Weaving Industry Kyoto | Connecting the new and old.
2018 - Design Research + Conceptual Design
Weaving in Kyoto & Kyotango, Japan.
In collaboration with; The local textile industries,
KIT Design LAB, Kyoto Institute of Technology and craftsmen of Kyoto & Kyotango.
As an European Designer I was asked to research the high- and low-tech local weaving industry. Connecting the local heritage with the European market. I was asked to come up with three short term and one long term concepts. Plus a hands-on design research with a constant collaboration and dialogue with the local weaving industry and experts.
