The N12 bikini gets its name from the material Nylon 12, the sole ingredient used in the process of making these swimsuits. Through a laser cutting procedure called SLS, the nylon is melted down into the exact geometry of the bikini’s design -essentially leaving you with a snap-together fabric requiring absolutely no stitching or glue. This could very well be the sweatshop’s best friend.

Created by Continuum Fashion bigwigs Mary Huang and JennaFizel, the video illustrates how algorithm codes allow for the N12 design pattern to be duplicated infinitely, granted that’d be the world’s biggest bikini ever.
