Hundreds of the world’s leading dyes houses choose natific’s Color Accreditation Program (CAP) to cut out the common process of lab dip submission and to achieve straight to production privileges. natific randomly selects a mill within the CAP program to feature with a short interview. We also take this opportunity to welcome new and returning clients.
HOW THIS TEXTILE MILL REDUCED THEIR DELIVERY TIME WITH 7 DAYS
Mill short factsName: Best Pacific Textile Ltd.
Location: Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, China
Focus area: Polyamide and polyester knitted fabric for underwear, swimsuit, sportswear, and shoes fabric
Brand/retail customers within the CAP: Under Armour, Target, Land’s End, and Lululemon
Best Pacific Textile needed to increase their speed to market
To ensure continuous improvements in the color processes, the team at Best Pacific Textile in China conducted internal meetings and carried out color training on a regular basis. However, the mill still experienced difficulties to match brightness, depth and metamerism, and to meet the fastness requirement of their customer’s color standard.
With the increasing pressure for shorter delivery times and high quality requirements from their brand and retailer customers, the mill realized that their actions were not enough.
Best Pacific Textile took a new approach to meet their customer’s demands.
Let’s speak to the mill and find out what they did to reduce their delivery time with 7 days and increase their color quality.
natific: What made you choose natific’s Color Accreditation Program to speed your color process?
Best Pacific Textile: We heard about the CAP program from our customer Under Armour. At first, we wondered whether it would be beneficial to us, but we agreed to give it a chance. We joined the program in September 2015 and now we work this way not only with Under Armour but also with our customers Target, Land’s End, and Lululemon.

a lot of time for everyone.”

natific: What is your favorite feature of the CAP?
Best Pacific Textile: The team at natific give us many useful suggestions and advice of how to solve color quality problems that occur in our lab and production. Also when needed due to process technical limitations, natific helped us how to explain and assure our customers that for a certain color on a specific material this was the best we could achieve.
I also think it’s great of the natific team to give us technical and system advice for systems we use that comes from other brands than natific. We really liked and found useful the summary of the new season’s colors that natific helped us with. Sorry that was more than one favorite feature!
natific: How has the service helped you achieve your business goals?
Best Pacific Textile: We use the natific system ColorWarehouse to monitor our bulk consistency. With this system, we can then continually improve our bulk quality.
We use ColorWarehouse for all customers within the CAP program but also internally to monitor production accuracy and precision.
Since we started to use Master Digital Standards (qtx files) instead of physical color samples, everything is more efficient and reliable. There is no more confusion about the master standard, and the digital standard do not change by storage like physical samples.
This is a plot from the ColorWarehouse where Best Pacific Textile can see that all except one submitted sample of a specific color is accurate and precise. At the same time, Best Pacific’s retailer and brand customers can easily view all color data related to them.
natific: Can you give any indications of how much time you save in the development of new colors by being a part of the CAP?
Best Pacific Textile: Yes! We obviously save time and cost with self-approval of lab and straight-to-production privileges. It takes at least 10 days for a customer to approve the lab dip, but now we can spend 3 days from start to finish.
We and our customers within the CAP program accept digital color data, it has reduced the color difference issues that we had before and saves a lot of time for everyone.
natific: What is the single biggest reason you would recommend the Color Accreditation Program to brands/retailers and their mills?
Best Pacific Textile: Digital data to evaluate color is more objective! This says everything… the amount of time, cost, and waste that you can save.
natific: Thank you for taking the time sharing your experience with us!
Best Pacific Textile: Thank you!
We are happy to welcome below new and returning retailers, brands, vendors and mills as natific software and service clients. We are looking forward to our new and continued relationships.
