3D weaving

Weaving products directly on the machine

Our Master Jacquard Designer is trained as an artist and therefor thinks like on. She is specialised in the field of 3D weaving and technical solutions. With our custom made machines that have the most precise looms in Europe, with over 12.500 precision point in 150cm of width,  we can create 3D woven products directly on the machine. We can split our warp into different layers by which we can create multi layered, 3D woven textiles.

 

Weaving seamless finished products

We strongly believe in the power of 3D weaving, which makes it possible to weave fashion and medical garments, interior products or accessories and replaceable sleeves for furniture or moulds for (the automotive) industries or prototypes directly on the machine, off the loom. It makes it possible to weave seamless finished products, this cuts out the conventional confection of products. Seams, pockets and sleeves can be programmed directly into the fabric.

 

3D weaving pioneers

As one of the pioneering partners in 3D weaving, we developed in 2015 the first 3D woven bag, which was exhibited during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.

During the Covid-19 corona crisis, we developed a 3D woven washable mouth mask for the consumer market and developed a 3D woven medical gown prototype.

 

3D weaving research projects

We work continuously on research projects focussing on 3D weaving. In cooperation with designers and researchers we develop us further into this field to hopefully make it a realistic option for fashion designers in the near future.
