The Makers

Brad Jamison is the sole master lace-braider in the country.  His singular braided and patterned textile innovations are the result of more than a decade of trials and breakthroughs.  In that time, he’s generated a catalogue of more than 1,000 original patterns.
 
In 2007, following an exhaustive U.S. search for flexible, stable material to enable Enter Play Sports’ fabrication of its oversized shuttlecocks—Bird Ball and Turkey Ball—Brad acquired a first-generation computer-controlled Braiding Machine from China, capable of producing material to his specifications.

Brad is dedicated to sustainable production—limiting piecework and material waste—and is deeply invested in the resurgence of the country’s leadership in revolutionary fiber technology and textile manufacturing.
