Summer finally arrived to my corner of the earth which means not only heat, but also humidity. This miserable combination means that I turn to linen to wear and to knit. I also enjoy how it’s made type documentaries, so this video about linen production was nine and a half minutes of summer venn diagram bliss.
Students today have access to experiences that sound more exciting than those I had in college. The first FIT/MIT Summer Workshop was held in June. The students split their time between MIT and FIT and to explore and develop clothing concepts using advanced functional materials that incorporate 3D printing or advanced knitting technologies.
