Sumary of New York Textile Month spotlights Belgian design, curated by Lidewij Edelkoort:
- She now creates pretty objects cover in upcycled leather, like complexities and raffia objects made in a family workplace in Madagascar and hand-finished in Belgium.
- Belgium has long been a source of idea in textiles and still has a grow flax, linen and twist industry, even if the spinning plants no longer exist.
- Brussels-based textile designer Laure Kasiers creates and manufactures carpets and other textile objects in her workplace.
- New York Textile Month was open by Ms Edelkoort, and the September impression will be its 7th outing, with the aim to celebrate textile ability and promote textile awareness.
