Research

Textile Center employees are working in areas of research important to the region, including textiles and cultural heritage. 

Since 2016, the focus has been on textile innovation and digital textiles. In 2017, the Textile Center was rewarded a grant from the Icelandic Centre of Research (Rannís) Technology Development Fund to realize the project Bridging Textiles to the Digital Future, which ended in 2020 with the formal opening of our weaving pattern database. 

 We always welcome collaboration and suggestions for new research projects!
