SHARING OBSERVATIONS
To understand Planet Earth


The iTEXTILIS is a division of The IK Workshop Society – a global and unique forum for all those interested in Natural & Cultural History from a Textile Perspective.

Here we are aiming to show the many fascinating perspectives of Textile History in regularly published essays. This is a place where practical and theoretical knowledge go hand in hand - with texts focusing on handicraft, manufacturing, natural dyeing, trade, fashion and material culture. These studies are based on a wide range of sources as archival documents, physical objects, travel journals and artworks primarily dating from the early modern period and up to the late 19th century. iTEXTILIS also gives information about previous and ongoing:
  • Field work, Expeditions
  • Research projects
  • Publicise, Publishing, Exhibitions
  • Philanthropy

Textile History is such a wide ranging interdisciplinary subject – which gives the possibility to inspire from a theoretical as well as practical viewpoint. Experiments and reproductions are an important part of the research – in the areas of weaving, dyeing, needlework, knitting, plaiting and lace – so in the best possible way be able to develop new knowledge related to the history of textiles and understanding of peoples’ former daily lives.
