Textile innovation, but just that bit different: that is what Neffa is all about.
Through our multi- and interdisciplinary way of working, by altering or adding properties to textile and studying the different aspects (colour change, growth, nurture, etc.) of the skin we are researching how textile and clothes will act in the future. Neffa is interested in mimicking the skin and all its dynamic, changeable and living aspects. Like the skin is taking care of us, textiles could be taking care of us. Our skin is responding to the way we are and feel, what we do and how we behave. So each textile will act differently based on the wearer, because we all have a different skin. This makes our skin the ultimate form of personalisation.
NEFFA helps companies, research institutes and universities with the integration of their (bio) technology into textile prototypes and designs to make them more appealing for a specific target group or a wider audience. Personalisation is also important here, both in prototyping and concept development as well as in the cooperation itself. Aniela Hoitink has an extensive background in the commercial fashion industry (15+ years; Tommy Hilfiger, Gaastra), which helps in translating (bio) technology into the market. She is available for brainstorming, consultation, research, (material) development and prototyping.
Partners / Clients: Universiteit Utrecht, IMEC, Jora Entertainment, Sioen, uHasselt, Elasta, Solliance and others.
