Knovus offers the first virtual knit sampling service available in Australia.
Pushing creativity further without the risk and expense of numerous samples, wasted physical resources and time.
Virtual sampling is a design and development service that simulates knit designs and products in 2D and 3D renders, providing high-res realistic images that can be used for design development, communication, merchandising and social media, all without knitting a stitch.
Knovus has the capability to simulate bespoke yarns or scan in commercial yarns, match Pantone colours, simulate swatches, create colourways and produce 2D achieved showing different fibres, melange compositions, colour combinations and weights. Any yarn can be simply scanned and applied to the knit product.
Virtual sampling and the digitisation of designs significantly reduces lead time for product development. The product planning can be delayed as much as possible so that the latest trends can be reflected accurately, also improving forecasting accuracy of product demand.
Having accurate and timely responses to product demand results in less sale items and lost opportunities, the flow on that being increased sustainability through the reduction of unsold discarded products. From the yarn and knit structure through to the final garment virtual sampling can shorten the design and sampling process by months. No shipping, no waste, no back and forth emails.
Clear and concise communication and photo realistic images means that designers get what they want quicker and factories waste less time and resources in development.
