Finally sewed with technical considerations to make the garment strenght and fine finished. FabTextiles research and experimentation is based on creating different ways to impact the fashion industry with sustainable processes implementing growing materials, high customization garments and development using new technologies to elaborate textile and fashion products. This knowledge is thought globally in the educational program Fabricademy, shared in an open source platform and spread within talks and workshops with the community.
