BRIA is a London-based materials innovation agency aiming to transform the way fashion is designed and manufactured.
Our motivation is to drastically reduce textile waste in the supply chain, reduce manufacturing lead times and improve profitability while simultaneously achieving sustainability (for people, processes and planet).
We conduct R&D in collaboration with fashion brands, manufacturers and universities to find solutions to the fashion industry challenges.
We use textile design (our specific strength is in digital knitwear), materials science, 3D digital design and Augmented Reality to create our solutions. 50% of our work is R&D to find new solutions and 50% is consultancy and collaborations. Our clients are based in the UK, Europe and Asia.
