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.
