About XTANT:


Like its previous iterations each year's XTANT has a leitmotif, this year it is ¨ROOTS¨ Far from looking fondly at the past as an isolated article. The examination it undertakes seeks to understand roots for what they truly are. Not just origins, but continuous parts of a living organism, of coming to a closer wholistic understanding of ourselves as both ‘everything’ and ‘forever’. 
The event will take over several heritage patios, all walking distance from each other at the very heart of the historic and beautiful streets of Palma de Mallorca. A true celebration of the art in heritage crafts that no textile enthusiast can miss. 

XTANT aims to inspire the new generations to value sustainability, personal identity, tradition and responsible consumption over commercial tendencies based on unbridled consumption. The event offers many moments of reflection and communion with the unique, the beautiful and the long-lasting. Full of enriching conversations, workshops, rituals and textile exhibitions with over 65 master Artisans / activists / designers invited from 23 countries, XTANT| 2023 was a resounding success.
