Polartec, a brand of Milliken & Company, Spartanburg, SC/USA, has formed a new partnership with Browzwear, a pioneer of 3D digital solutions for the fashion industry. Users will now be able to digitally design and create with performance fabric range from Polartec LLC, Andover, MA/USA. The fabric library will be available in the VStitcher 2021.2 Edition system with subsequent rollouts of new fabric technologies in future upgrades.
The cornerstone of Polartec is innovation, adaptation, and always looking into the future to find solutions that work better. The new partnership will allow designers using solutions from Browzwear International Ltd., Singapore, to preview and design with Polartec fabric technologies in a digital way that will provide advanced information and allow the user to accurately visualize the fabric's texture, drape, and movement in true-to-life 3D. In addition to the high-degree of accuracy that eliminates the need for garment samples, Browzwear’s true-to-life 3D renderings can be leveraged in the sales process, enabling data-driven manufacturing and reducing overproduction.
The first rollout will feature 14 different Polartec fabrics in unique color palettes ranging from next-to-skin technologies Delta, Power Wool, and Power Grid, to insulation technologies such as Polartec 200 series fleece, Alpha, High Loft, Thermal Pro, and Power Air. Polartec NeoShell rounds out the collection with weather protection.
