Textiles, with their many inherent stories, are an expression of our identity. They are a reflection of social structures and community identities. They are mediators between the individual and the community. As clothing for the body, space and object, they provide information about cultural and social everyday life. By designing textiles, we actively shape our cultural and social everyday life. Just like language, textiles define our identity. We can express ourselves with both, tell stories with them and create fundamental orders.
