“Knowledge is power. Knowledge shared is power multiplied.” – Robert Boyce, London School of Economics
Over the last 25 years, Apparel Resources (AR) has been diligently sharing knowledge gathered from the interviews and discussions with experts with hands-on experience of working in the industry. Many industry experts have contributed to the knowledge base on a wide variety of topics. “The knowledge shared is critical not only for professionals in the industry to sharpen their understanding, but also for the student community, as there are practical insights on subjects that they learn in their curriculum,” says Prabir Jana, Shahi Chair Professor, Industry 4.0, NIFT.
AR is extremely honoured to offer these priceless and timeless expert insights to the industry as e-books. A lot of work has gone into compiling contributions by industry professionals into e-books under 13 core topics. Each e-book addresses the aspects of the subject with case studies, industry inputs and technology solutions. The chapters and writers have been selected after careful evaluation of relevancy.
The current 13 topics available on Google Play E-book are a comprehensive rundown on issues of concern in apparel manufacturing. “These e-books reflect the journey of Apparel Resources to provide knowledge to production teams and owners alike, guiding them through the shop floor for greater efficiencies and effective management. They are a compilation of years of hard work so that all can benefit from the experience of experts, as they share their learnings,” shares Deepak Mohindra, Chairman & Editor-in-Chief, Apparel Resources.

The e-books will not only share information on various subjects, but will also provide answers to many questions. “These e-books are a way to give back to the industry all the knowledge that AR and its technical magazine StitchWorld have gained over the years. We are privileged to have so many international and national subject experts represented in the pages of the e-books,” says Deepak, adding that many more such e-books are in the pipeline.
