New York Textile Month

Designtex to Participate in the First Annual New York Textile Month

Designtex, the leading company in the development, design and manufacturing of applied materials for the built environment, is proud to announce participation in the inaugural New York Textile Month this upcoming September 2016. On Friday, September 23, Designtex will form a human loom to weave a large-scale fabric on site with the help of textile enthusiasts. Designtex will orchestrate the assembly of a human-scale textile by organizing participants to physically operate the warp and weft in a manual loom. WEave: inviting warp and weft is an interactive and educational exploration that engages the public realm and encourages community cooperation.
During WEave participants will physically enact the weaving process, as some individuals raise and lower warp ends, while others walk the weft into the structure, one by one. Weaving will continue until the weft supply is exhausted and a truly broad loom creation has evolved. The weft will be comprised of salvaged material from Wallace Sewell, a boutique textile studio based in London, known for their striking, colorful designs created with various materials including silk, chenille and lambswool.
Developed by trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, New York Textile Month will be a citywide, multi-institution effort to celebrate fibers as the starting point for fashion and interior design. The programs will both investigate the material processes and components of textile design, as well as honor the industry as a whole.
Susan Lyons, President of Designtex, welcomed the opportunity to organize an event: “We are honored and delighted to participate in New York Textile Month. Li Edelkoort’s work has not only inspired but also led the textile industry, and her recent efforts, which encourage knowledge sharing, embody the values that Designtex strives to uphold. This event is emblematic of the collaborative spirit within the textile industry, and the collective enthusiasm surrounding Li Edelkoort’s vision is both encouraging and inspiring.”
WEave: Inviting Warp and Weft aims to engage the public with textile design and offers a superb portrait of what Designtex represents and values as a company. The event seeks not only to raise textile awareness, but also to promote knowledge sharing across the textile industry, foster education in the study of textiles, highlight the importance of sustainable practices and inspire local community engagement.
Join Designtex on Friday, September 23, 2016 at Garibaldi Plaza in Washington Square Park to participate in WEave and celebrate New York Textile Month. Weaving begins at 12:00 pm and the weft will walk until 3:00 pm. To learn more about visit
