Two companies supplying cutting edge technology to the apparel industry have entered into a strategic partnership, which they believe will provide designers with a tool for enhanced garment and store design. Israeli firm Browzwear International Ltd and Koppermann Computersysteme GmbH of Germany say one of their goals is to tightly integrate Browzwear´s V-Stitcher product with Koppermann´s Tex-Design drawing and Tex-Store visual merchandising products. This will enable customers to apply patterns generated in Tex-Design directly on V-Stitcher's avatars, eliminating the need for format conversions.
