The fair is a chance to buy direct from sustainable designers and makers of fashion, fabric and homewares and to listen to experts share their textile knowledge. The topics covered in the talks are wide-ranging. From celebrating materials, to preserving skills, to approaching challenges like cultural appropriation and sustainability. The Selvedge World Fair also offers access to content to help visitors get closer to makers, from a live chat-room where visitors can ask artisans questions, to pre-recorded ‘show and tell’ films about products and processes, and themed podcasts.

Polly Leonard, Selvedge’s founder and editor said: “The Selvedge World Fair will be a joyful event for textile lovers. A chance to explore, to learn and to support businesses that enrich our lives. Uniquely, we will show the work of makers from 60 countries on the same platform. Willow baskets from England next to block printed cotton from India next to traditional folk blouses from Romania.”
