Laetitia is a multi-techniques textile designer and researcher. She completed her PhD on Textile Design for Disassembly in 2020 and is fascinated by the challenges and creative opportunities of designing in the context of a circular and fair economy.
Based on her previous research Laetitia focused on textile joins (suture structures) that can be disassembled.
Bringing together different materials (layered structure) with different properties, such as softer tactile fabrics and functional waterproof ones, Laetitia connected these with flexible joins (suture structure). In addition, Laetitia used overlapping techniques (overlap structure) to control the way the textile would lay.
If applied to a garment, the waterproof overlapping elements would allow fabric to be flexible and protect the user from the rain. At the end of its useful life the textile can disassembled into separate materials again.
