Abstract [en]

How can a textile designer design in a sustainable way and with a good conscience, contributing in all aspects, when in theory it is better to not produce at all?

Modular Sustainability is an explorative project in textile design, emphasizing on the importance of sustainability knowledge as a textile designer. The aim of this project is to design sustainable textiles in a spatial context by exploring weaving, alternative dye and finishing methods in combination with a modular assembly to enable material separation. The result consist of three woven textiles suggesting a variation of modular solutions in a spatial context. The study displays how a textile designer can use sustainability as a design method and how that can result in new design decisions and solutions that might not have been a part of the design process otherwise.
