FabricGenie is a revolutionary service that allows customers to create custom-designed fabrics using AI technology. Whether you’re looking for the perfect pattern for your drapes, blinds, or loose fabric, FabricGenie has you covered. With the power of generative AI, customers can describe the type of design they want or upload images of their room or color schemes to find suitable patterns.
FabricGenie offers customers four different options to choose from, and they can refine their pattern description until they find the perfect result. This innovative service gives customers full control over the look of their home, breaking free from traditional interior design limitations.
Carl Fisher, the director of The Millshop Online, the British company behind FabricGenie, believes that this AI technology empowers everyone to unleash their imagination when it comes to home decor. In the past, interior design was dictated by certain designers, limiting creativity. But now, FabricGenie opens up a world of possibilities for every room and every person.
FabricGenie has already received some unique and unusual requests since its launch. Customers have asked for designs featuring former British Prime Minister Theresa May surrounded by food, as well as gothic designs inspired by mysticism and witchcraft. However, traditional floral and striped designs remain the most popular choices.
To ensure that nothing offensive or involving trademarked brands is printed, FabricGenie has a human layer of moderation. Additionally, instead of replacing interior designers, the service has found that professionals actively use FabricGenie. Interior designers can specify exact Pantone color names for their projects or create custom designs based on their client’s hobbies or interests.
FabricGenie goes beyond just virtual representation. For a small fee, the company offers fabric samples printed with the chosen design, allowing customers to see and feel the finished product before placing an order. The orders are fulfilled using high-quality Mimaki 330 series digital printers capable of printing approximately 250 meters of fabric per day.
Despite the typical low resolution of AI-generated images, FabricGenie has found that the image quality is sufficient without the need for technical fixes. The AI model used by FabricGenie produces high-resolution images directly.
Currently, FabricGenie offers drapes, blinds, and loose fabric, but the company’s director, Carl Fisher, envisions expanding the AI system to other products such as upholstery and even apparel. However, before venturing into apparel, they need to solve the challenges of fixing and washing the fabric to ensure quality.
