Abstract [en]

This project explores alternative ideals and norms in textile design, using repair as a design parameter. Facing the age of the Anthropocene, the work aims to investigate how repair can be integrated into the design process in order to deal with the Earth’s scarce material resources. By formulating an alternative design method around a concept of repair, this project investigates a holistic way of developing textiles. The result is a design method, supported by a collection of three design examples. By exploring alternative methods for conducting textiles, this project aims to force new ideals and norms within the textile design field.
