In 2023, innovative textile platform BAKERMAT will open its doors in the creative heart of Antwerp.
Bakermat is the symbiosis between a fabric store, a virtual fabric library and a materials agency; a place where innovation, digitization and artistic creation meet. A journey where traceability and transparency are key incentives to improve the status quo in fashion.
We are proud ambassadors of the products we sell, working closely with artisan weavers, sustainable pioneers and textile innovators.
The virtual fabric library is a subscription based online platform with access to 3D textures, the fabrics of virtual fashion.
Every fabric that is available in our fabric store will have a virtual twin on this platform. The digitization of textiles is also offered as a service for fashion companies and textile manufacturers.
The fabric store is a physical retail location in the heart of Antwerp.
Consumers can buy fabrics, trims and tools, as well get supplier information and technical advice on their projects.
The material agency consults (fashion) companies and designers on sourcing suppliers and production houses. The virtual fabric library is used as a digital sourcing platform to optimize the sourcing process for clients.
Our mission is to empower creators to design accountable and fair, reshaping the industry from the bottom up.
Our vision is to build a transparent textile universe where it is easy to create responsibly.
INSPIRE, by making innovative materials and technology accessible, we want to inspire the next generation of creators and make them more resilient for the future of the fashion industry.
CONNECT, through our store and digital platform we connect creators, companies, professionals and innovators to lay a foundation for the future of textiles.
DIGITIZE, by offering textile digitization services, workshops in virtual prototyping and a library of virtual fabrics, we support the digital transition in fashion.
SUPPLY, in a physical textile shop, virtual fabric library and material agency we supply creators and businesses with responsibly sourced materials.
EDUCATE, by making supply chain information accessible and organizing workshops, talks and events with industry professionals and fashion schools, we offer education on textiles.
RESHAPE, by laying a foundation for the future of textiles, we are creating a place for a community to discuss, rethink and reshape the fashion industry.
