Editor’s Notes: The BYBORRE studio is a material development hub, production lab, and design studio all wrapped into one entity. It’s “committed to improving the wider industry and leading the way when it comes to best practices,” which ties into the new TDK (Textile Development Kit) Edition for SS20, in collaboration with the Woolmark Company.
The TDK Edition reflects the way the label develops inventive textiles, and serves as a marker for opening up these tools and textiles to others worldwide. BYBORRE as a label is, in a way, the first customer of the Textile Lab, and the SS20 collection is a result of the design team utilizing the tools on offer to others, who will be able to create their own textiles using the studio’s techniques.
The Merino capsule is a key aspect of the TDK Edition, created using a unique combination of un-dyed Merino wool, Coolmax yarn, and NILIT Heat yarn made from coffee bean shell charcoal and nylon.
