It was an inspiring visit to social enterprise Teixidors, a manual textile weaving workshop in Terrassa, Spain. The wooden looms and sound of a centuries old technology in process, weaving thread after thread to form textiles that have clothed us for years was so visually and sensorially stimulating, it was too much to not want to document. This was my first test on the utility of smart phones to weave a story and the result speaks for itself.
The Teixidors business model is not one that focuses on maximising profits but one that measures the social, economic and ecological value of the final product. But finding a market is hard in a world glutted with cheap goods. Visit http://www.teixidors.com to find out more about this unique enterprise.
