Tekstiili16 -exhibition aims to show the versatility and high artistic level of textile design at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and brings the processes involved in designing and making textiles from behind the scenes to the main stage. Tekstiili16 exhibition is produced in collaboration with Finnish Textile and Fashion.
At Aalto University, recent curriculum and pedagogic development linked to the vast textile studios have been able to bring textile design to a internationally acknowledged level. Through collaboration with textile mills, fabrics can be incorporated to the students’ fashion or interior collections.
There is also a growing need for knowledge of textile processes, structures and fibres outside of their conventional boundaries. Numerous new and innovative products result from interdisciplinary projects. Furthermore new multidisciplinary and experimental research approaches extend the textile knowledge into science field.
