Arahne partners with 'Pattern Design' to help weavers

Arahne, developer of textile CAD/CAM for weaving has partnered with PatternDesigns.com, to help weavers access wide range of new designs at an affordable cost.

How is this different from simply going to one of the well known stock image web sites, and buying it from there?

Pattern Design offers a monthly subscription for weavers, under very special terms. A weaver can download over 3500 designs as PNG images in 600x600 resolution, already in seamless repeat and with reduced number of colors.

So they are immediately usable in a jacquard CAD system: assign a weave to each color, and you are ready to weave. Any image can be used for free during sampling period. It no longer costs a fortune to create a vast collection of fresh new designs.

Once a weaver has the order for a particular design, he or she needs to actually buy the design. With the purchase of the design, a weaver also gets the image in 2400x2400 pixel resolution, and a vector image in SVG format and as EPS, PDF or AI if requested. All designs are non-exclusive and include unlimited production license.

Vector images can be imported in ArahPaint5, and scaled to any resolution without any quality loss, depending on the weaver's jacquard width. ArahPaint5 is a free jacquard drawing program developed by Arahne, and it can be downloaded from Arahne's web page. It is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OSX operating systems.

“Arahne has always included some free sample pictures with the Arahne CAD. We were surprised to find most of them woven, when we visited the customers. And best of all, even if fabric originated from the same picture, it was different in all the cases. Every company used their own density, yarns, weave structures.

So the fabric looked original and fresh, not a copy of somebody else's work. We noticed certain hunger for design ideas among the stressed-out designers in factories. We have partnered with Pattern Design to create this special offer and help the weavers.” explained Mr. Dušan Peterc, the owner of Arahne.

“By offering our diverse design range to weavers, Arahne introduced us to a whole new group of clients. We realized that especially these companies crave for a design solution like ours, which does not replace internal design structures but enhances them.

"Our design portfolio grows daily. Currently, more than 200 design partners all over the world create high-quality designs inspired by our particular trend briefings. Our internal design team ensures that every one of our designs meets our design standards - otherwise they won't get offered." explained Martina Stadler, Head of Design and founder member of Pattern Design.

Before offering Pattern Design for weavers to the general public, Arahne made a test run with a limited number of forward thinking weaving mills in Italy, and five of them immediately applied and started using the service. To get access to Pattern Designs for weavers, you need to register at this site.
