LOVE HERO uses Kornit Digital for sustainable Fashion

Kornit Digital announced that the London-based LOVE HERO fashion label uses Kornit’s sustainable, digitized, on-demand production capabilities to deliver its complete line of nature-themed apparel.

All fabrics are traceable and certified via their blockchain platform, Retraced, to minimize their eco footprint. Cut-and-sew operations take place in Portugal.

LOVE HERO is currently engaged with Kornit on the mechanics of imprinting silk, biodegradable nylon, and other diverse materials. One such application involves two-sided fabrics—nylon on top, with cotton on the reverse.

“Kornit is committed to becoming the operating system for sustainable fashion fulfillment, on demand,” says Chris Govier, KDEU Managing Director. “With visionary creators like Joshua and LOVE HERO ready to test the bounds of our design and color capabilities, and our growing network of digitized producers ready to make those visions tangible with speed, economy, and quality from all corners of the globe, we’re changing the public percetion of what digital can do—meeting the global sustainability imperative, without demanding compromise from any actor in that value chain.”

Kornit Digital: 2020 Impact and Environmental, Social, and Governance Report released

Kornit Digital Ltd., a worldwide market leader in digital textile production technologies, released its 2020 Impact and Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) Report. This inaugural report affirms Kornit’s commitment to achieving specific ESG goals. This includes the way Kornit conducts business, creates meaningful impact in local communities, and achieves environmental sustainability, in addition to how Kornit will continue to build a diverse and inclusive company culture, foster employee growth and development, and empower fair and safe labor practices globally.

This includes the way Kornit conducts business, creates meaningful impact in local communities, and achieves environmental sustainability, in addition to how Kornit will continue to build a diverse and inclusive company culture, foster employee growth and development, and empower fair and safe labor practices globally.
 
In addition to enabling eco-friendly production processes with technology and consumables that use less water, reduce waste, and minimize the carbon footprint, Kornit technology solutions enable sustainable production on demand, which eliminates overproduction of apparel and other textile goods. A 2021 Life Cycle Assessment conducted on two flagship products, the Kornit Atlas MAX and Kornit Presto S, demonstrated that relative to traditional analog processes, Kornit’s digital production systems used up to 95% less water and 94% less energy, and produced up to 83% less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the Presto S system and up to 93% less water and 66% less energy, and produced up to 82% less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the Atlas MAX system.


Based on this study, in addition to past sustainability performance results and strategic projections for business growth and market expansion, by 2026 Kornit Digital’s sustainable on-demand solutions are expected to enable the production of approximately 2.5 billion apparel items in a responsible manner to deliver:

  • Zero overproduction: By moving the industry to on-demand manufacturing, Kornit will help eliminate the estimated 1.1 billion apparel items overproduced using traditional production methods, based on an industry average of 30% overproduction. This is about 1 apparel item for each and every person living in Europe and North America – saved.
  • Zero water waste: In addition to eliminating overstocks, Kornit-enabled production on demand will support saving an estimated 4.3 trillion liters (1.1 trillion gallons) of water. This is the estimated amount of drinking water needed for the entire U.S. population for 11 years.
  • Reduced CO2 emissions: By enabling sustainable on-demand production, consuming less energy, and generating less waste, Kornit will prevent an estimated 17.2 billion kilograms (37.9 billion pounds) of greenhouse gas emissions, compared to traditional manufacturing methods. This is equivalent to the estimated amount of carbon dioxide emitted from circumnavigating the entire planet with a car nearly 2,400 times.

Furthermore, the report outlines Kornit’s commitment to achieving KPIs that address waste, chemicals, GHG emissions, energy, product development, employee training, diversity and inclusion, and the company’s supply chain.

  • Event will showcase how fashion technology transforms creativity and expression, and eliminates wasteful overproduction prominent in the fashion industry

Kornit Digital Ltd. (NASDAQ: KRNT), a worldwide market leader in digital textile production technologies, announced today a collaboration with fashion designers threeASFOUR. The new collection, KUNDALINI, premiered today during New York Fashion Week, demonstrating exceptional capabilities for designers in the fashion industry to express brilliance, creativity, and extraordinary quality by using Kornit’s sustainable, on-demand fashion production technologies.

Founded in 2005, threeASFOUR has built a legacy of fusing cutting-edge technology with traditional craftsmanship to create pieces that are both fashion and art. The intricate designs in the KUNDALINI collection unlock the full value of Kornit’s innovative and cutting-edge technology and showcase the power of the digital-first approach for fashion. The entire collection was produced using Kornit’s revolutionary MAX technology, which offers never-before-seen digital decoration and design capabilities.

Working closely with Kornit, threeASFOUR was able to maintain complete design freedom in accordance with their vision, while producing quickly and significantly eliminating waste. Using Kornit technologies enabled their designers to shrink design cycles to mere days—or even hours in some cases—which is inconceivable in the traditional ways of producing fashion.

“Collaborating with top global designers like threeASFOUR demonstrates that fashion production can be cleaner and more sustainable, while also being efficient and more responsive to inspiration and creativity,” said Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital Chief Executive Officer. “Following the massive success of Tel Aviv Fashion Week, we are now creating exhibits and partnerships in New York, Los Angeles, London—and other global fashion hubs that need to adopt eco-conscious digital means of production. This collaboration with threeASFOUR is another step on our journey to become the operating system for on-demand sustainable, proximity fashion.”

“We’ve built our brand on pushing boundaries, advancing social progress, and uniting fashion with nature and with self, while experimenting with technological innovations,” said Adi Gil, Creative Director at threeASFOUR. “Our vision for more sustainable and meaningful fashion unites us with Kornit Digital, whose technologies seem to have been designed from the ground up to help us achieve our goals. We’re excited about the infinite design freedom that Kornit on-demand production solutions offer the fashion industry, and how it could help grow our brand and raise our profile and accessibility in the marketplace.”
Kornit Digital’s on-demand production ecosystem uses considerably less water and energy and generates far less greenhouse gas emissions relative to traditional analog production processes. As the cornerstone of an efficient micro-factory production model, Kornit’s technology uses safe and sustainable consumables to enable proximity production, eliminating the logistical waste, vulnerability, and time to market associated with multinational supply chains.

WEKO has taken over RotaSpray GmbH

Weko Holding GmbH has taken over RotaSpray GmbH from Oehringen with retroactive effect from January 1st, 2021 and further expands its textile segment.

With the merger of the two companies, the competencies in the field of functional wet finishing, digital printing pre-treatment and spray dyeing processes will be bundled for the textile segment. Both companies believe that these segments offer good future opportunities, because the demand for a resource-saving, CO2-reduced dyeing and finishing process for textile yarns and fabrics is increasing rapidly. Likewise the market trend of ever smaller production lot sizes per order.

RotaSpray GmbH will continue to be managed as an independent unit within the WEKO Holding Group and will focus purely on the high-quality textile sector.
WEKO has been developing and producing non-contact application systems for product optimization and surface finishing with different types of liquids and powdery substances since 1953. The areas of application are broad and the nonwovens, paper, tissue, printing, wood fiber boards, foils and metal industries are successfully supported with WEKO solutions.

Der Verbrauchertyp, der in Zukunft häufiger vertreten sein wird, ist der sogenannte Fusion Shopper. Er verteilt seine Einkäufe auf stationäre Geschäfte, den Onlinehandel und Click & Collect. Einzelhändler und Marken sehen sich gezwungen, mit der Entwicklung Schritt zu halten.

  • Experten gehen davon aus, dass der Vormarsch des Click & Collect Modells anhalten wird. 60 % der Konsumenten, die den Service bereits genutzt haben, können sich vorstellen erneut über Click & Collect zu kaufen.
  • Einzelhändler und Marken stehen unter Druck, ihre Kanäle schnell an diese Veränderungen anzupassen, da sie Verbrauchern meist noch kein konsistentes Einkaufserlebnis bieten.
  • Mehr als die Hälfte (52 %) der deutschen Verbraucher zieht das Einkaufen im Ladengeschäft dem Online- oder Click & Collect-Einkauf jedoch weiterhin vor. Trotz des starken Umsatzwachstums bezeichnen 54 % der Befragten Click & Collect als „das Schlechteste aus beiden Welten".
  • Das Designexperten-Team von DS Smith bietet Einzelhändlern innovative Lösungen, um das Einkaufserlebnis der Kunden zu verbessern.

Mit der HYGH AG liefert ein weiteres Innovationsunternehmen ein eindrucksvolles Beispiel dafür, welche Dynamik in der Berliner Wirtschaft steckt. Das Engagement unterstreicht Berlins Status als führender Start-up-Hotspot in Europa. Der neue Partner für Berlin HYGH AG wird sich nun im Netzwerk mit neuen Konzepten und besonderem Knowhow für ein modernes Image der Hauptstadtmetropole einsetzen und Berlin als Förderstätte innovativer Geschäftsideen – wie der von HYGH selbst – national und international positionieren.

Der Mehrwert, den die Digitalisierung für die Berliner Werbewirtschaft bietet, verdichtet sich in dem digitalen Konzept der HYGH AG, wo sich in nur 5 Minuten eine individuelle Werbekampagne freischalten lässt. Mini-Kampagne oder großes Rollout, deutschlandweit oder nur im Bezirk – HYGH AG ist der Partner für digitale Außenkommunikationsmodelle, von denen auch Berlin profitieren will. „Deutschland hat viele Innovationen zu bieten, doch Außenwerbung als ein zentraler Weg zum Kunden, war angesichts meist kleiner Werbebudgets für viele Unternehmen bis zu unserem Start keine Option“, erklärt Fritz Frey, Geschäftsführer und Mitbegründer der HYGH AG.

Frankfurt Fashion Week im Januar 2022 als phygitale Messe

Besucher*innen an fünf Tagen aus 60 Ländern – die digitale Ausgabe der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week war ein voller Erfolg. Vom 5. bis 9. Juli 2021 bot das FFW STUDIO kontemporären wie zukunftsweisenden Fashion-Content in seiner konzentriertesten Essenz: Drei Konferenzen, über 60 Panels, mehr als 72 Stunden Diskussionen, Talks und Präsentationen mit mehr als 150 Speakern und digitale Beiträge von rund 20 game changing Brands haben gezeigt, dass die Mode- und Kreativwelt bereit ist, die notwendigen Schritte zu unternehmen, um die aktuell stattfindende Transformation der Branche erfolgreich zu meistern. Die Besonderheit: Die Inhalte des FFW STUDIO bleiben weiterhin on demand verfügbar.

Besucher*innen an fünf Tagen aus 60 Ländern – die digitale Ausgabe der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week war ein voller Erfolg. Vom 5. bis 9. Juli 2021 bot das FFW STUDIO kontemporären wie zukunftsweisenden Fashion-Content in seiner konzentriertesten Essenz: Drei Konferenzen, über 60 Panels, mehr als 72 Stunden Diskussionen, Talks und Präsentationen mit mehr als 150 Speakern und digitale Beiträge von rund 20 game changing Brands haben gezeigt, dass die Mode- und Kreativwelt bereit ist, die notwendigen Schritte zu unternehmen, um die aktuell stattfindende Transformation der Branche erfolgreich zu meistern. Die Besonderheit: Die Inhalte des FFW STUDIO bleiben weiterhin on demand verfügbar.

Alleine die multidisziplinären und internationalen Konferenzformate „The New European Bauhaus – Werkstatt der Zukunft“, organisiert vom Fashion Council Germany in Kooperation mit der Frankfurt Fashion Week, der „Frankfurt Fashion SDG Summit presented by Conscious Fashion Campaign“ in Kooperation mit dem United Nations Office for Partnerships und die von der Messe Frankfurt umgesetzte Neonyt-Konferenz „Fashionsustain“ lieferten in über 40 Stunden Live-Stream Deep-Dives, Debattenbeiträge und Einblicke in die beiden Leitthemen der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week: Sustainability und Digitisation in Verbindung mit neusten Trends, Designs und Styles.

Phygital, on point, zeitgemäß
Die Frankfurt Fashion Week versteht sich als Meeting Point progressiven Innovationsdenkens und gegenwärtiger Ästhetik: Nach ihrer Coronabedingt erzwungenen Digitalpremiere wird sie vom 17. bis 21. Januar 2022 die gesamte Branche erstmals phygital – also gleichzeitig onsite und online – in Frankfurt zusammenbringen. Das digitale FFW STUDIO wird dafür dauerhaft integriert in das in Frankfurt geplante, ganzheitliche Fashion Week-Ecosystem bestehend aus kontemporären Messekonzepten, multidisziplinären Konferenzen, innovativen Runwayformaten, der Aktivierung des öffentlichen Raums und einem verbindenden Plattformgedanken.

Dafür will die Frankfurt Fashion Week alle Stakeholder der Mode- und Textilbranche zusammenbringen: von Topmanager*innen und Entscheidungsträger*innen über Einkäufer*innen bis hin zu Produktmanager*innen und Designer*innen. Deshalb soll die gesamte Wertschöpfungskette in Frankfurt vereint werden – neben der für eine Fashion Week maßgeblichen Präsentation von Mode in Runwayshows und Kollektionen, sollen daher zukünftig auch innovative Vorstufenunternehmen und Ingredient Brands von den Rohstoffen über die Fertigung bis hin zu Services in das FFW Ecosystem integriert werden.

Die beiden zentralen Zukunftsthemen der Branche: Sustainability & Digitisation und vielversprechender Ausblick auf Januar 2022
Soziale Lieferketten, Traceability, faire Produktionsbedingungen, Virtual Fashion, Blockchain, glokale Kollaborationen, phygitaler Retail und State-of-the-Art-Materialinnovationen – das vielfältige Programm hat die Diversität und Spannbreite der die Fashionwelt aktuell beschäftigenden Themen und Herausforderungen sichtbar gemacht.

Was bei der digitalen Ausgabe nur bedingt möglich war, wird in Zukunft zu einem festen Bestandteil der Frankfurt Fashion Week: Ab Januar 2022 wird die FFW zusätzlich in die City verlängert: Frankfurter Gastronomie, Hotellerie, Clubszene, Museen, Festivals und der Einzelhandel.

Die Initiierenden der Frankfurt Fashion Week, die Messe Frankfurt und die Premium Group, setzen ab Januar nicht nur ihre bestehenden Messen, Premium, Seek und Neonyt sowie die bestehenden Konferenzen in Frankfurt um, sondern lancieren zusätzliche Messeformate für die Fashion Community.

Brennet launcht Order Tool zur saisonübergreifenden Designs

Frühjahr/Sommer, Herbst/Winter – die zwei Saison-Kollektionen pro Jahr sind in der Modebranche gelernt und etabliert. Brennet, der Schweizer Spezialist für individuelle Textil-Lösungen, möchte diese starren Strukturen flexibler gestalten und setzt mit einem neuen, digitalen Order Tool auf die permanente Präsentation kreativer Design-Ideen.

Mit dem neuen Kollektionsviewer hat Brennet ein innovatives Portal gelauncht, das es Kunden ab sofort ermöglicht, saisonübergreifend noch schneller und komfortabler die passenden Stoffe zu finden. Mittelfristig möchte das Unternehmen damit von einer saisonalen auf eine rollende Kollektion übergehen.

Mit dem neuen Kollektionsviewer hat Brennet ein innovatives Portal gelauncht, das es Kunden ab sofort ermöglicht, saisonübergreifend noch schneller und komfortabler die passenden Stoffe zu finden. Mittelfristig möchte das Unternehmen damit von einer saisonalen auf eine rollende Kollektion übergehen.

«Wir leben in einer schnelllebigen Welt, in der der Fokus auf das Set-up von zwei Saison-Kollektionen, Katalog Aussendungen und Messeauftritten längst nicht mehr zeitgemäß ist. Unsere Kunden sollen – unabhängig von Raum und Zeit – einfach und intuitiv die passenden Stoffe für ihre Bedürfnisse finden. Deshalb war es für uns nur logisch, an einer digitalen Lösung zu arbeiten», erklärt Marco Zhu-Schneider, CSO der Cilander-Gruppe, zur Idee hinter der Entwicklung des neuen Order Tools. Der Kollektionsviewer zeigt die E-Collection, in der alle Stoffmuster alphabetisch geordnet, mit colorierten Bildern, Namen und Referenzen aufgelistet sind. Per Klick auf das gewünschte Stoffmuster öffnet sich dieses in der Detailansicht inkl. der Angabe aller relevanter Daten, wie der Zusammensetzung, des Gewichts, der Maße, des Preises, der Bemusterung sowie der Lieferzeiten. So finden Kunden schnell und unkompliziert was sie suchen, oder können sich bei Bedarf von den vielen Design-Ideen inspirieren lassen.

Der Mehrwert für die Kunden liegt dabei für Zhu-Schneider klar auf der Hand: «Wir können schnell auf Trends reagieren und unseren Kunden eine kontinuierliche und saisonübergreifende Entwicklung von Design-Ideen als Inspirationsquelle bieten. Die Auswahl und Bestellung von Stoffmustern waren nie schneller und unkomplizierter».
