Vision of the textile future

Textile is an extension of the skin. 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. We believe that this distinctiveness and individuality are the elements that make the world an interesting place instead of making everyone an average. And by studying the different aspects (colour change, growth, nurture, etc.) of the skin we are researching how textile and clothes will act in the future.

The ultimate objective is to create textiles that act as a living organism and with which we life in symbiosis.
