About
Weave Lab

TFRC is a research community at the University of the Arts London, based at Central Saint Martins. We are a community of practice-based academic researchers who explore how materials and textiles can enable more inheritable futures.


Our research examines opportunities for textile and material developments through mulitple lenses: ranging from social to sustainable as well as technological and craft innovation. Our core research areas are: Urban Fabric, Weave Lab and Material Innovation.


We collaborate with local and global partners on a number of innovative knowledge exchange projects. We also act as consultants to develop sustainable design-driven strategies for the industry as well as the public sector.
