The textile design course at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Kunst Stuttgart shows exhibitions of their design project Boden Schatze. In addition to great technical freedom, sustainability plays a significant role in this project. Students also address issues of aesthetics, (contemporary) design, environmental awareness, usability and the limits of textile flooring. The exhibition shows individual stages of the process – from design to pattern development to the actual carpets. The final carpets were produced by the company Tisca in consultation with the students.
