Cary, North Carolina
Cotton Incorporated’s CottonWorks™, a resource for textile professionals, launches 3D downloadable digital files, taking cotton apparel design to the next level. The FABRICAST™ collection offers designers and product developers working with two popular design programs access to inspirational and inventive cotton and cotton-rich fabrics for the collaborative design process.
The work-at-home environment, this year, propelled many companies to search for more digital solutions in all aspects of the business including the already emerging 3D design programs.
“3D technology offers a great solution for digital design, fit, merchandising, and marketing. When you connect that digitally with sourcing and manufacturing, we have a winning combination for the apparel industry,” says Krista Schreiber, a veteran industry designer and digital supply chain consultant.
FABRICAST™ knit and woven fabrics provide new ideas and inspiration for design and development teams. The initial digital offerings showcase trending cotton fabrics with a variety of constructions to illustrate a core selection of pile, texture and drape.
“The digital cotton fabric files cover a wide range,” explains Mark Messura, senior vice president of global supply chain marketing for Cotton Incorporated. “From fleece and herringbone to jacquards, denim, sherpa, and French terry fabrics, they are all there digitally on CottonWorks™ and ready for download. Every month we will be making new collections of digital cotton fabrics available to designers. It’s part of the continuing innovation for cotton.”
Cotton digital fabric files can be downloaded for CLO and Browzwear programs at cottonworks.com, the cotton resource for textile professionals. CottonWorks™ is a go-to textile tool for discovering what’s possible with cotton. From fiber and manufacturing education to sustainability facts to fabric inspiration and trend forecasting, cottonworks.com has the resources the industry needs to stay in motion.
