For the HEREWEAR project, Sqetch plays a crucial role in supporting activities such as stakeholder community building & servicing as well as dissemination and communication.
Sqetch leads the task “software platforms for implementation” which focuses on building a networked manufacturing service that can be collaboratively used by fashion designers, brands, suppliers, and manufacturers to work on their projects. Within the project, Sqetch cooperates with Circular.Fashion, Mai Bine, and Queen of Raw on aligning their software platforms, integrating users, and pulling together their abilities to propose an innovative and performant set of digital tools making circular fashion design more accessible even to small producers.
The envisaged user flow addresses a fair share of garment production in Europe represented by relatively small but agile and innovative SMEs, well networked together, organized in a strong community, and supported by digital tools to manage their process efficiently. The target is stakeholders involved in garment design and production, as well as textile waste handling.
This holistic solution for design, production, and waste handling also allows the setting up of value chains for making circular bio-based textiles feasible and sharing resources for open innovation and collaboration.
