American & Efird (A&E), Mt. Holly, N.C, has unveiled Colorlink, the company’s first mobile app with a focus on thread color.

Colorlink encourages interactive collaboration in order to connect teams across design and production channels. Available for Android and Apple phones and tablets, Colorlink was created to serve as an end-to-end tool to connect designers and production managers when selecting thread color.

“Thread color selection is a foundational element of garment design and production, but too often this decision is left to the end of the process,” says Chris Alt, A&E senior vice president, sales. “Our goal for Colorlink is to give designers and manufacturers an easy-to-use, go-to, thread-color-collaboration tool that not only provides color inspiration, but also streamlines access to our expansive global color platform and Colorlink palette.”
