Textiles Tomorrow Summit brings together an international network of textile educators to discuss the future of textiles and share their knowledge and expertise. Aalto University is proud to host the second textile education conference initiated by Lidewij Edelkoort in 2018 at The New School/Parsons, New York. This year our aim is to continue sharing ideas as a community and to take further steps to build bridges between textile academics and professionals. The summit provides a versatile platform for learning and discussing topics of novel sustainable textile materials, cross-disciplinary collaborations, and artistic and technical expertise.
