Apr '10
A faster and interactive research tool for entrepreneurs and designers in the international market. This is the objective of the new service provided by the Brazilian Association of Companies of Components for Leather, Footwear, and Manufactured Goods (Assintecal), namely the International Virtual Materials Library. Promoted with the support of Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency) and SEBRAE (Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service), the international virtual materials library will be distributed in buyer projects, trade shows, and international events of the footwear industry.

According to Ilse Biason Guimarães, Assintecal's superintendent, the software was designed to offer greater and better usability, with easy-to-handle tools. Divided into types of materials, segment and suppliers, the interface enables the user to get to know the entire palette of Brazilian components. Currently, the database comprises technical information of over 100 Brazilian components manufacturers. “Each product is properly identified with information about the type of material, color, texture, shape, name, and how to contact the Brazilian supplier company", she explains.

In the system, the components are segmented by groups of materials, and organized according to the product construction requirements, such as: soles, laminates, fabrics, and leathers, among others. The program allows the user to make the composition of different materials, thus proposing the creation of a shoe model. “The user can select the materials and make the arrangement he or she considers most convenient. This resource will contribute to the creation process of new products and collections", says Ms. Guimarães.
