Los Angeles-based FABFAD is a startup operating at the intersection of tech and fashion. It has pioneered the sublimation printing technique of printing onto synthetic material using high-temperature heat, pressure, and timing. This method turns dye sublimation ink into gas and transfers it onto polyester and nylon-based fabric.
