Microfactory for Fashion at the Munich Fabric Start
Trends change faster than ever and the clothing industry needs new technical solutions and matching business models that fits with consumers’ demands. For the Munich Fabric Start from 5 to 7 September 2017 Coldenhove and some other well-known companies have joined together to form a microfactory to provide the garment industry with an interlocking solution from design, to print, to cutting and confection to the sewn garment.
Digitization is the magic word that currently drives companies in almost all industries. In the clothing industry, the digitization of work steps is in full swing. It is now necessary to take advantage of the advantages not only in individual phases of product development, but also throughout the entire process chain, right down to the finished product.

You can design your own running shirt and at the end of the production process how your own unique personalized shirt in your hands .
