          Shima Seiki launches digital yarn sourcing website

          Shima Seiki has launched yarnbank, its new digital yarn sourcing web service. Yarnbank is the world’s first online web service for searching and viewing the latest yarns, developed with cooperation from yarn companies from around the world. Shima Seiki of Wakayama, Japan, is one of the leading solutions provider in the fashion textile industry.

          Registered users have free access to the yarnbank archive of yarn information and digital yarn data. Users can also download yarn data for free, for use in fabric simulation and virtual sampling on SDS-onE APEX4 design system as well as APEXFiz subscription-based design software likewise announced last month. Users can, thereby, avoid the need to scan yarn on their own. By using yarn that is available for actual production, users can further rest assured that their simulations created using yarnbank are not merely realistic images but accurate representations using yarn that can actually be purchased and used in production. Such clear communication is possible with yarnbank by bringing together each player in the supply chain, spinner, knit manufacturer, and apparel companies, and connecting them digitally to eliminate trial-and-error sample making that is the legacy of obsolete analogue fashion production, according to a media statement by Shima Seiki.

          With its design system and software, Shima Seiki has traditionally promoted design simulation and virtual sampling as an essential part of its ‘Total Fashion System’ concept wherein virtual samples replace physical samples in an effort to reduce time, cost and materials wasted in the sample making phase, further realising overall efficiency and reduced waste for a sustainable manufacturing supply chain. Now, with the launch of yarnbank, virtual sampling on Shima Seiki design software provides even more effective digital transformation (DX) for the fashion industry.

          Registration is free to APEX users, while yarn companies can choose from different plans for registering their yarn on yarnbank. For yarn companies, yarnbank serves as a brand-new promotional platform with the opportunity to present their yarns directly to their customers. In that respect, yarn companies can reduce their dependence on traditional sample books as a means to promote their products, saving time, cost and material and doing their part for sustainability.
