Exhibition, TextielMuseum, Tilburg, Netherlands.
Sustainability and beauty go hand in hand in the exhibition Earth Matters. Displayed are textiles and materials by internationally renowned designers and young talent in search of environmentally conscious ideas. Apart from the objects, the designers are focused on the intrinsic beauty of the making process and wish to make people think about the way textiles are produced. They also aim to minimise their ecologic footprint, not just through innovation but also in regard to the re-evaluation of craft techniques and locally-sourced ingredients.
