Natural Steps in the Evolution of Textiles by Mayer Fabrics

IDCEC + HSW Credit

This course explores our relationship with nature in co-creating textiles since time immemorial. Through the ages, man has been inspired by nature’s examples. Today we look to nature for design solutions that will address adverse environmental challenges. Textiles provide unique opportunities. Biophilia, biomimicry, biomimetics, bio-based synthesis, and bio-fabrication are design practices that we embrace as we endeavor to create textiles for a sustainable world.
