Hi all

I am undertaking a project entitled Shed Me Clothes, which is based on biomimetics (using nature for inspiration for design problems). I am in the process of developed a textile that can shed like a snake to eliminate the need to launder garments. The use phase of a garment is the most energy intensive, therefore eliminating the laundering phase energy will be saved. (Please see

I am in the process of exploring what features determin how frequently a garment is laundered and what features ensure garments are never laundered. Please fill in my survey to help me find out:

From this research I hope to design a series of garments that are designed not to be laundered and to be made in the Shed Me Clothes textile.

Thanking you,

We are from Pure Pod in Australia. We would love to be a part of this but we live too far away! Can you run the same program for international designers? We don't get this kind of support in Australia.

Harriet, I work with African women who work with unusual textiles from sustainable sources. I am very interested in the programme you highlight below but I am based outside of the Greater London area. Are there other programmes that can support folk like me?
