Re:Source Design for Sustainable Manufacturing

Would you love to make your clothing line more sustainable but don’t know where to start?

In this workshop, you will review sustainable alternatives for every aspect of the production process, look at incorporating sustainability into product design and manufacturing as well as consider ways that other designers include sustainability in their business models, learn about incorporating circular design strategies by reevaluating your supply chain. The workshops include a theoretical foundation to the definitions of sustainable, circular and responsible fashion along with their key principles. This is followed by design thinking methods that put your company’s needs and interests in focus to develop the perfect and unique solution for your brand.
