Sourcing Sustainable Fabrics and Components Seminar

Thanks to all of you who attended our last Fashion+ event, on the 20th January, the first in a series focusing on sourcing sustainable fabrics and components.
The evening’s speakers included Abi Rushton, head of sustainable and ethical sourcing at Tesco, Kirsten Samuel from MUMO, a sustainable materials supplier, and Ben Ramsden, founder of Pants to Poverty and Zameen.
The discussions highlighted the importance of supply chain traceability and accountability, and steps that are being taken to address this by the fashion industry across all sectors ranging from supermarkets, high end luxury designers and new fashion business start-ups.
The evening raised some important questions on the practicalities and realities of sourcing sustainably for businesses and designers, and was a great opportunity for people to network and meet face to face with suppliers of sustainable materials.

If you missed it and want to download the notes from the session - please join our group "Spotlight on Sourcing" and go to the discussion forum.

The next event in this series will be held on Tuesday March 17th.

There will be two events this day:

A masterclass on Sourcing Sustainable Fabrics and Components

and a seminar on Sustainable Manufacture

Hello, I look forward to joining you at the next event on March 17th. I represent the Panchachuli Women Weavers Co-operative from India here in the U.K. Our ladies hand spin and weave wonderful fabrics from cashmere and vegetable dyed lambswool.
