Maarit’s mantra of textile thinking is in itself a revolutionary concept where ancestral wisdom on crafting cloth is exploited for innovative scenarios toward new ways of creating relevance across all domains. The strength of Salolainen is her generous and ebullient enthusiasm for sharing these pages with knowledgeable colleagues, faculty friends and talented students, making this book’s collaborative approach the new standard on learning how to formulate textiles from scratch.” – Lidewij Edelkoort
