The E-Textile Swatch Exchange is a platform for sharing physical work samples in the field of electronic textiles. The exchange wishes to emphasize the importance of physicality and quality workmanship in an increasingly digital world.
Individuals and collaborative efforts participate in the exchange by submitting a unique swatch design of their own, and in turn receive a compiled collection of everybody else’s swatches. This means that everybody participating needs to make as many multiples of their swatch as the total number of participants.


Récueils d’échantillons E-Textile 2013 et 2014
Ces livres sont le fruit d’une démarche orientée sur le partage de recherches entre praticiens e-textile qui se concrètise par l’échange d’échantillons extraits des travaux de chacun. La volonté sous-jacente est la valorisation et la mise en avant de l’importance du travail de la main en présentant des matières physiques dans un monde qui perd de sa consistance.
Chaque participation, qu’elle soit personnelle ou issue d’un travail collectif, est réalisée autant de fois que nécessaire pour que chaque contibuteur reparte avec son livre complet.
