A German lingerie company is using technology circumvent a controversial new law that bans the import, production, or sale of synthetic lace underwear. The Eurasian Union trade directive, which took effect in the post-Soviet bloc of Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan in July, requires next-to-skin garments to contain at least 6 percent cotton, ostensibly to protect consumers from irritation. Because fancier knickers typically comprise materials with less than 4 percent cotton, lingerie boutiques across Russia have reportedly jettisoned most of their stock. But Lascana, a Hamburg-based firm that operates in more than 10 territories, including Russia, discovered a loophole that permits the buying and selling of three-dimensionally printed goods.

FIT TO PRINT

Together with Russian designer Viktoria Anoka and Moscow’s 3D Printus, Lascana is working to create a line of 3D-printed undergarments, which it plans to debut in November. The company revealed at least one prototype at the St. Petersburg Technical Fair in June: a bra-and-panty set, laser-sintered from nylon powder and embellished with clamshell shapes.

Not that Lascana doesn’t have several kinks to work out before their concept catches on. Anastasia Belousova, who modeled the two-piece, told the Moscow Times that the attire was “interesting but not for everyday life.”
