A mechanical adjustment of the loom allows the shaping of the textile directly while weaving. This helps to eliminate waste and processes of sewing to create forms.
Here it takes place on a sample size scale for the development of prototypes, showing the versatility of this technique. These samples illustrate how new forms can be created, opposed to the traditional way of using seams. This is due to being able to control every thread singularly and therefore shaping the fabric itself.
