Tensengra's patterned fabric comprises one group of filaments working together to exist within a fluid balanced state. The fabric illustrates the benefits of being in balanced tension for comfort and utility.
We've imagined and produced the fabric that comprises the body of AMBI. Our patented ALX patterned fabric provides an example of elastic-free conformability and support using only patterned filaments that mold to contours naturally. These fabrics are a huge step forward for carbon reduction and environmentally friendly practices in fashion.
AMBI's fabric innovation is made possible by re-purposed manufacturing machines that were invented a hundred years ago to make copies of handmade Torchon lace. These machines are still being used to make bands of lace overseas. In 2007 our partner, TEF Braids brought one of these machines to the USA. Since then everyday has been about learning, inventing and testing new fabrics and designs.
Its taken over a decade to develop AMBI. In that time we've created a system to design zonally patterned fabrics, refined a method of manufacture using lace braiding machines that would accommodate accurate sizing, and invented a new fabric that is conformal without elastic.
We believe this low impact, virtually zero waste manufacturing process will change the way things are made, felt and disposed of, contributing to a greener future for the planet and setting a new standard for utility and comfort.
