Textiles are the third most polluting industry

At the same time, textiles, especially fashion, rank third among industries that pollute the environment.

McKinsey & Company’s estimates, says that the textile industry emits an average of 23 kg of greenhouse gases per 1 kg of textile produced.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation reports that in 15 years (2000 – 2015), global clothing sales doubled. Clothing represents more than 60% of the total textiles. At the same time, it is assumed that the demand for textile fibers will increase by 84%.

About 1.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide are produced annually by test production, which is 10% of global emissions and more than all international flights combined.

20% of clean water pollution by dyeing and processing products occurs directly behind textile production. Textile production also takes a lot of resources. In particular, 2,700 liters of fresh water are needed to produce one cotton T-shirt. The same amount of water can satisfy the needs of one person for 2.5 years.

This is far from the entire list of potential pollutants and harmful effects on air, water, land, plants or the environment in general. At the same time, only 1% of used clothes are recycled into new clothes.


The statistics are very sad. However, can we do something? Yes! And the key to solving pollution problems could be AI.

Challenges Before the Textile Industry

Lack of Talent

Since 2019, the popularity of fashion has fallen, due to low sustainability and unwillingness to change. Such data were published by the Business of Fashion. The industry’s lack of flexibility, low wages, unpaid internships, poor working conditions, toxic environments, and geographic restrictions all attract new workers.

Resistance Gap

As we wrote above, textile is one of the most polluting industries, because it causes about 8-10% of global carbon emissions. At the same time, consumers are demanding improvement and regulation of the “Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act” in New York. Businesses try to use environmentally friendly materials that can be recycled or regenerated. However more than 70% of emissions still come from manufacturing.

Textile Waste

Despite the significant amount of clothing production and its environmental damage, a significant part of it is taken to landfill within 12 months. Even though cotton is recyclable, less than 1% of cotton materials were recycled in 2020. To solve this problem, the fashion industry would need to create a closed system to ensure clothes circulation. This would entail design changes that would provide the ability to sort and collect.

Consumer Desires

Attracting new customers requires rapid changes that are focused on changes in the customer’s consumer interests. It is very important to intelligently use technological innovations, Artificial Intelligence or Virtual Reality to establish a more personalized experience. And at the same time, do not produce an excessive amount of unnecessary clothes.

The Imperfection of the Supply Chain

Unprecedented failures, shortages of materials, material and technical delays, or energy crises – all this is a consequence of a complex supply chain. These bottlenecks create excess production costs and directly affect the profitability of brands.

Winning the Trust of Customers

The Changing Markets Foundation classified around 60% of fashion claims as “unsubstantiated or misleading”. According to Edelman, fashion is a low-trust industry that needs to regain its sustainability and build a solid reputation as a brand.

Inclusivity and Diversity

BoF released data showing that around 42% of fashion professionals say that fashion neglects diversity and inclusion. Coresight Research states that plus sizes make up only 21% of the apparel market, while serving 70% of women. Likewise, 31% of non-binary individuals cannot wear work clothes that match their gender expression.

Size is (Not) a Problem

Size selection is still a problem for most consumers. About 62% of buyers try to find clothes that suit them, but face the problem of standardization of clothes. The variety of figures requires a variety of fits, and it is very important to fit everything correctly. Many buyers face difficulties because it is difficult for them to visualize the clothes themselves.

Inflation and Economic recession

Consumer confidence is plummeting due to high inflation, high energy prices, life crisis, and geopolitical tensions. According to KPMG, fearing an uncertain future, about two-thirds of consumers plan to reduce purchases until the first necessity in 2024. In this case, cost and resource management, automation, and smart pricing can be key.

AI’s Influence on Sustainability of Textile

Creation of Material

Automating certain aspects of design can help design materials, create templates, or coordinate dimensions. This kind of technology can help to properly dispose of waste in processing, and in conclusion, create new unique materials.

Cognex Corp

Artificial Intelligence can help minimize waste in textile production by creating patterns and improving cutting. This technology is use Cognex Corp, which was founded in Boston in 1981. The technology makes production more efficient by optimizing the structure of the fabric. In this way, it dynamically adapts the patterns to the stretching that occurs during cutting.

Cognex Corp has also developed the Cognex ViDi platform, which targets pattern recognition in the textile industry. This kind of technology minimizes waste by optimizing fabric layouts, dynamically adapts patterns to cutting, and revolutionizes fabric cutting in general.

Inspection of textile materials

An important aspect in the durability of materials and clothing is their early inspection for various types of defects. The human eye is not perfect and can make mistakes and miss important defects. That will ultimately lead to the garment ending up in the landfill.

WiseEye

The The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) offers an innovative technology for testing textile materials that works with the help of Artificial Intelligence. It can automatically and accurately detect fabric defects or color shades. All of this is done in high-speed, real-time verification environments.

The problem of automatic control that existed for the last two decades was successfully solved thanks to the integration of machine vision algorithms and deep learning methods. The mechanism presented by WiseEye achieves an accuracy of over 90%, while providing an inspection speed of up to 60 meters per minute.

In addition to inspection, the system, in accordance with industry requirements, can offer automatic marking of defects. The technology can check a variety of fabrics, even finished ones, and at the same time can identify more than 40 defects.

Predictive Analytics and Smart Manufacturing

Overcoming excess clothing remains one of the biggest obstacles to the sustainability of textiles and fashion. Manual forecasting of trends leads to irrational expenditure of time, money, or effort. In conclusion, an incorrectly forecasted trend can lead to a large number of unsold clothes, even at large discounters. These things are not recycled, they are not upcycled and in conclusion, they remain in the trash.

The constant creation of new clothes, fueling consumer purchases – creates a problem worldwide.

In doing so, you can predict consumer demand patterns based on your target market, historical data, social media trends, or any other important factor. All this is possible with the help of Artificial Intelligence. This will help you avoid the problem of human factors or uncertainty. This will allow businesses to invest resources in the right garment, fabric, style or material that will bring profit and be on trend for a long time. Factories and brands can optimize their processes and reduce the risks of excess inventory and waste.

Tommy Hilfiger Collaborated With IBM and FIT

A good example is IBM‘s collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger and the Fashion Institute of Technology’s (FIT) Infor Design and Tech Lab. The project was called Reimagine Retail. The general manager of IBM Global Consumer Industries, Steve Laughlin, said that the goal of the project is to demonstrate the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence for retailers.

In this way, FIT students could use the capabilities of Artificial Intelligence such as Computer Vision or NLP or Deep Learning. Technologies were equipped and trained on trendy data. About 100,000 patterns from fabric sites and 600,000 publicly available runway images were applied to 15,000 images of Tommy Hilfiger products. With this, students created key silhouettes, colors, prints, patterns that could inspire designers

Michael Ferraro, executive director of FIT’s Infor Design and Tech Lab says, “Machine learning analysis gave us insights into Tommy Hilfiger’s colors, silhouettes and prints that we couldn’t perceive or understand with the human mind. This allowed FIT Fashion Design students to draw inspiration from American or popular fashion trends and combine it with the ‘DNA’, If you will of the Tommy Hilfiger brand in these dimensions to create completely new design concepts”

“So a key influence was the new inspiration. Another important impact for the consumer is the ability to customize and personalize clothing without losing the style they love at Tommy Hilfiger,” he adds. Cognitive fingerprinting tools and personality analysis have provided some great opportunities to give consumers an autonomous experience. In addition to exploring how AI can influence decision-making in fashion design, we also explored tools such as social media listening and voice recognition. They can create a more personalized shopping experience based on an interactive “smart” supply chain strategy. It optimizes waste and minimizes environmental impact.”

Digital designs were presented to Tommy Hilfiger and IBM executives. In conclusion, a checkered technical jacket was chosen. Its senior specialist, Grace McCarthy, drew inspiration from AI’s vision of style, Tommy silhouettes, and popular colors.

Conclusion

Custom carving has been built into a removable futuristic checkered panel with IBM Watson’s Tone Analyzer. The device could respond in real time to customers’ sentiments, which it collected from social media accounts.

Tommy Hilfiger brand chief Avery Baker wrote in a blog post for IBM: “As a brand, we’re always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible through innovation and disruption. These young designers truly embody this spirit, demonstrating the successful integration of fashion, technology, and science.”

IBM collaborated with Australian designer Jason Grech on the Cognitive Couture collection for Melbourne Fashion Week. According to the same scheme, the content of social networks and runway fashion images were analyzed to form a data-based process.

Laughlin emphasizes that anticipation is important to maintaining sales, arguing that “For consumers, when the item they want is not immediately available in an online store, the sale will not happen.”

Permanent Sources of Raw Materials

The key elements of textiles and fashion are the search and utilization of ecological raw materials. At the same time, it is practically impossible to 100% control suppliers in compliance with environmental or labor standards.

In this case, Artificial Intelligence can determine the necessary materials or make proposals based on the design and specified fiber parameters, reliable suppliers, etc. In addition, it will help brands to measure their efforts or progress in general.

Prewave

The German company Prewave, thanks to Artificial Intelligence, allows its customers to control suppliers. It investigates any possible information about violations related to the environment, human rights, corruption and sends a report on risks even at the lower levels of the supply chain.

Source: Link

The basis of their development is an intelligent algorithm capable of identifying and analyzing information about suppliers from all available sources, such as media, social networks, and reviews. The functionality of the technology includes more than 50 languages.

The company notifies the brands immediately upon receiving any information about the risks. Accordingly, the procurement department analyzes it and decides on the application of any countermeasures. You get early warnings, with the help of Artificial Intelligence, and you can ensure a good reputation, take care of the integrity of suppliers and make your brand more eco-friendly.

The pilot project started in October 2020. At that time, brands analyzed more than 30,000 keywords and are monitoring more than 25,000 suppliers.

“Our technology allows us to screen thousands of global suppliers for sustainability risks in real time. Machine learning and automated language processing give us capabilities that we could never achieve manually: continuous risk assessment throughout the supply chain as the basis for a proactive approach by departments procurement to suppliers,” says Harald Nitschinger, Prewave co-founder and CEO.

The Fight Against Excessive Consumption

Clothes and textiles going to landfills are often caused by not being able to visualize the clothes on yourself, or by a bad customer experience. Thus, virtual assistants, chatbots, or platforms based on Artificial Intelligence will help to cope with this problem and save billions of dollars. Less waste means less damage to the environment.

Algorithms based on Artificial Intelligence can provide personnel with external recommendations that will correspond to their personal preferences and parameters. In addition, brands can offer better alternatives and encourage consumers to make green choices.

Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix helps style clothes. Within the service, stylists use the data of Artificial Intelligence and help to select clothes. At the same time, they pay attention to the reputation of brands, for example, regarding fairness in the workplace, support of the local community or foundations, as well as a code of conduct for responsible production.

The company was built on data and Artificial Intelligence almost from the very beginning. Their advantage is that, thanks to technology, they provide personalized styling and delivery services, based on the style preferences and pre-selected customers.

Stitch Fix uses generative Artificial Intelligence to analyze and summarize more than 4.5 billion text data points that customers have shared with the company. They successfully combine their own deep learning recommendation algorithms and large OpenAI language models, and use this information to make recommendations. This data is used by the stylist who prepares the final products for each client. In addition, Stitch Fix uses the Outfit Creation Model (OCM), which helps create millions of new outfit combinations per day. This helps customers not to buy extra clothes, but to create looks with what they already have. On the other hand, the use of such technology for Benood provides understanding of its client, high-quality communication and personalized service.

Companies That Have Already Implemented Artificial Intelligence in their Textile

Uniqlo

The international casual clothing brand Uniqlo is prepared to look outside the retail sector to achieve its lofty goals. Tadashi Yanai, the founder of Fast Retailing, the parent company of Uniqlo, is keen to integrate artificial intelligence into the company’s supply chain and retail strategy to establish his company as the world’s leading apparel manufacturer and retailer. He thinks expanding the business’s technological capabilities—particularly in the area of artificial intelligence (AI)—will improve customer satisfaction, increase profit margins, and lessen surplus inventory.

IQ bots, Uniqlo’s live, automated chatbots, are an illustration of the company’s early forays into the tech revolution. Clients can utilize these bots to focus their searches by providing user-generated parameters, like gender, style of clothing, or color. Search results are generated by the IQ bot as fast as users can type queries into the search bar. Even though this feature might not be artificial intelligence per se, it does demonstrate that the business is investing in creating a more customized buying experience.

Even though Uniqlo is devoting a lot of resources to its internal tech strategy, their collaboration with Jetlore, a company based in California, is producing the most innovative work. Using its artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Jetlore provides a real-time personalized shopping experience by analyzing customer data. Their “learning to rank” technology uses product data, semantic attributes, and consumer behavior analysis to predict and rank relevant content for every customer. Jetlore is assisting brands in raising customer conversions and lifetime value while lowering churn rates through content personalization. Furthermore, because this technology is real-time, the shopping experience and content presentation are tailored more and more to the interests, preferences, and purchases of the user with each new search and keystroke.

Levi Strauss & Co.

An AI chatbot is used by Levi’s virtual stylist program to help customers make purchases, and it is available around the clock. The virtual stylist, created with TrueFit technology, reduces customer dissatisfaction and returns by assisting clients in finding jeans that fit and look great. The AI is trained to ask questions like “How do you like your jeans to fit through your hips and thighs?” and takes into account variables like leg shape, rise, and stretch to provide the most accurate recommendations. It also integrates the same training that is provided to Levi’s employees.

“Levi Strauss & Co.’s digital transformation relies on AI and AI depends on enabling employees across all facets of the organization to master what technology can do for them,” Chief AI and Strategy Officer Dr. Katia Walsh said. “They needn’t fear AI but, rather, embrace it. I believe that most people can learn the skills to be a data scientist, and it’s up to companies to create opportunities for employees to obtain and apply those skills.” – they wrote in their blog.

Strengthening Creative Processes

The potential that artificial intelligence can unlock is what gives it its power. The capacity to find new opportunities and possibilities while freeing up time spent on boring tasks. The design coordinator at Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co.), Ron Pritipaul, was searching for a fresh approach to advance that creative process.

Ron improved an algorithm by utilizing current technology to incorporate a neural network made especially for clothing. To name a few uses for this algorithm, it could identify pockets, define a garment’s edges, and store the image in a single layer for designing.

Ron decided to create a new Levi’s® Trucker jacket to test his algorithm. He drew inspiration from his love of art history. Among the more than thirty references that sprang to mind were the classics: Van Gogh’s Starry Night, David Hockney’s Apple Tree, and Jasper Johns’ Corpse and Mirror II. The program was able to define different aspects of the artwork, such as edges, colors, and brush strokes, using the same algorithm. Then, in a matter of seconds, it could replicate thousands of different design options by simply clicking a button.

Ron could refine his selections, perfect designs, and add the much-needed creative human touch to the process with thousands of options to choose from. Although the program’s ability to produce thousands of renderings in a matter of seconds is extremely useful. Its real brilliance lies in its capacity to provide designers with ideas that they might not have considered during the conventional process. Because of this, AI adds a great deal of value for traditional designers.

In addition to developing his new abilities, Ron created an app to assist other designers and himself. He resolves a problem that arises frequently: matching thread colors.
