ABOUT BYBORRE

BYBORRE is an Amsterdam based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of material development, functionality and aesthetics through engineered knits. Over the past six years they have worked with clients such as Nike, Wings + Horns, The North Face, and Daniel Arsham.

Signature to BYBORRE are the innovative hand-rendered techniques that, through direct interaction with their circular knitting machines, give the studio full creative freedom to play with patterns, colours, and textures within their fabrics. Designing from the yarn up allows BYBORRE to discover new possibilities both within their own collections and for leading brands. The archetypical clothing pieces in the studio’s own label tell an important story about the relationship between material and machine, along with introducing a new approach to fashion where process and product are equally important.

This article on Freunde von Freunden about BYBORRE and interview with founding creative director Borre Akkersdijk gives a nice glimpse of the studio.
