SwatchOn 3D Digital Fabric Library

3D Fabric as a “Virtual Twin”

Wondering what we mean by “3D Digital Fabric”?

3D digital fabric is a precise replica of a physical textile inside a digital space – this is what’s called a virtual-twin.

Our digital fabric files store complex physical properties of the fabric, allowing the 3D fabric on our site to resemble the same behavior of the actual fabric that’s offered on our platform. Isn’t the future cool?

*The best part: Our digital fabric files are completely compatible with CLO and can be downloaded for free, directly from SwatchOn.

What this means for you

1 Order the real fabrics

With just 3 yard MOQs, your physical fabric twin is always available.

As designers adopt 3D design into their workflow, a digital fabric means nothing unless it matches a fabric you can actually use for production.

Our digital fabrics must work in real life – not just a 3D world. So, create in 3D, and then trust that the physical fabric you purchase from SwatchOn exactly matches what you just created on screen.

The physical twin is available for order with 3-yard MOQ, and sample swatches are also available. Our products are shipped to over 50+ countries in 5 - 10 business days.

2 Welcome to a whole new level of transparency

SwatchOn already provides videos for every product we offer, with the goal to show you to the characteristics of each fabric. Well, with our new virtual twins, we will be able to offer a completely new level of transparency, bringing each fabric to life in a new way.

Coming soon, you will be able to see 3D garment simulations: for each fabric, you will see how it looks on different clothing types or patterns, making it easier to envision how a fabric will appear as a top, bottom, outerwear…what else?

3 Get a head start with accurate 3D digital files

To successfully digitize a fabric and create a virtual-twin, we mathematically capture all of the details in the textile, and completely recreate its physical properties, including weight, thickness, texture, sheerness, friction, stretch, and movement. Capturing all of this, we end up with a 95% accuracy between our digital and real fabric products offered on our platform.

Our digital fabric library helps to ensure consistency between virtual prototypes and physical end products which reduces sampling iterations and approval cycles, accelerating your time to market.

The Future of Fabric

Continue to generate digital fabric in vast offerings

We’re continuing to build out our digital fabric offerings, aimed at becoming the largest digital fabric library available in 2021.

High quality digital fabrics offered with real-life twin

We’re committed to our “real-life” fabric twins – making it easy to ordering and receive fabrics, no matter your design process.

Leading digital innovation for industry-wide adoption

We’re focused on greater sustainability across fabric sourcing. We want to spearhead industry-wide adoption to digital practices, to be in alignment with real world apparel production. And we believe this new digital library is the beginning of that change.
