Spinexpo Is The Leading International Sourcing Exhibition Dedicated To Promoting Innovations In Yarns, Fibres And Knitwear
SPINEXPO in collaboration with Studio Eva x Carola presented TM TECHTILES, a project inspired by SPINEXPO In Between trends. Today’s consumers are not only looking for the latest technological innovations; they are also looking for experiences that affirm and reinforce what it is to be human in an increasingly mechanized world. Even in textiles, there is a demand for the latest technological developments whilst also preserving all of the wholesome, human qualities of the handmade. With this in mind, the aim of the project was to fuse the two fields of textiles and technology. This project was a collaboration with the renowned manufacturer Santoni Shanghai and innovative spinners like UPW, Esquel, Huayuan, and Shilead.
It is reported that 93 percent of our time is spend indoors. Our indoor air quality is often two to five times more polluted than the outdoor air quality. With this in mind, the focus was on creating textiles that would generate negative ions using cleaning yarns that contain organic geranium.
Sound is another pollutant that can add to stress and cause us to lose focus. The second focus of Organic Futurism concerned textiles that could be applied to interiors that filter and dissipate unwanted noise pollution.
