Chargeurs*PCC Fashion Technologies, the world’s largest apparel interlinings manufacturer, has partnered with Custom Wrkshop, an on-demand platform for customisation and made-to-order apparel, shoes and accessories.
Under the agreement, Chargeurs*PCC will become the exclusive supplier of sustainable interlinings and inner components to Custom Wrkshop’s network of customers and represent Custom Wrkshop as a technology offering to its own global network of more than 6,000 customers and partners.
Custom Wrkshop’s digitisation tools enable consumers to customise garments and receive them directly from manufacturers in about two weeks.
By partnering with Custom Wrkshop, Chargeurs is building on its early sustainability investments and cementing its leadership as a full-circle digital company driving sustainability and flexibility at every stage of production, from design, development and manufacturing to marketing and selling.
“Made-to-order manufacturing is one of the most sustainable options available to the fashion industry and consumers, as it eliminates materials waste, overproduction and costly returns due to poor fit,” commented Audrey Petit, Managing Director of Chargeurs*PCC Fashion Technologies.
“We’re extremely proud to partner with Custom Wrkshop to supply our sustainable interlinings and inner components to its customers and enable conscious manufacturing through its global network of fully digitised factory partners. In addition, we will be offering Custom Wrkshop’s innovative plug-and-play software to our own customers, allowing them to easily add a module connected to digitised manufacturing facilities to their e-commerce stores so their end customers can create made-to-order pieces,” shared Audrey.
For designers of garments, footwear, bags and accessories, the Custom Wrkshop platform’s real-time costing engine provides full visibility into cost during the design process, reducing the use of materials while boosting speed to market.
It’s worth mentioning here that Chargeurs*PCC got into an exclusive partnership with 3D design software leader CLO last year and brand as well as designers can now easily import digital assets created with CLO into the Custom Wrkshop platform.
Matteo Gottardi, CEO and Creative Director at Custom Wrkshop, mentioned, “Our innovative and efficient on-demand production model is setting the standard in the fashion industry. Chargeurs*PCC’s extensive catalogue of sustainable materials, its large customer base and its relationships with 3D design leaders make it a perfect partner for us.”
