In July 2020, The Selvedge Foundation will launch its inaugural event, The Selvedge World Fair, a festival celebrating textiles in central London, held over 3 days. At the event, the master artisans will take part in a programme of presentations, offering the chance for guests to hear their stories and learn of the importance of their crafts in their home countries. Currently, we are working hard behind the scenes to put together a program of talks and workshops that will bring our very special audience the best thinkers and makers who are reimagining the future of textiles.
