Fashion for Good, a global initiative, and SoftWear Automation, an Atlanta-based robotic sewing company, will be collaborating through Fashion for Good’s Scaling Programme to facilitate change that is accessible, affordable and attractive for all.
SoftWear and Fashion for Good will work together to encourage the widespread use of fully automated Sewbot worklines for T-shirts and apparel, footwear and home goods. Sewbot worklines combine patented computer vision with light weight robotics to move fabric to and through the needle more efficiently than a human operator.
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.
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.
