TextileLab Amsterdam researches, questions and speculates how we can help transition the textile and clothing industry towards a more sustainable and value driven approach as part of Waag, an artistic research institution in the Netherlands. 

Circular economy, sustainable value flows and networks, as well as material research and innovation are at the core of the TextileLab operations, going hand in hand with exploring informal hands-on alternatives for design, fabrication and production. This wide range of operations and outcomes all feed into education innovation, supporting the change of this field starting from existing educational structures.
