Abstract: Stroudwater Textile Trust presents a new generation of knitwear/weave designers with ecological flourishings at the centre of their practice. Wool’s history in the Cotswolds is long, from powerful monasteries trading in wool futures to the industrial production capacities of the 19th century. In these post-industrial times where fibre and materials are critically examined for provenance, ecological and carbon footprint, wool is being addressed as an important fibre in developing localised and sustainable production and earth-friendly farming and production methods. Wool’s versatility enables both high technical production and handcrafting modes. Stroud Wool Week 2022 celebrates the qualities of wool focusing on sustainable textile production based on ecological care, design thinking, innovative handcraft and technical practices. The floccus exhibition emphasises the diversity of work from local and international talented graduating students and recently graduated practitioners at Bachelor and postgraduate levels.
