From fibre to fabrics: Sustainable sourcing practices to procure raw materials
I have to say a big “Thank You” to Marianne, who, after my newsletter last week, pinged over a link to this incredible event and said, “Do you know about this?” No sooner had I learned about the event, than we had the organisers on the phone asking us if we’d like to attend to show offsome of our fabrics!
Impact Hub King’s Cross is an amazing shared workspace for social innovators. Together with Ashoka Changemakers, they are hosting a series of events that are delving into sustainable fashion called, “Threads – Rethinking Fashion”. The series of workshops is designed to support innovators interested in creating a fair and sustainable supply chain – so if you’re interested in ethical fabrics, particularly for fashion, and want to learn more and speak to some experts, you should definitely come along.
“From fibre to fabrics: Sustainable sourcing practices to procure raw materials”
Coinciding with London’s Fashion Week, “From fibre to fabrics: Sustainable sourcing practices to procure raw materials”, is the first in the series. The talk will explore current sustainable practices and will showcase live case studies – including Offset Warehouse. The featured speakers include the fabulous Charlotte Turner (who we work with over at The Sustainable Angle) and Christopher Stopes of Global Organic Textile Standard – we may not work with Chris directly, but we sure work with GOTS fabrics!
We’ll be there with some of our beautiful fabrics for you to peruse, so please do come down and say ‘Hi’! I’ll also have a load of Textile Forum invitations to hand out, so you can get hold of those too.
