Fabricademy, textile & technology academy

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 !

Are you a fab lab, institution, school, makerspace that wants to host and run the Fabricademy at your space?

Laser cut aprons

In the fab textiles we made a laser cut apron for the fab lab members. The aprons are made from raw denim and they contain special pockets for the fab lab tools.

Laptop embroidered cases

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.

Fashion design exploration with Natural hemp fibers

The Barcelona Fab textiles based in
 the Stigmergic Fibers (A new approach to material behaviour) designed by Jean Akanish, 
Jin Shihui
, 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.

FabTextilesThis 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.
