Hemster is modernizing the tailoring industry by providing alteration and tailoring services to brand name retailers across the country. Their mission is to provide a unique tailoring experience while also revitalizing the tailoring community. Hemster wants to make retailers create a tailored size from the off-the-rack inventory by using the Hemster Perfect Fit Platform. Hemster’s RulerSticker allows customers to capture their measurements at home, or wherever they shop. The Hemster Platform consequently collects personalized fit data to offer an omni-channel solution.
