Earth Matters, Tilburg Textiel Museum, The Netherlands, 2017
Sustainability and beauty go hand in hand in the exhibition ‘Earth Matters’. It displays textiles and materials by internationally renowned designers and young talent in search of environmentally conscious ideas. Apart from the objects, they focus on the intrinsic beauty of the making process and make people think about the way textiles are produced. They aim to minimise their ecologic footprint, not just through innovation, but also in the re-evaluation of craft techniques and locally sourced ingredients. The exhibition was curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano together with the TextielMuseum.
