An experimental collection of fabrics. Different unconventional dyeing techniques were developed and captured in these videos below.
TexLab 1: Injection dyeing of folded, woven fabrics
TexLab 2: IV-bag infusion and weaving
TexLab 3: Injection into bobbins and knitting – coming soon!
TexLab is the winner of the Jury Special Mention in the Dorothy Waxman International Textile Design Prize 2016.
Jury comment: "The jury felt that this project shows great promise and applications that can be used by the industry in different ways; the work is inspiring and can lead to other innovations, including a hybrid way of "painting" patterns and prints."
