1. What is card explorer

Card explorer is a product development library that is completely open-source and encourages sharing ideas, collaborations and creating community-driven standards. We believe that for the fashion industry to survive and push innovation, every one of us should seriously consider contributing back to the industry. 

Therefore we created Explore library where expert fashion designers, technical designers, product developers and renowned standard suppliers like Pantone, Alvanon and YKK can open up their assets and contribute their expertise in form of cards that Techpacker users can easily pack/copy directly on their techpacks.


What this means is together we will contribute and share our experiences and expertise not only to help the industry but to learn and collaborate with each other to make fashion products: better, faster and together.
