Technology is advancing faster as the day progresses! To keep up with the trend, fashion brands, and retailers need to be able to present their products quickly and digitally.

To make an impact among the masses, fashion brands must thoroughly understand consumers to develop and sell products that are genuinely relevant to them.

In an attempt to help them, Eindhoven-based PTTRNS helps fashion businesses digitise and better understand consumer needs to improve profitability, efficiency, and sustainability.

To further develop its platform and expand its international customer base, PTTRNS secured €2 million in a seed funding round from ECFG, an independent fund manager that advises, guides, and invests in SMEs active in the business-to-business segment.

“We are thrilled to have raised this funding and to be able to continue our mission of revolutionising the fashion industry,” said Marco van Herpen, Founder and Managing Director of “By using AI-powered personalisation and 3D visualisation techniques, we can help fashion companies become more sustainable while also increasing their bottom line.”

We are excited to be part of the growth of within the fashion industry.”
