These 3D knit designs use printed plastic to turn an ordinarily simple material into a medium through which intricate designs can be made. The 'Knit by Curver' collection adds a high-quality look to plastic, with braided pieces woven in and out of each other. This collection encourages consumers who would normally purchase something like a wood or wicker woven basket to move to these similar designs that additionally come in bright styles.

'Knit' includes a wide variety of items like laundry hampers, plant containers and even shopping bags. The durable material is strong and flexible and comes in an array of colors like bright green, blue or white. These 3D knit designs employ a 3D printing method referred to as deep-texture injection, which was first inspired by rattan-style outdoor furniture.
