IKAT / eCUT is a project of the Goethe-Institut, which deals with the past, present and future of textiles in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. In different strands, it explores the cultural potential of textiles - from art to design, from tradition to technology. Two of these projects are "Textile Residences" and "Future Fashion". The resulting productions were presented at the beginning of July 2017 in Berlin.


In April 2017, together with the Fair Fashion label FOLKDAYS and be able, a non-profit organization for design education, the Goethe-Institut has created "textile residencies" for seven German designers from the textile, fashion, interior and product design sectors with Southeast Asian textile producers in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. The designers were given the opportunity to work closely together for three weeks on site with a production facility for traditional textiles with a focus on craftsmanship and jointly develop sustainable textile products.
