SoftWear Automation to collaborate with Fashion for Good

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-08-16 16:15:00 – New York

An Atlanta-based robotic sewing company, SoftWear Automation will be collaborating with Fashion for Good, a global initiative through Fashion for Good’s Scaling Programme to facilitate change that is accessible, affordable and attractive for all. They will work together to encourage the widespread use of fully automated Sewbot worklines for T-shirts and apparel, footwear and home goods.

Katrin Ley, Managing Director of Fashion for Good said that together with their partners, they aim to use innovation to move towards a world in which they take, make and remake, rather than take, make and waste. They are excited to welcome SoftWear Automation into their Scaling Programme and they look forward to collaborating with them to make their revolutionary Sewbot worklines technology mainstream.

Fashion for Good, an initiative launched with an initial grant by founding partner C&A Foundation, convenes brands, producers, retailers, suppliers, non-profit organisations, innovators and funders, united in their shared ambition to reimagine the way fashion is designed, made, worn and reused.

Therefore, Fashion for Good hand-selected SoftWear Automation from an extensive list of innovators. As a Scaling Programme participant, SoftWear gains access to a network of technologists, scientists and industry experts, enabling it to accelerate and expand the adoption of its revolutionary Sewbot worklines.

Palaniswamy Rajan, SoftWear Automation Chairman and CEO said that their Sewbots bring manufacturing closer to the consumer, reducing shipping, inventory and carbon dioxide. The current apparel supply chain is one of the largest polluters second to oil and is only held in place through the exploitation of low-cost labour.

SoftWear Automation’s Sewbot worklines combine patented computer vision with light weight robotics to move fabric to and through the needle more efficiently than a human operator. This industry-leading technology allows manufacturers to Sewlocal, geographically shortening the distance between the manufacturer and consumer, while creating higher quality products.
