Offset Warehouse’s Discussion On Ethical Fabrics is an interactive and captivating introduction into sustainability and ethics within the fashion and textiles industry.
Ideal for those new to the area, with the growing demand for environmentally and socially beneficial fabrics, this unique, hour long discussion not only allows attendees the opportunity to physically feel a huge variety of ethical textiles, but also offers the remarkable opportunity to pick the brains of a Fashion and/or Textiles Master consultant, usually valued at hundreds of pounds.
Set in an intimate discussion format with a maximum of 10 people per group, attendees can talk openly with the Master consultant, whilst getting a tactile and visual understanding of ethical textiles through a plethora of fabric samples available.
Over the course of the hour, you will be introducted 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. Attendees will leave with a more informed sense of how design can avoid damaging the environment and harming the people involved in the manufacturing process.
