is an event co-organised by Ecole des Arts Déco, the Swedish School of Textiles and the Institut Suédois on the 29th of Septembre from 18h30 till 20h30.
Building upon the friendship developed between École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs and The Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås, this event brings together students and professors from both environments to discuss the opportunities and challenges of sustainable textile design and its implications for textile education and future profession. Short presentations of cutting-edge Master and PhD projects from each institution will be the occasion to address key principles of sustainable textile design such as bio-based materials, zero-waste conception, upcycling, etc. The presentations will then lead to a reflection about the way textile education can empower a new generation of designers in transforming the way we conceive, develop and consume textiles as to shape more sustainable futures.
This event forms part of the Swedish Design Movement Paris organized at the Institut suédois all through September focusing on sustainable design, architecture, and fashion, with a programme of exhibitions, talks, workshops and more.
