How to shape textile objects without sewing nor gluing ?
In the textile industry, a textile object is usually created by using several pieces of fabric cut then sewn or glued with each other, sometimes assembled with other materials. Thus, textile design and product design are often seen as two very distinct fields : textile designers design fabrics (flat surfaces), product designers pick in the vast array of existant fabrics to design their products.
Putting aside the common textile shaping techniques, this experimental project explores other ways of designing and creating textile objects.
Therefore, we focused on three objects (a cap and two pairs of shoes) and we designed for each object a specific fabric, thinking ahead its future shaping, using traditional weaving techniques mixed with emerging technologies such as 3D printing.
