Textile (in)Fusion is an exploration of how contrasting materials can be fused together by stitching and moulding, with the intention of challenging material expressions. By adding the textile design perspective to this material investigation textile qualities such as flexibility, structure, tactility and movement become essential for the final expression.

Photographic book/catalogue by weaver and textile designer Åsa Pärson. The sample weave is Åsa’s sketch method for creating qualities with different characteristics where she distinguish between the tactility and the sensation of the textile. That is how the material behaves in the hand, against the skin and also how it looks. It is easy to replace a component and get a whole new result, a new surface, a new feeling that sometimes also becomes an association to something completely different from the weaving.Read more
