Just Got Made Breakfast Club: Sustainable Textiles NOW!
Fri 24 February 2017, 09:30 – 11:00 GMT
"What does it mean to create sustainable textiles in 2017? "
Join our panel of three practising micro-manufacturers and suppliers from the Just Got Made directory, for an informal panel discussion, where we question what does sustainability mean today, what to we need to do better as an industry and how can we apply fresh ideas and perspectives to our own businesses.
Nick Morley spent 20 years as Director of Sustainable Innovation at a research and consultancy company, before starting Faering Ltd, a studio which specialises in design-led digital textile print. Clients include John Smedley and Campaign for Wool.
James Edmondson works at Elobina, a commercial textile printer moving away from mass production and instead creating bespoke pieces that will last and be cherished. Elobina print on certified organic cottons and is about to introduce a swimwear fabric made from 100% recycled polyamides.
Liza Mackenzie is a designer interested in the slow made movement. She founded Indigo Works in 2016, a bespoke design studio exploring pre-industrial dyeing techniques using Indigo.
Tina Gorjanc is the designer behind the Pure Human project. Her work aims to explore and speculate on the potential of embedding biotechnologies into the fashion/textile industry to produce a leather-like material developed in the lab that reforms the production system for leather goods as we know it.
