TCBL Days 2021

Ingredients for sustainability. Circular, creative, local, inclusive.

11 Nov—2 Dic 2021 | Online

Sustainability is multifaceted: there is no one-stop solution or simple recipe to make the textile, clothing and fashion industry truly sustainable right now. It goes beyond technical elements like new materials or recycling, it’s more than just ensuring ethical and social fairness, and it cannot be resolved by creativity and design alone. Real sustainability can only be achieved through a holistic vision in which all of the ingredients for sustainability come together and reinforce each other.

Four ingredients are the focus of the month-long TCBL Days 2021: we’ll look at people and projects addressing solutions that are circular, creative, bio-based, and inclusive.

These four ingredients represent the current research direction of TCBL through the network’s participation in on-going EU-funded projects. TCBL Days is the umbrella under which to look at the concrete results of Herewear (local bio-based fibres and fabrics), Creativewear Plus (creativity and collaboration), and shemakes (gender innovation).

The hybrid and diffused event will provide inspiration, case studies and networking (through our dedicated app) with people leading the way in the sector.
