H|HThe first 3-D designed Zero Waste Whole Garment collection
The first 3-D designed Zero Waste Whole Garment collection.
Starting with the need to develop new technologies for textile and garment production for which the concept of waste becomes redundant, the textile industry needs to re-think its manufacturing workflow to be more sustainable and competitive.
The innovation in the H|H Zero Waste Manufacturing System lies in the integration of two different textile technologies (customised spinning production and zero waste weaving technology) into one zero waste whole garment
production process. This project aims at changing existing textile production infrastructures through a completely new design workflow.
HILO controls on-demand yarn quantity and qualities, McQuillan designs zero-waste garments directly off the loom. Both technologies address many of the problems of garment production and have the potential to provide new workflows for local micro-factories. The idea is to use software to translate digital patterns into different yarn thicknesses varying from very light to heavy.
STUDIO HILO (Germany)
Established in 2018, Studio HILO has been developing diverse open-source prototypes for digital spinning systems. Their software and hardware allow professionals to adapt industrial yarn productions to their needs, making production more local and flexible.
HOLLY MCQUILLAN (Sweden)
Holly McQuillan develops methods for designing garments that can be constructed in 2D and when cut become 3D articles of clothing.
