Join us for a participatory workshop that explores co-design and customisation not only as a way to achieve this, but also as a way to contribute to the circular economy.
The Regenerative Fashion Hub was a 6-week residency at LabE20 to put the research of the Textiles Circularity Centre into sustainable apparel-textiles on the high street. We showcased our research into bio textiles development, product and consumer experience designs that brought to life the journey of biowaste from source of waste through to the consumption of apparel. During our residency, we have welcomed delegates from the public, industry and academia to immerse themselves in the potential for an alternative to the current fashion model, and look ahead to groundbreaking research transforming the landscape.
This seminar will present our current research efforts to manufacture alginate micro fibres as well as alginate nano-fibres for potential use in textiles and the fashion industry.
