Institute for Textile Research - IfTF

I have been an active member of the Institute for Textile Research (IfTF) in Basel since 2019.

As a collectively organized association, we are committed to the practical and theoretical exchange of textile techniques and topics. The focus here is on experiencing, learning and experimenting as well as collecting and passing on knowledge.

The institute sees itself as an instrument for reflecting on social, economic and cultural changes to which textiles react directly, for discussing them within and outside of textile specialist circles and for practical research. It aims to illuminate textile work in a contemporary light, to find innovative and sustainable ways of dealing with the medium of textiles and to exchange ideas across generations.
