About BYBORRE

Learn what we are all about

Since 2015, textile innovation studio BYBORRE has been rewriting the rules of responsible textile creation by digitizing the design- and production process and introducing Textile-as-a-Service with their platform BYBORRE Create™. Launched in 2020, Create™ serves as the portal between the physical and digital worlds of the textile industry – enabling brands, designers and creators around the world to design bespoke and responsible textiles from pixel to needle. Providing direct access to textile creation technology and a transparent overview of the textile’s journey at every step of the process, Create™ puts creative freedom and control over impact back into the hands of the creator.

In 2021, BYBORRE opened the very first WoTO™ (Window of Textile Opportunities) showroom in Amsterdam, marking their next step towards an open-source and transparent ecosystem to drastically change the textile industry as we know it today.

About Borre Akkersdijk

Borre Akkersdijk is a Dutch textile designer and the co-founder and creative director of textile innovation studio BYBORRE. Born in Wamel, the Netherlands, Akkersdijk took fashion design courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009 while also working at Paris-based design and trend consultancy Studio Edelkoort. He started what became the foundation of BYBORRE in October 2010, initially consulting for brands such as Nike and Louis Vuitton before deciding to focus solely on the development of his now signature 3D knitted fabrics. In 2012, he was awarded Young Designer of the Year at the Dutch Design Awards. Research into the future of fashion and integrated technology resulted in presentations at South by Southwest, Bejing Designweek and Salone del Mobile Milano and publications in Wired magazine and Fast Company Magazine.

Since then Akkersdijk has worked on building a studio filled with machines and a team of specialists from all corners of the textile industry to grow BYBORRE into what it is today.
