space - it is designed

                                                                    It’s about creating something that is as unique as you.
