Design Research Institute
The Pan-Pacific Design Research Institute was established in 2015 in order to take the big leap to becoming an ODM, beyond OEM. Since establishment, the institute has dedicated its efforts to predicting upcoming design trends in the fashion market, as well as research and development of materials with trend-sensitive designs and price competitiveness.
Furthermore, the institute analyzes body shape by race and age; and considers buyer-specific patterns to make technological offers which satisfy both B2B and B2C customers.
Analysis of design trends by season and color, and intra-departmental sharing of the results have maximized Pan-Pacific's competitiveness. Creative design convergence across separate product lines has promoted innovation and helped us achieve customer satisfaction.
We strive not only in the research of tried-and-true fabrics and materials, but in the development of new materials as well. These efforts have led to the development of state-of-the-art patterns, reductions in cost, and increases in functionality.
As of March 2016, the Pan-Pacific Fabric Library, or PFL for short, houses nearly 32,000 material samples. The PFL is run by a material-integrated operating system in order to offer buyers the best materials per item. In particular, the PFL works with the SAP to implement an integrated management of materials, partners, and supply chains. This integrated system adds to our sensitivity to trends and buyers' needs, and creates a synergy effect in our producing power due to its exceptional searching, sorting, and materials assessment capabilities.
Snail Yard was inspired by the image of snails in an incubator, growing like the ideas in our design and materials R&D. Unlike the clich?d showrooms of other companies, Pan-Pacific has employed a black-and-white base to the spatial construction in order to make our sample products prominent. The Snail Yard is a library-like showroom housing nearly 6,000 samples both internally produced and in-market (as of March 2016), and is a point of pride for Pan-Pacific.
PRAUDEN Research Institute
Prauden has long held the title as the market leader in feathers. Its R&D is top-notch and has not failed to meet its customers' needs. Its goal continues to be the development of high-quality, multi-functional down offered at a reasonable price, to the ever-changing demands of the consumer.
Carbon Nanotube Coated Down Prauden's Carbon Nanotube Coated Down is down coated with carbon nanotubes.
This technology saves on the thermal energy expended and thus preserves heat, while the anti-static finish allows for a more comfortable fit.
Phytoncide Coated Down Prauden's Phytoncide Coated Down is a product treated with microencapsulated phytoncide taken from homegrown cypress.
Its anti-bacterial and deodorizing effects help neutralize environmental toxins and make cleaning easy.
Citrus·Phytoncide Coated Down Prauden's Citrus o Phytoncide Coated Down is down microencapsulated with the famous Jeju island's citrus extract and phytoncide extracted from homegrown cypress.
Known to be effective in reducing stress, the citrus gives off a fresh scent while the superb anti-bacterial powers of phytoncide provide an enhanced protection against pollutants.
Hydrophobic Coated Down Prauden's Hydrophobic Coated Down is treated with a special solution to prevent contamination due to moisture and grease.
The coating keeps contaminants from sticking to the surface, facilitates drying by reducing absorption of humidity, and diminishes wrinkling and malformation with excellent resilience.
Hydrophobic Eco Coated Down Prauden's Hydrophobic Eco Coated Down is a product of the highest hydrophobic performance and durability.
It is coated with a special solution to prevent contamination. In addition, the coat is an eco-friendly chemical which blocks substances harmful to the human body, as well as to the environment in its entire course of production and application.
