The “Steam Stretch” technique shrinks cloth and creates unique stretch materials by applying hot steam. Special threads shrunken with heat are woven with other threads, and then only the special thread parts shrink when the steam is applied. By only shrinking the intended parts of the piece of woven cloth, three-dimensional patterns and shapes are created and the garment is completed.

Through the development of “Steam Stretch,” it has become possible to weave even more diverse designs in cloth for A-POC.
