A charming combination of technology and traditional needle work

Mixing traditional crafts with the modernity of 3D printings, Chloë McCormick (ex Textile Futures Ma) and Nicholas O’Donnell-Hoare have designed a customizable pair of 3D printed tapestry glasses.

Each pair of glasses can be customized by its owner

Laser-sintered from nylon powder, the glasses frame includes a grid of tiny holes for weaving color yarns in and out of—perfect for personalizing with a pattern of your making 

“Through designing the frames to be hand customised to fit the culture and surrounding in which they sit, we have embarked on a journey to design a pair of spectacles, which could change the way we connect with our belongings.”
