Description

During the EU Fashion Match 8.0, the KVK Netherlands Chamber of Commerce and her partners want to emphasize the importance of making the fashion and textile sector more sustainable. An inspiration session is organized about the statement:

Clothing without (environmentally) harmful materials is feasible, but is it also scalable?

On the basis of a number of inspiring examples, issues are addressed in the area of processing raw materials into usable yarn, using residues from the agricultural sector and how to grow from experiment to the market.

We invite the participants to think along with solutions and hope to inspire the sector and help them on their way to a sustainable Fashion and Textile sector. In small groups, the examples of non- harmful materials for fashion market will be clarified and participants can give their ideas how to tackle the problems and offer their help. At the end the groups wrap up their possibilities for further exploration and discussing next steps for follow up.
