Producers of physical goods require consistency over the short and long term. The ultimate test of whether our tooling facilitates, or impedes, coordination Ultimately, the production of physical goods This collaborative and custom way of working flows well in the digital sphere, but the production of physical goods requires more reliable patterns.
Future—there are few, if any, open libraries for garment patterns, yet most garments are built the same. A pattern maker might have their jacket copied and rereleased thousands of times and never receive compensation or credit. Since we are building MetaGEAR in collaboration with innovative pattern makers, we are working to put the pattern data itself (SVGs) on-chain, or at least point to it from our NFTs, establishing provenance and also promoting iterative, credited design. Fashion ultimately will play out its own open source rebellion which, we believe, will revolutionize the industry and the craft.
