The retail giant wants to manufacture garments based on demand, not on the need to fill up warehouse space

Amazon wants to make the process of selling clothing to customers more cost-effective by implementing an on-demand system that would enable them to manufacture clothing only when order has been placed. The company originally submitted a patent for this idea back in December 2015.

Traditionally, a clothing company would pre-manufacture items to be placed on store shelves to be purchased, which would often result in it sitting on the shelves for weeks.

The new automated system would manufacture the orders as they come in, with a camera observing the process for any problems, and signaling technicians for assistance in the event that a red flag is raised.
