WE HELP COMPANIES INTEGRATE TECHNOLOGY INTO APPAREL

The Crated is a creative company focused on innovating at the intersection of design, textiles and electronics manufacturing. We believe that textiles are truly the heart and soul of wearable tech 2.0 and we're obsessed with working towards a screen-less future where apparel and electronics intersect. Our prototyping capabilities have been put to work by clients like Google, Zac Posen and North Face and we conduct our own internal R&D to create a brighter future for the e-textiles industry.

Beyond fashion, we prototype for industrial wear, composite architecture and 3D printing related projects. 



WHAT WE DO

We believe technology can be a second skin. The Crated develops products, conducts proprietary research and provides insights to industry leaders with the hopes of making second generation wearable technology mainstream.
