Custom Colors

Our closet is full of all different kinds of sewing thread, you just couldn’t find the right color when your coat becomes unstitched or ripped off.
The product front sensor will scan through your cloth and detect the cloth color. Once the color is detected, it will transmit to the build-in painter that will color the white thread placed inside the machine. The painted thread will then be cut into the exact length and “sewing ready”. In addition, you can also set up the color based on your personal preference. With “Custom Colors”and little imagination, everyone can become the dress designer!
