Introducing the world’s first AI sourcing
assistant for fashion

Born in the frigid latitudes of northern Sweden, Frank the bear has never been an ordinary, berry-seeking bear. He’s a cool bear – from his style to his persona – with aspirations beyond stocking up for the impending winter season. From the start, Frank took pride in meticulously choosing his outfits each day, as the only member of his pack to don any clothing at all. While the rest of his family were on cloud nine finding a bush of untouched blueberries, Frank felt like he was always waiting for something to happen – something big. Upon realizing it wouldn’t, he decided to take matters into his own hands. 

Serendipitously, we found Frank wandering around outside the Material Exchange office in central Stockholm just a few months ago. While his family settled into their annual period of hibernation, Frank had hitchhiked his way down south (quite the challenge without opposable thumbs).  

One thing that struck us about Frank from the start: he knew how to dress. A fur-lined denim jacket, cozy flannel button down, beige beanie, and signature orange sunnies (he never takes them off). We knew from that first moment – Material Exchange needed Frank.  

As luck would have it, Frank needed Material Exchange, too. Our fashion-forward, sustainability-minded scale up was a place where Frank could make a difference. And now, Frank is going to make a difference in your fabric sourcing – as the world’s first AI sourcing assistant.  

Over these last few months, Frank has undergone an intense training program on material sourcing. It turns out that Frank has a photographic memory and can memorize all the materials in our library and find you the ones you need with a click of the finger, er… Paw.
