What is MeshCon
How to reap the benefits of participatory production in the textile industry is the topic of the first edition of MeshCon taking place in Berlin from October 10-15, 2014.
We are developing concepts and Open Source technologies for fair and environment friendly production of garments and textiles at home and in the industry. MeshCon Berlin brings together industry representatives, fashion designers, pattern creators, knitters, textile manipulators, Open Source developers and DIY hardware makers. The event offers a place to exchange new ideas in personalized fashion and technologies in the garment production.
Participants from across the world are joining the five day event at locations around Berlin city. The first day will start with a conference at the University of Technology TU Berlin. In the following days you can learn how to create your own fashion and wearables at workshops at the Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. office.
Some of the projects presented at the event are below.
