Swiss textile innovator HeiQ has developed one-of-a-kind Fast Fabric Sampling Tool heiq it!- an online fabric configuration platform that enables fabric managers at textile brands to assemble premium customised fabrics with innovative HeiQ technologies. Brands can order dozens of metres of functional fabric samples or directly field trial testing tech-shirts.

End of March, “heiq it!” is going to go live and will be available to innovation managers and fabric managers from textile brands globally.

Heiq it! enables fabric managers at textile brands to get functional fabrics within two weeks. Once registered online, brands will have the possibility to choose a suitable fabric type and structure from HeiQ’s premium fabric library for their target garment. In a next step, the desired functionality combination is added from HeiQ’s wide range of textile technologies, like dynamic cooling, advanced UV protection and durable odour control. In a further step the testing and specifications are selected. And finally, “heiq it!” provides the option to either order dozens of metres of treated functional fabric or ready-to-test assembled half-side or fully treated tech-shirts to perform real-life wearer trials. Once the desired functional fabric sample has been configured and ordered, HeiQ’s application specialist in Switzerland starts to produce the sample and coordinates its performance verification testing.

Altogether, “heiq it!” is going to accelerate, simplify and standardise the functional fabric sample ordering process, leaving more time for the essential wearer trial testing and performance evaluation of brands’ next textile product innovation. Fabric managers at brands are empowered to fast-track the creation of novel and enhanced garments while reducing the risk of failures.


Within only two weeks, the configurated fabric samples can be provided and thereby significantly speed up the innovation development and verification process.

The textile brands’ product and fabric innovation development and verification process is usually cumbersome and lengthy, especially the sourcing of functional fabric samples used for real-life wearer trials. The Swiss textile innovator HeiQ surveyed dozens of fabric and innovation managers at textile brands to get an in-depth insight into the daily life processes of innovation and was confronted with a major unmet need: rapid verification of innovation ideas.

Repeatedly respondents experienced a lead time of up to three months, from the first contact until receiving viable samples for prototyping and verification. Long sample verification times carry the risk of failure and missing the annual timeline for new innovations to launch. (SV)
