On 23 June 2020 at 17:00h CEST, the STARTS Lighthouse Re-FREAM will be hosting the webinar "Sustainable Textiles and Fashion".

AITEX is the partner behind the main organisation of this webinar (you can find information about the other webinars here, in starts.eu). Stakeholders from the technology and fashion industry are invited to join the Re-FREAM artists and scientists during the 90 min webinar. Their goal is to connect the participants with their partner network, scientists, artists as well as likeminded people from their own community.

The webinar is structured in a diverse and fun manner so that the keynote and panel discussion are complemented by interactive and playful breakout sessions. There is even a chance for you to become part of the official program by applying for the open mic session, which gives you a chance to tell our audience about your solution or request in a 3 min pitch.

Some of the topics will cover:

  • Co-Creation between technology and artistic sphere.
  • Vegan Leather based on residues of cork caps for bottles.
  • ‘Adaptative archifilament’ thread that modifies its shape with meteorological phenomena.
  • ZeroWaste fashion line, products without generating fabric residue.
  • Materials based on natural products and food waste, 100% biodegradable.
