Backbone PLM was created by designers, for designers to empower rapidly growing fashion and apparel brands.

Growing Brands, Built with Backbone

Our team has worked for the world’s leading fashion brands and even owned our own labels. We know what it’s like managing multiple production cycles per year and innovating on style, price point, functionality, and sustainability.

Backbone gives your team what they need most – time. Our cloud-based platform empowers efficiency and increases productivity with tools that help fashion and apparel brands design, develop, and produce goods smarter, faster, and at scale.

Built for Fashion & Apparel Brands

The apparel industry faces constant demand for new products, with some brands going through as many as five production cycles a year. Consider the evolution of global trends, consumer expectations, and the need to compete with other companies through style, innovation, price point, functionality, and sustainability.

Backbone empowers brands to navigate these unique industry challenges efficiently and effectively. Here’s how:


Our powerful Adobe Illustrator plugin enables designers to sync artboards to interconnected libraries with dynamically updated data – your central source of truth for products which can be accessed by anyone on your team, anytime.


Create tech packs in minutes, keep BOMs current as you iterate your designs, and gather feedback and revisions in one place to maintain quality and increase your speed to market.


Enable data-backed decision-making with reporting tools that provide visibility and clarity across seasons and product lines. Ensure your product data is always up-to-date across the platform. 

“Backbone is a very intuitive system to use – it’s great for storing data in one centralized area.”
