The Dash & Miller studio is ideally resourced for woven textiles R&D; both traditional and cutting-edge woven sampling technology is coupled with a team of highly experienced designers ready to exploit and manipulate the processes and technical elements involved in woven textile development.

We add to this our many years of industry knowledge and design innovation to offer a unique perspective and radical thinking.

The Virtual Mill: Base b

Collaborating with digital 3D design and development consultant, Jessica Garvey Birch, our aim throughout is to create a cleaner, more transparent, and more accessible textile industry through digital interventions.

Through the development and integration of digital tools with sustainable industrial production, the Virtual Mill delivers an elevated digital experience for designing and manufacturing woven fabric. The long-term ambition is a scalable model for localised circular textiles development that can be replicated across global regions.
