Israel-based Browzwear International Ltd. — a developer and producer of 3-D fashion
design and communication software solutions for the apparel and textile industries — has developed
a Fabric Testing Kit to enable fashion designers and pattern makers to easily measure fabric
properties required for true-to-life 3-D apparel. The kit — the first offered for 3-D visualization
— measures a fabric’s stretch, bend and shear properties; and verifies the test results.
When used with Browzwear’s V-Stitcher™ fashion design and communication software,
the Fabric Testing Kit is capable of shortening production time, reducing costs and enhancing the
realism and accuracy of fabric simulation, according to the company.
