Timeline

The Material Exchange journey began in August, 2016, when a collection of forward-thinking industry experts and pioneers in digitalization and supply chain innovation began to reimagine the way the footwear and apparel industry interacts with materials. The vision was to transform the antiquated physical material selection process and create a sustainable market for the industry, by leveraging digital visualization technology as well as advanced filtering capabilities.
