Pioneering The Future of Textiles
By now everyone has heard of 3D printing. Yet, how many of you are familiar with 3D knitting? Today’s digital technology is on the brink of revolutionizing the textile industry in much the same way. It is pioneering the future of textiles using sustainable and naturally-sourced materials, a robust and easy-to-use design platform, and decentralized manufacturing. This end-to-end solution for on-demand, fully customizable production is also expanding knits into new markets such as embedded sensors, automotive, and furniture. Localized hubs bring manufacturing back onshore to neighboring communities and cut the carbon footprint of transporting materials around the globe – better serving customers, designers, and brands, while reducing waste up to 98%.
