Natalia Lombardi

Textile Designer & Researcher

Natalia is a sustainable textile researcher who graduated from Arts University Plymouth with an MA in Textile Design in 2022. Originally from Brazil, Natalia credits her cultural heritage as playing a big part in influencing her work and research during her MA journey.

During her MA, Natalia participated in the Fabricademy Textile Academy Bootcamp 2022 in Onl’Fait, the Fablab in Geneva, Switzerland, deepening her knowledge of biofabrication, biocouture and circular fashion. The final outcome of Natalia’s MA research was a carnival garment influenced by traditional Brazilian ‘maracatu’ performances, embroidered and embellished with iridescent handmade agar biotextile flowers.

Now Natalia forms half of Art University Plymouth's Innovation Fellowship for StudioLab, developing experimental research into the intersection between computation, biology, smart materials, wearables and digital environments.
