USA: Fashion For Good, SoftWear Automation join forces for sustainable fashion
Fashion for Good has collaborated with SoftWear Automation Inc., a USbased robotics company for sustainable fashion.
Both the companies have sewn the deal under the Fashion for Good’s Scaling Programme to encourage adoption of fully automated Sewbots for the sustainable production of apparel, footwear and home goods.
“The current apparel supply chain is one of the largest polluters to the environment, just second to oil. The benefits of working with Sewbots are reduced shipping costs, low inventory and less carbon dioxide emission,” said Palaniswamy Rajan, Chairman and CEO, SoftWear Automation.
Sewbots further promote manufacturing products ‘near to the point of consumption (SEWLOCAL™)’. Patented computerized vision and lightweight robotics form the main entities of Sewbot worklines. These entities work together to ease fabric movement and stitching operations in a much efficient manner as compared to humans.
The Fashion for Good is an initiative launched by C&A Foundation that brings together fashion and retail stakeholders to redefine sustainable fashion. It has chosen SoftWear Automation as the latter has an extensive network of technical members, scientists and industry stalwarts.
The partnership between the two depicts the commitment of both the companies to facilitate sustainable innovation within the apparel supply chain.
