The platform Carlin Creative has always dreamt of. A reality, thanks to Sewwand!

Switch from trend content to materials sourcing with just one click.


When we get excited about a platform at Carlin, it’s not shoes we’re talking about. No, it’s a new digital platform combining amazing creative content with a brilliant service!

What’s more, we aren’t even keeping it to ourselves! Our Trend Thinking approach puts above-and-beyond service and making your life easier at the heart of every client relationship, which is why we are sharing it with you, for free.


So it is with great pride that we announce our partnership with the Italian platform Sewwand, the first global platform dedicated to materials sourcing and showcasing European textile manufacturers.

We got together and knitted a few algorithms, stitched a few lines of code into the pages of our digital trend books and… ta-da! We are connected so as to offer you a fantastic, free new service.

No samples, no deal? No problem!

Collecting and sourcing professionals, rejoice! Your prayers have been answered. Whether you’re a buyer or a product or marketing manager, Carlin Creative is giving you online access to this digital Aladdin’s cave, to help you source the denim, woven fabric or lace for your next collection.

The first application that we publish in partnership with Sewwand will come with the magic button: “Get a free sample“. In other words, you’ll be able to order samples of your favourite materials with just one click from the “Materials” pages of the trend books. You’ll then receive your swatch samples by post from the supplier, free of charge. Really, we promise!

The first trend book with this free service will be our #KIDS AH1819 publication, which will be presented at the Première Vision show in February 2017. We’ll be quickly extending this service to other publications which are gradually joining the range of new services we have in the pipeline…

You’ve heard of Click & Collect… Well this is Click & Get Free! What’s not to love?
