Creating a totally sustainable, digital, and automated garment finishing production near the consumer, cutting time to market and eliminating stock without increasing costs.
For the company, digitalization is the key to achieving the transformation of the industry making it more competitive, productive, and sustainable.
Highlighting the eDesginer software for creating jeans as a fundamental tool to achieving this transformation, as well as EIM software to measure the environmental impact.
Jeanologia, the Spanish company leader in developing eco-efficient technologies, will present its new operative model to produce on-demand with zero discharge 21-24 June at Texprocess Frankfurt. (Hall 8.0 Booth G39). Integrating its technologies, the company promotes a revolutionary production model close to the consumer to produce what sells instead of selling what is produced through digitalization, sustainability, and automation. As pointed out by Carmen Silla, Marketing Director at Jeanologia, 15% of clothing produced is never sold. “The value chain of the textile industry is complex, very disjointed, and not very efficient. It takes six to nine months from the design and production of a garment to get it to the consumer.”
For Jeanologia, the solution to end this inefficient production structure is to encourage a closer production or “postponement” of value-adding to the garment in order to cut the time-to-market and eliminate stock and waste. And to do so without increasing the costs, guaranteeing competitivity and ensuring maximum productivity.
To this end, Jeanologia has developed Urban Factory, a new digital finishing plant, interconnected and automated that integrates all its technologies for garment finishing. Based on a production that is totally sustainable and with zero discharge, it responds quickly to consumer demands with an agile and digital production that does not pollute and saves costs.
Jeanologia’s commitment is to bring 15-25% of manufacturing production to Europe and the USA, initiating the needed process of reindustrialization “the manufacturing of the original garment will stay in the country where these activities usually take place, but the garment finishing will be done close to the consumer” explains Silla.
eDesigner y EIM: Keys to achieving transformation of the textile industry
For Jeanologia, digitalization is the key to achieving the transformation of the industry making it more competitive, productive, and sustainable.
As signaled by Silla “the digital transformation in the textile industry should start with a change in how jeans are designed”.
To do so, eDesginer is an important tool. The latest generation software by Jeanologia makes it possible to produce virtually and with infinite creative possibilities in a question of minutes, simplifying the design process and reducing samples by 80%.
The objective of eDesginer is to make jean design fast, intuitive, and creative as well as connect designers with the wash developers and brands with manufacturers, standardizing formats and communication. By doing this production is streamlined and time-to-market is sped up because a design can become a sample and be approved in very little time.
At Texprocess, the company will show new features of eDesigner for improving production. Also, it will reveal new jean galleries specifically for washes and jean designs that are constantly updated with content developed by Jeanologia’s Brainbox team.
Lastly, Silla has also pointed out the importance of EIM (Environmental Impact Measuring) software, developed by Jeanologia and made available to the whole industry to create more sustainable processes that are efficient and financially feasible.
It has become a world standard and is currently used by 100 brands to achieve more sustainable and ethical production.
The tool makes it possible to measure the environmental impact of garment finishing processes in terms of water, energy and chemical consumption as well as workers’ health, aiding the industry towards its total sustainability. “If it isn’t measured, it can’t be improved” concludes Silla.
More than 25 years working for the world
Since 1994 its mission has been to create an ethical, sustainable, and eco-efficient industry, marking a new era through sustainability, digitalization, and automation.
The company leads the transformation of the industry with its disruptive technologies: laser, G2 ozone, e-Flow, SmartBoxes, Colorbox, and H2Zero capable of increasing productivity, reducing costs, and water and energy consumption, as well as eliminating emissions and harmful discharge, guaranteeing zero pollution.
It MissionZero, to transform the way of manufacturing jeans so as to eliminate 100% of generated discharge in the making and finishing of Blue Jeans, from the fabric to the final garment.
The company currently employs 220 Jeanologist from 26 nationalities and has 10 subsidiaries. More than 35% of the 5 billion jeans produced every year in the world are made using its technologies and have gained the trust of the main market brands.
