Meet the Experts

Exciting news! The new edition of Meet the Experts is just around the corner, and we’re thrilled to invite you to join us for an illuminating session focused on bio-based materials in fashion.

In the early stages of HEREWEAR, we embarked on a journey to explore the potential of bio-based materials, collecting samples that represent innovations in this rapidly evolving field. Our comprehensive review of the state of the art has unveiled a diverse array of feedstocks, processes, and end-of-life trajectories, showcasing the incredible versatility and potential of bio-based materials.

At the heart of our exploration lies the bio-based material lifecycle map, a powerful tool that offers a holistic view of these materials from cradle to grave. By examining the entire lifecycle, we gain invaluable insights into how decisions made in the early stages can shape the design and use phases, ultimately driving more sustainable practices within the fashion industry.

If you’re a designer or brand passionate about (or interested in) working with bio-based materials and eager to delve deeper into the challenges and opportunities they present, this session is tailor-made for you. Join us as we introduce the lifecycle map and explore key materials within this innovative framework.
