Material Exchange is delighted to announce a new and exciting feature that will further aid product creation and development. In addition to digital material samples, the Material Exchange Digital library will include footwear and apparel hardware. The new feature will enable suppliers and manufacturers to upload images of their inventory including: Buckles, Eyelets, Hooks, Labels, Logos, Loops, Rings, Rivets, and Shanks. In addition, the hardware images will come with an extensive attribute list to describe each hardware sample in detail.
This is a critical new feature that completely streamlines the collaboration process. Material Exchange is a true end-to-end solution, not only can brands view digital materials and hardware components of their chosen supplier, but they can also view the production capabilities, sustainable accreditations, testing certifications and company details. Brands and material suppliers can connect, collaborate and communicate within Material Exchange.
Coming soon – Material Exchange will soon be adding more new features and capabilities. In the next update we will add the facility to upload Laces and Webbing materials. Look out for our next announcement.
