Biolace - A Bold Biomimicry Concept

By 2050, we'll not just sport more grey hair... having reached 9 billion, we'll need to reap the benefits of novel ideas like Carole Collet's biolace concept to ensure sustainable development. 

Having founded the Textile Futures course at Central Saint Martin 10 years ago, Collets leapfrogs future challenges today. Her projects speculates about the potential of 'biolace' where biological processes are harnessed to create goods in an sustainable, organic way. 

A future where genetically-modified pants produce both fruit and lace from roots. A bold idea to combine food and textile production in a world with ever more scarce resources. 

Little wonder we're aiming to collaborate with Central Saint Martin's to produce novel fabric designs for our thermal products...
mutually inspired by nature, we are!
