Borre Akkersdijk has been involved in textile development for over 12 years. He is working on the mission of bringing transparency to the industry and democratizing the supply chain. In 2015 he co-founded BYBORRE – an Amsterdam-based textile innovation studio working on the frontiers of scalable bespoke textile development and production.

What started with Borre questioning and rewiring the creative boundaries of circular knitting machines at production sites, grew into a company dedicated to rewiring everything in the production processes of knitted textiles. His studio in Amsterdam houses a knit lab and atelier, a curated library of yarns, and the latest industry innovations coming from a network of industry experts that are otherwise siloed off and inaccessible to most.
