5 – Controlling handcraft : Gluing and sewing
THE QUALITY OF EACH HAUTE COUTURE WETSUIT IS THE RESULT OF SUCCESSIVE AND INTRICATE HANDMADE TECHNIQUES USED DURING THE MANUFACTURE PROCESS.
THE PRIMARY AND MOST CRITICAL STEPS ARE GLUING AND SEWING WHEN FIRST ASSEMBLING THE KALYPSE WETSUIT.
KALYPSE USES A NOVEL AIR PRESSURE CONTROL SYSTEM IN ORDER TO OPTIMIZE THE ADHESIVE EFFECT OF THE GLUE AND AVOID AIR BUBBLES.
In addition, years of experience in wetsuit design and manufacturing have resulted in an exceptional overlock seam quality, that can be foud in all of our products.
A few words from our designer :
When I fisrt started working on a wetsuit design, it was a new challenge for me. After discussing and researching with my network of friends I discovered the following : a lot of women feel that wetsuits brands do not consider the way women feel and look in their wetsuit and as a result women feel uncomfortable.
Therefore, my challenge was to create wetsuits that evolved around female morphology to allow all women to feel good in their wetsuit.
While creating the women’s collection, I was inspired by the ‘’ Bond Girl’’. A woman that is both athletic and elegant and possesses style. I was also inspired by the jewelry and ornaments of African goddesses that emphasized the neck, the wrists and the ankles.
With the Kalypse team, we defined the proportions and cut the patterns then incorporated fashion trends and requirements in every wetsuit design.
