Four distinct trends feature as part of the overarching theme “Nothing New, Everything New” for Heimtextil 2021. From creation to curation, Repurpose is the first of the four.
Repurpose is not a passing trend. Rather, it is a way of changing the product development narrative within the textiles industry, shifting from creating original textiles to curating existing textiles to form new visual expressions. Unlike the traditional design process which starts with an idea, Repurpose starts with considering what can be made from existing fabrics, giving existing textiles a new purpose and cherishes what’s already made. Watch the trend video for a glimpse of what to expect.
