Team JUJUBE at the Sustainable Fashion Seminar held on 24 November at the AAMA-TEX exhibition at Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands .
Today, we attended The Asia Apparel and Textile Machinery Exhibition (AAMA-TEX) that is going into its 8th edition from 23rd to 26th November at Marina Bay Sands together with Jujube to discover more about the tools and equipments related to the garment manufacturing industry.
We learned that KANSAI is a dealer of industrial sewing machines and replacement parts for the shoe, garment, automotive, marine and leather industries, including Juki, Pfaff, Consew, Singer, etc. It was very insightful to see all these different tools that help create the fashion we wear.
We also visited the new brand “Accor” from Shing Ling Sewing Machine Co., Ltd., Taiwan that showcased all different kinds of sewing machines—industrial sewing machines, interlock sewing machine, chain stitch sewing machine, and knitting sewing machines.
I think this was Jujube’s favorite part on the exhibition—OptiTex Fashion Design Software. OptiTex develops innovative, user-friendly 2D and 3D CAD software for all cut-fabric and fashion-related industries. OptiTex’s fashion design software solutions are designed to facilitate collaboration among partners throughout the manufacturing process. They are not the only ones exhibiting, so we will have to do some research backend before we decide if the software will be useful for us.
