About

Code the tools of production. Join the Stitch Revolution.

Valentina is open source pattern drafting software, designed to be the foundation of a new stack of open source tools to remake the garment industry. Valentina uses parametric design to combine pattern formulas with measurements to create custom sized patterns.

Valentina patterns are shareable and remixable, and can be used by any sewist or manufacturer for garment production.

Valentina’s open data formats and and collaborative culture enables independent designers to become ethically profitable, and can empower designers focused on eco fashion and slow fashion. Valentina can enable individual regional styles and local garment districts to return.

Small batch and custom sized clothing manufacturing is essential to create a sustainable future, preserve small to medium sized textile spinning and weaving manufacturers, enable independent and small designers and manufacturers to scale up to make a decent living, rebuild local garment districts, and reduce or eliminate slave labor.

Valentina is available for Linux, Mac, and Windows.
