Stylesight traveled to the south of The Netherlands to attend the Talking Textiles exhibition at the TextielMuseum in Tilburg.

Curated by Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano, Talking Textiles presents a dazzling array of design and interior objects, from rugs, curtains, textiles, upholstery and furniture to films and new printing techniques.

Highlighting the importance of education and creative processes in a globalized world that has pushed many textile mills to the border of their existence, Edelkoort hopes that the exhibition will “expand our perception of where textiles can take us.”

Rarely seen items are on display, including Rubelli Textiles by Maarten Baas and Josef Frank’s Beast Love. In addition, students from the Design Academy Eindhoven, including Daniel Costa, Dienke Dekker and Lenneke Langenhuijsen, are also exhibiting works.

Talking Textiles runs until January 26, 2014 at the TextielMuseum in Tilburg – Samantha Fox & Mona Dekker
