Patagonia revolutionizes material innovation with TEXbase software

Patagonia has partnered with TEXbase to streamline collaboration with their vendors throughout material sourcing, testing and development. TEXbase software enables Patagonia to more effectively bring to market innovative materials and maintain a competitive advantage in the performance apparel industry.

Managing over 6,000 raw materials annually sourced through suppliers worldwide, Patagonia required a solution that would create tighter collaboration with their material development partners while meeting strict quality standards. Product integrity and innovation are core attributes of Patagonia's brand, originating at the fiber level.

Patagonia focuses on these fundamental elements of early product development while striving to improve overall efficiency and accelerating time to market for their products. TEXbase, the global leader in providing collaborative software for material innovation in the textile industry, is providing the solution to allow Patagonia to meet their goals.

“Quality systems are incomplete without fabric and material development systems and most PDM systems do not address this important part of the process. TEXbase gives us more powerful front end tools that are measurable, helping to ensure brand equity” states Randy Harward, Director of Quality Assurance at Patagonia.

TEXbase software ultimately allows Patagonia's fabric mills and sourcing partners to input test results and collaborate on material specifications and sourcing in real-time to ensure data consistency and compliance. TEXbase enables Patagonia's employees worldwide to work together 24/7 through the web-based platform, which keeps the company's critical product information stored in one, centralized location.

This facilitates added insight into project management and streamlines the workflow for everyone involved in material development. With TEXbase software, Patagonia will drastically improve the clarity and efficiency in communicating both internally and externally with their sourcing partners which will allow for more effective material innovation.

According to Joe Walkuski, TEXbase Founder and CEO, “TEXbase will enable Patagonia to focus on material innovation while increasing the integrity of the end-product their customers have known to expect. We're continuously improving and developing new software to support efficient company growth and cost-saving measures for all our brand partners, fabric mills and textile technology companies involved in sourcing and pioneering new materials.”
