Earth Matters

  An exhibition that reflects on the importance of sustainability in fashion and design    

The Textiel Museum at Tilburg (the Netherlands) presents the exhibition Earth Matters, which can be visited until next November 26th. The display reflects on sustainability applied to design and the importance of the respect to natural resources.

The showcase is divided in four themes:  ‘Honouring Origins’, ‘Collecting Ingredients’, ‘Reinventing Materials’ and ‘Sustaining Production’. Through these themes, the exhibition displays innovative projects that contribute to sustainability in fashion and design.

In Honoring Origins, the exhibition suggests a return to the origins, to the sources of the material that create the products. Collecting Ingredients is based on the search for more organic and ecological raw materials made by designers and artisans. Meanwhile, Reinventing Materials centers on recycling in order to make new products. Lastly, in Sustaining Production, the exhibition turns to the production process of textiles, reflecting on the way this process can be less harming for our planet, specially through the little use of chemicals and water.
