Threadbare: An Analysis + Reclamation of Textile Abrasion
Through the analysis of use in material culture, Rosie explores methods of reclaiming textiles’ inherent vulnerabilities of abrasion and fade through intensive use into sustainable, responsive and playful systems, celebrating the fabric of our built environment.
By reimagining the textile lifecycle through innovative woven cloth construction, textiles can be transformed into responsive and malleable systems in a participatory design process between user and material.
