Yes, BYBORRE makes clothes but they consider themselves more a textile innovation studio than a regular knitwear label, aiming to research and improve textiles and fashion as a whole.
Brainchild of co-founder and designer, Borre Akkersdijk, who trained as a designer in both his home country of the Netherlands and New York. Borre’s fascination with yarns and trims lead him to studying fashion and the performance of various fabrics to wear.
Started in 2010 and based in Amsterdam, BYBORRE has continually explored the extent to which they can manipulate the knits they’ve become known for. Adhering to the ethos of “form follows function”, BYBORRE uses manual techniques and circular knitting machines to craft unique textures and patterns.
