This project is a series of garments made as a collaboration between FabTextiles and Roland DG, using Texart RT-640 Dye Sublimation Plotter.

The collaboration is based on the possibility of providing the fab lab community with the access to a ready to print textile plotter and encouraging everybody to get to learn the process and the different fabrics that are available of the market for Dye Sublimation Transfer printing.

Custom digital textiles prints are existing in the market as online services, still they is a problematic of the designer not being able to touch and chose the desired fabric, which eventually creates a limited variety and potential in customization.

The printed patterns are a glitch generated by an old mac computer before shutting down forever generating a pixelated 2 dimensional landscape.  Other prints are based on  a series called Spaghetti Art, ¨glitches¨ made by an FDM 3D printer, where the printed object resulted a failure. Images of failed 3D prints were processed and converted to repetitive patterns.
