We exist to make digital technologies accessible throughout the supply chain for brands and manufacturers working towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

The challenge

Traditional models of product development rely on old (physical) ways of working, actioning fabric yardage, shipping samples from country to country. Time is wasted waiting for approvals and sign offs, while associated textile waste generated from fabrics and garments that never go into production may end up in landfill.

We can all agree that the model is broken.

A new era for fashion

Our story

While collaborating on design projects at the height of the pandemic in 2021 we realised that there was a pressing need for fast and inclusive digital product development services in the apparel industry.

As female founders continually inspired by women who make up the backbone of the apparel industry, we are committed to upskilling the supply chain so the fashion eco-system can move towards a more sustainable future.
