Embracing the frontier:

TEGET x unspun Static Noise collection

Achieving artistry in automation

Any new technology begs for its limits to be tested. That’s why we teamed up with TEGET, the avant-garde lifestyle brand of multidisciplinary maker Ana Kraš. The full scope of what a Vega™ 3D weaving machine can produce, we reasoned, would best be explored with the help of an artist’s imagination.

Foremost, Kraš sought to develop fabrics for her first ever apparel collection that would simulate the almost tactile appearance of static snow and digital glitches. To capture that random beauty using woven patterns in turn invited us to regard 3D weaving as a medium of expression.

Together, we set out to create a baggy fit pant in three colorways. The creative process was open-ended. Inspired by her previous textile works, our weavers quickly translated conceptual sketches from Kraš into swatches for her review. This back-and-forth honed our palette of yarns, to yield veritable tapestries defined by dancing speckles, color blocks, and continuous designs uninterrupted by seams. After several sessions, we saved three jacquard weave patterns to our Vega™ OS. Fancying the patterns not only as pants, but also as pillow cases, Kraš incorporated two of them into TEGET’s homeware line.

The Static Noise collection is available through our Shop and TEGET’s newly minted web store. Transcending function, each pair of pants is a wearable work of art, a composition of yarns as much as inspirations, that bears the presence of a handmade piece. 3D woven in limited quantities with Vega™ in California. Artistically designed, artfully achieved.

Ana Kraš, founder of Teget, defies classification as an artist, just as her creations defy genres of art.

TEGET

In the mind of Ana Kraš, the limits of imagination are merely the thresholds of expressive frontiers. Renowned for her ability to locate the throughlines across creative disciplines, Kraš unsuspectedly blends categories of things to reframe how we experience something. So a lamp crafted at her studio is also a textile, graphic art, and an objet d’art; it bespeaks a dialogue of surface, color, and shape. Fundamentally, Kraš seeks to outfit spaces with a touch of probative lightheartedness. Through TEGET, she applies her penchant for weaving to outfit the people inhabiting spaces themselves, accessing a new avenue for making the mundane lively, and the practical meaningful.

TEGET takes hold in Paris

The premier of a lifestyle brand deserves an urbane preview. Before its launch, Ana Kraš teased TEGET at the inaugural edition of MATTER and SHAPE. Coinciding with Paris Fashion Week SS24, the salon gathered established brands and breakout artists to showcase wares that blur the boundaries of design and fashion. True to form, TEGET’s pieces — indeterminately furniture, decor, and clothes — exemplified this convergence neatly. To celebrate the official debut of TEGET and the Static Noise collection, Kraš recently hosted select guests at her Paris apartment for an intimate dinner of home-cooked Serbian dishes. For ultimately, good design should facilitate the debonair enjoyment of each others’ company.

What our partnership shows

A Vega™ machine can make pieces of clothing with variable diameters

Each pair of pants in the Static Noise collection tapers by approximately 35%, demonstrating that a Vega™ machine produces fabric with a variable diameter consistently. Weave-to-size capability broadens the range of clothing styles possible with 3D weaving, making it more competitive with cut and sew manufacturing.
