This year´s annual bootcamp will happen in ICELAND!
We believe that fashion education should be updated, embrace multidisciplinarity and change the current model of fast fashion to customized and sustainable. We love making , experimenting and innovating using hands on bottom up approaches and new technology. In this 40h course, we have included all the new tools a fashion designer should learn! If you are an educator, a professional or a student this is the course for you!
Reserve your place here
The annual Fabricademy Bootcamp this year is focusing on blending traditional industrial processes with new technologies. We learn from the contemporary industry with factory visits around Iceland and workshops at the Icelandic Textile Research Center. We explore materials , tools and digital fabrication technologies at the Fab Lab and design for a sustainable and inspired future.
Project development in groups every afternoon .
For any questions , please contact with us at [email protected]
This activity is powered by DDMP project funded by Creative Europe

We are officially launching the : Fabricademy. A textile and technology academy that combines soft fabrication, wearable technology, sustainability and materials.
The program consists of 13 classes given by world known experts and the two month incubation and project development with mentorship.
Starting on the 26th of September 2017, students from Europe and overseas will learn tools and develop concepts that intersect fashion, technology and biology with a scope to equip the multidisciplinary future designer.
If you are interested in studying at the Fabricademy or participating as a hosting node, check the details here !

Using the embroidery machine we have started creating these minimal laptop cases.
We used raw denim for the base, thin foam for the inner lining and embroidered animal figures in zigzag technique, the outcome is a unique and individual laptop case, which will be a part of a mini collection soon.
This is an excellent example of the use of fabtextiles ideas in the every day life.

The Barcelona Fab textiles based in
the Stigmergic Fibers (A new approach to material behaviour) designed by Jean Akanish,
, Alexander Dolan and
Ali Yerdel in the Master for Advanced Architecture (IAAC 2012-2013_
Digital Tectonics – Fabrication Ecologies) is working in a new technology for fashion design related with natural hemp fibers.
This material is a non-woven material that allows applications without sewing on structures allowing continuity and multiple densities.
Using natural hemp fibers and white glue, the application on wearables opens new concepts in fashion design based on ecological concepts.
