1) Continuity of Design
Above is a three panel dress, design is so embedded into the fabric using DPOL that once panels are assembled, design follows a continuity at seams.
2) Non Repeatable deisgn and motifs
Above is a circular skirt made using DPOL Technology, it does not follow any repeat of design in its motifs rather produces a beautiful composition using non repeatable structure along the contour.
Typically a textile design follows an order, and same design is repeated over and over again throughout the fabric or garment. DPOL produces non repeatable compositions which offers continuity of design.
Above is a beautifully crafted skirt design using DPOL. The checks are narrow at narrower area i.e. at waist and broader at broader area i.e. at hem and the check lines follow a contour. The design perfectly represents the ability of DPOL technology for fashion garments.
4) Light Weight Embedded Design - Better Drape
DPOL produces ready to stitch designed garment components in shape of garment patterns. The design is neither embroidered nor printed, its embedded into the fabric at the time of its manufacture, producing a lightweight luxurious garment. The garments are difficult to copy as the fabric is specifically manufactured by the designer as per its end use and is not available in the market.
Another important concept is the gain line and design line independence, Above is a 2D top view of a circular skirt which is crafted of fabric using conventional method, Design follows a linear fashion and the products are not aesthetically sound,
The figure below is a similar skirt where design is beautifully embedded into using DPOL Technology giving it a design line and grain line independence. The concept can work beautifully for garments which has cowls, gathers, frills etc
DPOL technology can produce seamless garments, seamless tie ups and straps which adds values to the garment. It can also produce stripes and other directional design, against the direction of grain line giving a better drape to garments than conventional processes.
6) Intricate continuous design
Intricate continuous three dimensional irregular woven designs which can only be produced into knits can be produced successfully into woven apparels. E.g. Continuous checks over woman bodice (A woman’s bodice is contoured and has darted structure, when darts are closed checks are distorted), woven cables, 3D woven designs etc.
Using DPOL one can have multiple texture, hand, feel, drape, color, weave etc within a garment. Combination of the mentioned attributes can produce apparels which are very high in aesthetics and functionality. Playing with above mentioned attributes can make apparel more breathable in certain areas ( like underarm ) without any seam or stitch. One can have stiff (for plackets, cuffs etc.) as well a flimsy construction (for better drape) without any seam.
8) Excellent Drape and Finishing
DPOL makes the design embedded into the garment components at the time of manufacture, the design feel is rich as its neither printed nor embroidered and nested into the fabric. The designing process is accurate and fast as it is computer controlled. The overall apparel is light and drapes perfectly as it is not loaded with substrate in the form of design.
The components are finished by selvedge around the periphery for the ease of handling and to prevent fraying ensuring high level of finishing in the garment.
