Based on an hour long interview, they have manage to condense my ramblings into a coherent whole. Shorthand is an amazing invention..!
You will be able to read the article (and much more besides ) in the next issue, available from March 1st.

This is what they say:
Because understanding that textiles are a part of everyone’s story leads to life changing conversations.
We are surrounded by cloth from the cradle to the grave and by exploring our universal emotional connection to fibre we share the stories and values that mean the most to us. From why we love the sound of a needle pulling thread through taut linen, to why we are fascinated by the clothes we wear and the fibres we unknowingly rely on. There are many sides to every story and Selvedge is dedicated to finding and nurturing textiles from every angle. We believe that textiles unite all humanity and in surveying the development of society it is clear that from a spider’s web to the world-wide web, textiles appear as the protagonist.
It is with this thought that we hope to widen our net as well as our own horizons with everything we do. Join us and see life through a textiles lens.
