»I hope our newly developed products will be well received by the market so that we can work together more often.«

Artisan and co-creator in the project

Ikat/eCut Textile Residency

Six designers from Germany were brought together with producers of traditional textiles in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines to work collaboratively with traditional handcraft, fair production and contemporary design and inspire one another. 

Framed by two interactive workshops on co-design and marketing in Jakarta the designers spend a three weeks highly intense and sweaty work phase at the artisans ateliers and actual home spots in South East Asia. Despite from the inspiring and adventurous time they spend together, each design collaboration developed unique, beautiful products which stand out for their contemporary design, high-quality artisanship and traditional production.  

 The products will be available at Folkdays in spring 2018.
