One clothing company is producing what it calls “fashion for the digital age”. Continuum, a San Francisco based firm lets people design their own apparel online and manufactures personalized garments for them using its 3-D printers.
Until recently, 3-D printing was limited to large companies. But the cost of the technology has plummeted in recent years, putting it within the reach of fledgling firms and empowering mini-manufacturers like Continuum to create products on their own, rather than relying on a factory.
