Are you a designer or textile student wanting to use sustainable fabrics but don’t know where to start? More and more designers are converting to ethical and sustainable materials but there is still confusion over the quality of such fabrics and where they can be found. To answer these questions and more, sign up to the discussion session happening this month in London. The session is ideal for those who want to learn more about ethical textiles, particularly start-ups keen to introduce them into their designs and collections.
With the growing demand for environmentally and socially beneficial clothing, this unique, hour long discussion not only allows attendees the opportunity to physically feel a huge variety of ethical textiles, available to purchase at both retail and wholesale quantities, but also offers the remarkable opportunity to pick the brains of a Fashion consultant, usually valued at hundreds of pounds. Over the course of the hour, you will be introduced to the terms and jargon associated with the ethical fashion and textiles industry and offered an insight into the variety of ways designers can be ethical through their fabric choices: from reclaimed, to fair trade, to organic, to recycled.
