Copper textiles, Neha Lad

Textile designer Neha Lad has generated a new material typology using copper and paper waste streams. These fabrics — woven with copper wire and recycled paper yarn — exhibit a sustainable and circular design ideology.

To create her fabrics, Lad worked closely with weaving communities across India, understanding their skill-sets and honing her designs as a collaborative art. Her copper textiles can be designed into installations, tapestries, and wearables such as scarves.
