Polartec, a Milliken & Company brand, and premium creator of innovative and sustainable textile solutions, has announced a new partnership with Browzwear, a pioneer of 3D digital solutions for the fashion industry. A first for the brand, users will now be able to digitally design and create with Polartec’s performance fabric range. The fabric library will be available in the VStitcher 2021.2 Edition on October 12, 2021, with subsequent rollouts of new fabric technologies in future upgrades.
The new partnership will allow designers using Browzwear 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 fourteen different Polartec fabrics in unique color palettes ranging from next-to-skin technologies to insulation technologies. The U3M files of Polartec fabric technologies will be available to download on Polartec.com for use on other digital design platforms as well.
