Danit Peleg


“Imagine a world where we buy digital files of clothes, download them and print them at home.”

“Imagine” is written in bright red letters on Danit Peleg’s 3D-printed jacket. Its creator herself sparkles with imagination. In thousands of hours of tinkering in her Tel Aviv studio, the Israeli has inspired the fashion industry. A graduate of Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Peleg was the first in the world to create her graduation collection at home using standard 3D printers – and she was the first to offer such clothes in her own online shop. “I enjoy experimenting with new materials, and I am interested in pushing the boundaries of printing techniques and software developments to make fashion fit for the future,” she says. The 35-year-old’s vision: In the future, consumers will buy digital files to print and personalize their clothes themselves using affordable 3D printers. “That way, there will be nearly no waste, and the supply chain will be circular and hopefully radically cleaner,” she says. The BBC chose Peleg as one of its 100 Women for 2019.
