Reconnect to Nature: An investigation into sustainable printed textile processes and how creators embody Biophilic Design principles to stimulate wellbeing within a space.  
Emily King, MA Design Practice, 2024

Fashion print designer, Emily King examines how designers develop sustainable textile design processes to encourage reconnection to nature and stimulate wellbeing.


Examining contexts in relation to ‘Reconnect’, this paper discusses Biophilic Design principles in relation to sustainable design processes and well-being within a ‘space’, whilst exploring how textile design principles are able to stimulate well-being through process-led research such as natural dyeing, bundle dyeing and painting from nature with natural inks.


Finally, this paper explores how these processes can drive sustainable practice in the textile industry and how designers can push sustainable practices to encourage ‘reconnection’ to nature.
