Earth Matters I 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 is curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano together with the TextielMuseum. An earlier exhibition in Stockholm will be updated and new projects will be selected especially for the TextielMuseum.
This exhibition is generously supported by VSB Fonds & Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds
