Announcing our next chapter | Meet Vega™

Revolutionizing fashion supplychains

Building the world's first 3D weaving technology for apparel

Since day one, we’ve been dreaming big: Change the way the fashion industry thinks about supply and demand. Wasteful overproduction is incompatible with our planetary boundaries and makes apparel one of the dirtiest industries in the world. What’s worse, is that it’s not slowing down, the global waste problem is expected to increase by 70% by 2050. 

The time we have to fix these issues is short, and incremental improvements won’t move the needle. Solutions need to be scaled, immediately. 

Which is why, we’re excited to finally introduce you to Vega™: the world’s first automated & on-demand 3D weaving technology for apparel. As a company, scaling Vega™ is our north star and founding vision. 

3D weaving, circular fashion design, yarns
We suspend thousands of yarns around Vega’s core, which weaves them into seamless, 3D textile shapes.

Deployed in local microfactories, Vega™ 3D weaves yarn, directly into clothing. Vega™ eliminates the need for large order quantities and inventory, and drastically reduces lead times and transportation emissions– all in one single step, and 10x faster than any other method of apparel manufacturing. 

VegaTM is unspun’s natural evolution in rapidly scaling on-demand, localized and automated manufacturing to address waste problems, in partnership with other forward-thinking brands.

While we’ve been quietly working on Vega all along, unspun’s custom-fit and on-demand denim brand has been the champion of the sustainable future we’re building. Size-free, zero-inventory, ultra-sustainable– the industry has already bought into the better world we’re dreaming of. For now, our custom-fit denim line remains separate from our 3D weaving technology, and will continue to be available for purchase online and via our app. 

We can't wait to see where this journey takes us. We're here to revolutionize the fashion industry, and we hope you'll stick along for the ride!
