Embracing Technological Innovation

Chinese manufacturers are integrating cutting-edge innovations such as 3D virtual sampling, utilizing platforms like Clo3D, Browzwear, and Style3D. This revolutionizes design processes, allowing for seamless communication and significantly reducing the environmental impact by minimizing the need for physical samples.

CKG, at the forefront of this movement, has embraced 3D visualization, streamlining collaboration with designers and cutting unnecessary costs and waste.

Material Innovation and Sustainability

Beyond recycled polyester from water bottles and ocean-bound waste, China's fashion industry is exploring bio-based materials like Sorona, Nylon 56, and PLA fiber. CKG has been a proponent of these materials, actively incorporating them into their product offerings. Biodegradable materials like Celys, PHA, and PLA, along with vegan leathers from various natural wastes, are also part of this sustainable fabric evolution.

Traceability and Transparency

New platforms such as Aware, FiberTrace, and TextileGenesis provide transparency in the supply chain, a critical component of sustainable manufacturing. CKG is committed to these traceability standards, ensuring that every step of production is ethical and responsible.

Addressing the 'Copycat' Myth

The misconception that China is a hub for knock-offs is becoming a relic of the past. Today, reputable brands such as Ralph Lauren and Coach, and tech giants like Apple with their iPhones, trust Chinese manufacturers with their products.

CKG values intellectual property highly, maintaining strict protocols to protect clients' designs and investments, embodying trust and respect for every collaboration.
