Textiles worth the Trek


We brave wind, rain and snow to bring you textiles from the world’s most extreme environments. Shellie Holden reconstructs the Native Alaskan Parka and we discover how the Sami people rely on reindeer to survive. An extract from The Weather Diaries, a project by photographic duo Cooper and Gorfer highlights the work of fashion designers from Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

And as midwinter festivals bring light and joy at this time of year, we look at that most festive of textile forms – the ribbon. From stunning naturally dyed silks to vintage sample books we look at the charm of these trimmings through the centuries.
