Fashion for Good, an initiative launched with an initial grant by founding partner C&A Foundation, convenes brands, producers, retailers, suppliers, non-profit organisations, innovators and funders, united in their shared ambition to reimagine the way fashion is designed, made, worn and reused. With a focus on sustainability and redesigning the global supply chain, Fashion for Good hand-selected Tamicare from an extensive list of innovators. As a Scaling Programme participant, Tamicare gains access to a network of technologists, scientists and industry experts, enabling it to accelerate and expand the adoption of Cosyflex® technology.
Tamar Giloh, Tamicare CEO, comments: “We are excited about the opportunity to work together with Fashion for Good. Tamicare being selected for the Scaling Programme is a great compliment and we are fully committed to working together with Fashion for Good toward important goals while leveraging our Cosyflex® technology for the sake of a good fashion industry.”
Cosyflex®, Tamicare’s 3D printing technology, uses additive manufacturing techniques to apply layers of raw materials (e.g. cotton) and water based polymers to create finished textile products. This ground-breaking mass production technology allows manufacturers to eliminate the wasteful and chemically hazardous processes of dyeing and cut-make-trim, shortening the supply chain with a sustainable and eco-friendly solution.
Ehud Giloh, Tamicare CTO and the mastermind behind Cosyflex® technology, adds: “It is surprising to see how this young technology continuously teaches us what it can do, and we are delighted to work with partners that have the vision and the patience to change the world for good.”
