Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

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.
