Resonance Companies has announced a key milestone in driving the return of domestic textile manufacturing — the opening of the company’s first stateside sew production facility in New York City. The 300 square-foot facility is housed at Pier 59 in Chelsea Piers, adjacent to Resonance’s headquarters. Resonance has built the first creation-to-customer-closet platform for sustainable fashion; the company uses digital printing on organic and environmentally certified fabrics as part of a fully automated process to design, sell, and make garments in real time, on demand, sustainably anywhere in the world.
The new facility is comprised of 12 sewing stations with the ability to make hundreds of garments per week supported by Resonance’s proprietary technology. The team plans to hire additional team members to run the NYC facility as well as several others that are planned in the coming months.
Resonance is committed to bringing components of garment manufacturing back to NYC, a city whose thriving textile manufacturing industry was driven overseas in search of lower production costs. The company is also working to create a network of U.S.-based sew production firms utilizing the Resonance platform to renew stateside manufacturing across the country.
