Loom-State3D Woven Garments
To make sustainability profitable, merging two separate industries, textiles and fashion, into one streamlined process that will reduce material waste and shorten supply chains.
This project re-imagines how clothes are made by creating fully fashioned, seamless woven garments engineered on the loom rather than through a cut & sew manufacturing process, resulting in reduced material waste, resource usage, shortened supply chains and ultimately tackling sustainability. Access to industrial jacquard looms, CAD programs, and technicians will allow the designer to produce manufacture-ready prototypes and a system to duplicate the process. This project focuses on trousers at this stage. The project’s angle is to focus on scalability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness by using machines already in the industry.
