2019 WEAR Pre-Conference Workshop

From Prototype to Product: Testing and Certifying an E-Textile

Presented by:  LOOMIA Technologies, Inc.

  • Madison Maxey, Founder and Technical Lead
  • Ezgi Ucar, Chief Product Officer

Loomia aims to provide a 3.5 hour workshop at WEAR 2019 which explores getting an e-textile product to market. The workshop will begin with a prototyping deep dive, exploring how techniques used in prototyping may or may not scale. We will then dive into teardowns of products on the market, reviewing their production techniques and discussing robustness, scalability and automation for these methods.


The session will round out with an exploration of standards and certifications as well as making manufacturer partnerships to get a product to market. Attendees will walk away with a well-rounded framework for developing an e-textile product that can eventually get to market.
