- story by MaterialDistrict

Interwoven is a project in which the root system of grass is manipulated so that it interweaves to produce fabrics. Using subterranean templates as moulds, the root systems of plants are channelled, forming a textile-like material. During the growth process, the roots conform to the patterns and the root material weaves or braids itself.

Designer Diana Scherer collaborates with biologists and ecologists of the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
