The Slow Textiles Group

Slow Textiles Group members work to make change in the British and European textiles industry and, by default, the industries that connect with textiles to try new methods of work and working processes.

Members practice as individuals connected by the network.  They are weavers, stitchers, knitters, printers, embroiderers, designers, innovators, professional amateurs, intellectuals, architects, artists, students, doctors, authors, analysts, scientists, retailers, film makers, thinkers, forecasters, doers, makers, philosophers and provocateurs.

The industries they work in include: fashion, interiors, architecture, product design, industrial design, agriculture, chemical engineering, electronics, nanotechology, ecological industrialisation, waste management, knowledge economy, skills and employment, education, well-being, and more.

Working as a social enterprise, The Slow Textiles Group aim to make their every move about sharing, facilitating and developing work, opportunities and working methods with sustainable development at heart.The promotion of waste minimization through social and cultural activity, and of textile techniques that extend the life of garments, fabric, fibre, cultural form, know-how and expression are central themes to their ethos.
