Fanzine #004: FASHION CRAFT REVOLUTION The fourth in a series of bi-annual collectable fanzines which seek to uncover the stories behind the clothing we wear. FASHION CRAFT REVOLUTION is an extensive examination of how we interact with craft in the age of the Anthropocene – from the effects of globalisation, to the plight of the homeworker; the crafts that are on the brink of extinction, and the ones that are alive, kicking, and actively embracing new technologies to ensure the hand-made and the artisanal remain relevant for the future. This issue is 240 x 170mm and 104 pages long.

Towards the Preservation and Dissemination of Historical Silk Weaving Techniques in the Digital Era Historical weaving techniques have evolved in time and space giving as result more or less fabrics with different aesthetical characteristics. These techniques were transferred along the main silk production centers, thanks to the European Silk Road and creating a common European Frame on themes and techniques. These had made it complicated to determine whether a fabric corresponds to one century or another. Moreover, in order to understand their creation, it is necessary to determine the number of weaves and interlacements that each textile has, therefore, mathematical models can be extracted from these layers.
