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 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. The long-term project aims to create innovation within the textiles industry of Iceland by developing significant advancements of dormant weaving industry knowledge (historic weaving patterns) and transforming it into new technology (digital database and digital patterns). 

 We welcome collaboration and suggestions for new research projects!
