Interwoven is a weekend festival which explores how textile innovation intersects with design and activism to create sustainable change within the fashion industry and beyond. As we bring together climate change activists, designers and fashion brands across technology, science, textile and fashion, join us in reconsidering what you wear and how it was produced.
How can we imagine new manifestos for the future of textiles, together?
Join us to debate textiles’ material and sustainable future, within and beyond the fashion industry. How can we upturn the production process and involve new voices in terms of innovation and experimentation, working in cross-collaboration across design, fashion, material explorations and activism?
Come explore ways fabric innovation can influence who makes our clothes and how – from material innovation to transparency in the production process, through to changing our own mindsets around how we consume and wear fabrics. The fabric of what we wear is being woven now – come have your say in its making!
