ITFA hosts seminar for Palestinian textile professionals

Feb '08
The Israel Textile & Fashion Association in cooperation with Peres Center for Peace recently hosted a seminar for Palestinian textile professionals, featuring OptiTex software. OptiTex, an Israeli company, is the world's leading design software manufacturer for fabric-related industries.

“We organized this seminar within our capacity-building series in order to introduce Palestinian textile professionals to new software, thereby allowing them to become more competitive and provide enhanced opportunities for Israeli-Palestinian trade cooperation” said Idit Nirel, Business Cooperation Projects, of the Peres Center.

OptiTex technology is used in countries from Argentina to Vietnam. Its creativity-enhancing package provides a fully customizable onscreen environment. Using either 2D or 3D models that can be adjusted for a wide variety of body types, designers can see how different fabrics will move before the first piece of fabric is cut. Users can also realize a rapid ROI via computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM), eliminating wasted material and speeding items to market.

“It's remarkable how user-friendly OptiTex software is,” said Tarek Sous, the chairman of the union of Palestinian Textile. “Even though the software is feature laden, its intuitive design allowed even the least experienced trainees to quickly grasp the wide range of possibilities OptiTex provides.”

“We were extremely pleased at the positive feedback the trainees provided,” according to Ran Machtinger, President and CEO of OptiTex, Ltd. “72% of the students rated the practical application as excellent or very good, while 79% felt that the training would benefit their businesses. In this part of the world, building bridges to peace is essential, and we're glad that our software could be part of that process.”

Isaac Schechter, from the Israel Textile & Fashion Association happily concurs with Machtinger's assessment. “All our attendees felt that they benefited from the training. OptiTex's software is deployed in virtually every fabric-related industry including fashion, upholstery, automotive and aeronautics. Experience with this software will certainly make our trainees marketable on a worldwide basis.”
