Here’s a close up so you can see the detail; obviously laser cutting is required for intricacy.
Lastly, here’s another design. The point here being that one could screen print the goods with a custom design to incorporate the cutting design (pattern) of the garment. What’s neat about this is that this textile design is a readily employed repeat.
Of course I don’t suggest we can all give up and go home now but the concept is interesting. There’s still the matter of designing for sizes; I can’t imagine that goods would be custom loomed to size for each size, otherwise you run into the existing limitations of filling in a marker. In other words, this can work for a limited range of sizes and styles -this is not a bifurcated garment- but I think it’s an interesting niche that someone could profitably employ for themselves.
