'ORGANIC TECH'

Essay

'ORGANIC TECH' is a collection of weaves developed by Schoeller Textil AG which succeeds in bringing about a harmonious combination of apparent opposites. Established and traditional organic materials like wool, cotton and linen have been refined with the help of innovative treatment techniques. As a result they have acquired additional functions, like impermeability or moisture management, that were previously associated only with high-tech woven materials. The textiles manage to combine tradition and a sense of the primitive with modernity, and open up completely new aesthetic perspectives for the clothing industry.

Comment by the nominators:
Schoeller's expertise has transformed classic natural fibre weaves into high-tech happenings, offering fashion designers new and fascinating possibilities. The modernity of the materials is another impressive feature.
