'Between the Layers,' the 3D-printed collection by Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design graduate Ganit Goldstein, is an exploration in fashion, technology and sustainability, as the range's seven outfits and six pairs of shoes are constructed with a mix of traditionally crafted materials and printed PLA and TPU.

During Goldstein's time at the Tokyo University of the Arts for an exchange program, inspiration struck and the designer began working with everything from upcycling and shredding second-hand fabrics to creating new garments from a traditional Japanese textile technique called IKAT weaving.

With a Prusa i3 Mk3 3D printer, the hand-woven components of the designs were elevated with technology but also an eco-friendly component, as additive manufacturing significantly helps to reduce material waste.
