3D Printing: A New Trend For Textile Materials

D-house – a pioneering laboratory where research and development is carried out using cutting-edge technology to inspire and guide designers in the discovery of new fashion application – has been able to realize direct-to-textile 3D printing technology. The resulting collection – Knitting the Future. 3D Printing meets Merino Wool – has been developed together with The Woolmark Company, a non-profit authority on Australian wool and Stratasys, a global leader in 3D printing.

D-house was created by Dyloan – a leading Italian manufacturer in the high-end fashion sector since 1987. He is known for adopting new technologies for design applications with fashion brands. For this latest collection, three international designers and four students from the Royal College of Art in London successfully 3D printed unique patterns directly onto Merino wool knitwear.
