Nettle Fabric: The stinging hair of the nettle plant is used to make nettle fabric. It is safe to wear and highly luxurious. This has been driven by concern over the environmental damage caused by the production of fabrics such as cotton. The woven fabric is very similar to linen but stronger, it is ideal for more structure garments.

Concrete Cloth™ is a new and innovative, flexible fabric that is impregnated with cement, and hardens when water is applied. This 'concrete cloth' is composed of a blend of both synthetic and cement, combined with a pvc backing to ensure it is waterproof. When water is added, the fabric takes two hours to set, but before this, can be easily manipulated and cut. The fabric is thin, durable, waterproof and fireproof, and is used by a range of artists and architects in their work.

Suzanne Lee manufactures fabrics from her home creating garments without any heavy machinery or hard labour. She describes this biomaterial as a “vegetable leather” which she makes from a combination of sugar, bacteria, yeast and a fermented tea called kombucha. She came up with this new innovative approach to fabric when writing “Fashioning the Future: Tomorrow’s Wardrobe”. She is now working with scientists to see if this environmentally friendly take on fabric can be pushed further.

Architectural Textiles by Priyal Garg

Priyal Garg is a textile designer who specialises in 3D woven fabric structures which are designed for a wide range of final uses including fashion and jewellery. The fabric created can take many shapes and forms due to the interesting use of yarns. She'll mix fibres together, such as fibreglass and nylon with common weaving yarns such as wool and cotton so therefore the fabric will hold its shape on its own.
