Kalopsia began as a small collective but since then our team has expanded to include creatives from a number of disciplines, areas of expertise, and interest, who are all passionately involved in the textiles industry.
We now operate as a social enterprise rather than a collective but we still employ the ideology that the exchange of knowledge and skills is vital to innovative development. As a social enterprise we find ourselves driven to create opportunities for emerging talent and local communities, to encourage professional development for individuals looking to establish themselves in textiles and to encourage growth within the industry.
Kalopsia acts as an advocate for the wealth of creative Scottish talent and works to support and create opportunity for those looking to establish themselves within the textiles industry. A throwback to our collective days is that we still host exhibitions and events to encourage the rethinking of textiles and craft.
