A material library is a collection of physical samples, swatches, or digital files of materials that are commonly used in product manufacturing. These materials can include textiles, plastics, metals, woods, and other materials that are used to create finished products. A material library can be a physical space or a digital database that contains information about the properties, availability, and cost of different materials.
Fashion is not just about style and creativity; it is a complex business that relies heavily on the raw materials that make up every piece of clothing.

A material library can also include a range of niche and sustainable materials that are increasingly being used in product manufacturing. These materials include:
Recycled materials: Materials such as recycled plastics, metals, and textiles that are made from post-consumer waste or industrial scrap.
Biodegradable materials: Materials such as biodegradable plastics, bamboo, and plant-based fibers that can break down naturally over time.
Sustainable woods: Woods that are harvested from sustainably managed forests or from reclaimed sources, such as salvaged timber.
Alternative leathers: Materials such as vegan leather, mushroom leather, and apple leather that provide an eco-friendly alternative to traditional animal-based leather.
Innovative materials: Materials such as 3D-printed plastics, smart textiles, and conductive fabrics that incorporate new technologies into product design.
Building a comprehensive and updated Material Library, both in digital and physical formats, is essential for brands to have a clear idea of material prices, minimum order quantities (MOQs), lead times, and the quantity of materials required for the next bulk production. By maintaining an up-to-date Material Library, brands can ensure that they have a centralized and organized resource of material information, enabling them to make informed decisions about which materials to use for their products.
