BYBORRE Create™ introduces Textile-as-a-Service

BYBORRE is merging the physical and digital world of the textile industry with the design tool Create™ serving as the portal between both. We are rewriting the rules of responsible textile creation, by digitizing the design- and production process and the introduction of Textile-as-a-Service. With technology at the core of our business, we are committed to democratize the supply chain through our transparent ecosystem of trailblazers, partners and creators. 

Create™ is a digital design software that gives brands, designers and creators the ownership back over the design- and production process, with direct access to textile creation technology and the capabilities of circular knitting machines via an online design tool. Offering a service as solution and enabling creators to make less but more meaningful and responsible products. 

There is nothing we use more than textiles on and around the body, but often the process before the end-product is not discussed, revealed or simply unknown. In Create™ the supply chain is reversed and thereby the design- and production process works in the opposite direction. Instead of finding a textile that matches the design, creators now can design from the yarn up, making more conscious decisions along the way. 

Smart and conscious textiles can now be created in three easy steps: 


Define the functionality of your textile and the fit for the purpose of the end product, whether it will be used for apparel, interior or automotive. Each textile can have different properties, such as UV protection, odour resistance or durability. 


This brand new feature makes it possible to create your own color combinations without the complexity of choosing the right yarn colors. Your color palette is automatically translated to yarn combinations based on the availability of our in-house yarn stock, avoiding large and heavy dyeing methods. 


From 3D patterns, to unique illustrations, fill patterns, multicolor knitting or integrated text, artwork adds another level of depth to your textile. Upload one or multiple layers of artwork, rearrange and play with them to make your textile uniquely yours. 

Create™ provides a transparent overview of the textile’s full journey at every step of the process, offering sustainable solutions, innovations and creative tools. Find out more about Create™ here

BYBORRE combines technology and textile expertise to bring a new standard to the industry by unlocking material innovation, sharing its vast experience on circular knitting and making their transparent supply-chain available to all clients. They believe that, without the much-needed transparency, positive change is impossible.

Borre Akkersdijk and Arnoud Haverlag founded BYBORRE in 2015 to realize their ultimate mission to inspire and enable an entire generation of creators to make better and more responsible textiles for everyday products. Together with their international team of 50+ specialists, they took on the responsibility to push the boundaries of the conventional textile industry, make responsible textiles more accessible through material innovation, digital design services, and on-demand production.

The company previously raised €3.2 million in a 2020 series A investment round, funding the accelerated development of on-demand design tool Create™. Create™ has welcomed over 1000+ users and 300+ brands worldwide (2022) including Natuzzi, Herman Miller, Palace Skateboards and Porter Yoshida & Co.

To further expand its platform, BYBORRE introduced Textiles™ in 2022. Textiles is a growing library of ready-to-order textiles created from traceable materials and suitable for a wide range of end-use cases, as opposed to the industry wastefully made to stock production status quo. The quality is primarily driven by choosing materials that support longevity, made with BYBORRE’s signature circular knitting techniques and curated stock of certified yarns.
