New sustainable textile made of Wool and Jute.
To rescue the crafts and heritage of wool textiles, through new design (material and application-level) the challenge is to conserve and revalue the traditional textile industry in Europe.
The partnership will develop a new, sustainable textile and design an interior wall tapestry-panel. They will blend local wool (15%) with reclaimed
jute fibre (85%) to spin, weave and felt it into a plant-based Burel fabric. With the fabric, they will create a wall tapestry-panel that tells a story about textile production in Europe, linking tradition, globalisation and a circular future.
