The conference provides opportunities for industry, academia, research professionals and students to share their recent research on the key themes:
Recall: To celebrate linen and flax fibre heritage through design that emphasises the longevity, durability and timeless quality of linen.
Rethink: To increase awareness, of the importance of textiles within our everyday lives and of the particular attributes of linen and flax fibre for a range of artefacts and design-led product innovations.
Reform: To communicate the value of textiles, eroded through globalisation, through the recognition of linen/flax fibre as a relatively sustainable material. And to emphasise the ethos of a ‘slower’ more responsible approach to the development of value-added product to include new flax fibre applications such as composite materials.
A number of abstracts will be selected for Oral or Poster presentations within the conference. Titles for proposed papers, with a 200 word abstract, should be submitted no later than 30 December 2017.
