Frequently asked questions about Nobahar Design Milano

What kind of technique & material we use?

We mix different materials and techniques. Mostly the base material for the jewelry and design pieces is sintered nylon powder which is mixed with silver 925, silk Persian carpet or fabrics. the metal parts produced in traditional casting, while the sintered parts are produced with additive manufacturing technique which the designer will do the polishing and coloring manually. Persian carpet pieces are also all handwoven by the designer herself.


What is sintered nylon powder or 3D printed nylon?

Selective Layer Sintering is a 3D printed technique using nylon powder. Powdered nylon is melted and sintered layer by layer with a laser and creates a solid object. The final object is really light and strong which makes it a great choice for pieces of jewelry and wall panels. The thinner layers could be flexible as well.


What kind of color and dyes do we use?

For the colors that we can achieve in a natural way, we use natural dyes such as turmeric, red rose, black tea, coffee, and everything that we see we can recycle and obtain a beautiful color for our pieces around the studio and our homes.

For the colors we cannot obtain yet with the natural dyeing process, we use textile dyes or acrylic paints.
