What a better start to the new year to have an article in on Slow Textiles and the workshops Emma and I are currently holding at the V&A in Stylus.com, the international trend and research site for consumer industries. The article discusses how the principles that The Slow Textile Group adopt could have implications on the wider textile industry. Fostering social interaction, shared learning and conversation provides engagement with the product which in turn can have long term ecological effects. The article also acknowledges The Slow Textiles Group aim to 'empower the consumer' through workshops by teaching old and new techniques.
