2014 Future Material Awards Finalist

2014 Royal College of Art MA Textiles  

Sophie Zajicek's work is an investigation into woven structures and yarn combinations with the aim of producing innovative fabrics that could be integrated within technical textiles for sportswear, vehicle design and architectural textiles. Her project focuses on the development of aspects such as plasticising, cushioning and articulation in woven fabrics. The result is a series of experimental materials that articulate, stand independently, bounce and resist water.
