Interdisciplinary collaborations with partners and clients

NEFFA is looking into changing material and production techniques, instead of changing human behaviour. By looking at nature’s own consumptive behaviour NEFFA finds solutions for the problems we’re currently facing. These solutions are on the crossover of textile, technology and microbiology. NEFFA also researches ancient materials, dyeing and production techniques to combine those with current technologies. NEFFA is re-thinking the Future of Fashion by developing personalised fashion and textile projects based on newly developed material and production techniques.
