Indian garment maker AIE Apparel is moving closer to virtual sampling with Browzwear International's V-Stitcher.

Browzwear's Asian partner has now completed V-Stitcher training with AIE.

V-Stitcher aims to reduce unnecessary time in the sampling processes as boost efficiency.

AIE CEO Anish Tandon said: "With the world going the high-tech way, gone are the days of pattern makers manually drawing patterns without an idea of the physical body on which this has to be fitted.

"These days, it has to be done with the help of technology and that is what the VStitcher is all about."

Tandon said V-Stitcher helped factories find pattern/fit and specs for the program faster and more efficiently, slashing leadtime for pattern/fit approval.
