THE CAP PROJECT
EXAMPLE OF INNOVATION PROCEDURE
Over the last 30 years, the cap industry hasn’t evolved much. Caps have been done the same way, a process that hasn’t changed since the 1980s: 6 or 5 panels, different materials, fancy front logos, but still too much labour on its production.
 
In this case we use the full capabilities of weft knitting technology: Pivot lines to create a cap made in shape; Pattern selection to create an open mesh in the back, and material combination to create a flexible hat that adapts to the head due to the melting yarn and provide good support which keeps the cap in shape.
 
In order to further innovate, we changed the traditional metal top to a TPU HF piece. In addition, we made a dipping TPU option for a more stream look.
MIT MEDIA LAB

In order to push the boundaries of knitting we collaborate wit MIT media lab every summer.

This allows us to spend a month brainstorming and developing new knitting projects with other experts in different fields.
