Fashion would not exist without materials; weaving is one of the oldest crafts and preserving tradition while pushing innovation is an essential part of the fashion conversation. I just discovered this delightful podcast, an interview with Mario Sierra telling the story of a family weaving business in northern Ireland, Mourne Textiles. A lovely story of growing up in a weaving studio and keeping the family legacy alive. All images on this post are from https://mournetextiles.com/

Mourne Textiles has a lovely journal on their site that gives insight into the creative process: https://mournetextiles.com/blogs/journal/pinch-x-mourne-textiles-for-london-craft-week-19

The podcast was done by Material Matters, and tells stories about all sorts of materials. Worth checking out.
