The Carnegie Mellon Textiles Lab


The Carnegie Mellon Textiles Lab extends the state of the art in textile design and fabrication. We seek to collaborate broadly both inside and outside the Carnegie Mellon community.

Our space in Wean 1334 houses a state-of-the art knitting machine, computer-controlled quilting machine, prosumer-level jacquard loom, and various small textiles fabrication tools and supplies.


For project-specific questions, please contact the members of that project directly. For general lab questions, contact Jim McCann.
