MULTIFUNCTIONAL TEXTILESMULTIFUNCTIONAL TEXTILES. OBJECTS THAT CAN BE TRANSFORMED
The project aims to develop a sustainable fashion collection of multifunctional designer textile objects, which can be transformed from clothing into home textiles. The collection will consist of 10–15 items made by using different natural fibres and creative technologies such as plant dyeing, weaving, knitting, and felting. The product packaging and labelling will clearly display the sustainability processes. The project combines various textile technologies creatively, maintaining the heritage, tradition and knowledge of the countries involved, offering a unique author’s aesthetic together with craftmanship since all the collection is handmade.
