Byborre is an Amsterdam based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of material development, functionality and aesthetics through engineered knits.
The self-proclaimed "Masters of Knit" may be known for their collaborations, but the studio also produces its own line, which takes a radical approach to textiles. By thinking about the future of people and the planet, BYBORRE creates fabrics for the next generation while ignoring the traditional, the wasteful and the inflexible, and instead question everything, from the manufacturing chain to the creative process.
BYBORRE textile engineering and design intelligence on full display, the Weightmap Sweater is a functional patchwork that utilizes the inherent qualities of different weights and types of knits and targets them specifically to where they make most sense on the body. The Edition9™ iteration of this sweater is predominantly done in the new OTM™ knit and features woven reinforcement panels at the shoulders and elbows.
