OECD: Sector significant

Key Resources For A Responsible Supply Chain
by Yvonne Heinen-Foudeh

Apparel represents one of the largest consumer goods sectors in the world. And one with a far too large carbon footprint, track records as an employer and supporter of social and ethical standards which gives rise to a wide range of criticism. And precisely because of the segment‘s role as an important economic driving force the implementation, monitoring and compliance of responsible supply chains is paramount.

We did it!

We have kicked off the first IACDE International 3D Summit!

The 3D Summit Team would like to reach out to all International IACDE members, external participants, Sponsors and Collaborators with a big Thank you!

Without your participation and time creating the 3D assignments for all the Break out rooms this event would never have taken place. Thanks also for all the great feedback and cheering along the way!

A special thank you to Sophie-Therese Lupas, STUDIO LUPAS GbR for your excellent presentation “Suit details in CLO3D”  where she teached how to polish a suit simulation, as well as your participation in co-hosting one of the Breakout rooms.

Thanks Bradford Bird, The Fabricant for your last minute jump-in for Kerry Murphy, Founder of The Fabricant. Brad gave us a very interesting insight in how they produce digital fashion for fashion brands, and more excitingly how they're selling digital fashion as NFTs for over two years already.

We would like to share one of the assignments made by R. Jeffery Diduch with the amazing work with the IACDE logo on the buttons and stoppers. Enjoy!

Looking forward seeing you in half a year for the follow up 3D Summit!

Freudenberg Performance Materials launches online shop for interlinings and paddings

As the first market player in Europe, the Apparel Business Unit launches an online shop with a comprehensive range of interlinings, tapes, canvas and preformed materials, linings and comfortemp® thermal insulation for the apparel industry.

2,000 different products available from the online range

Customers can choose from more than 2,000 different products ranging from bonding solutions up to the recycling range. A clear structure by groups makes finding the right product easier: ladies’ and men’s wear, sportswear, outdoor and work clothes, shirts, jeans and leather as well as special ranges for the production of accessories, for appliqués or embroidery.

Access with and without registration

In addition to their customer account for address and purchase order management, registered users have full access to detailed product information as well as technical data sheets in PDF format available for download. Individually selected preferred delivery dates or a wish list round off the online experience. But the online shop is also available without login – in catalogue format for full product search and information across the entire range. An application-oriented menu structure and detailed filter functions help customers during their search and guide them on their way to the selection of the desired product. Pictures with zoom function show the thickness, structure, strength and drape of the product and how it can be fused. The contact form allows customers to send a request for quotation – as long as they do not have their own access.

The online shop can be reached at https://shop.freudenberg-apparel.com
