11.00 – 11.30 What if there was no end in a product lifecycle? An introduction to the cradle-to-cradle approach.

Sustainable innovation and circular business models are needed to preserve our planet for future generations. In the same time they are important drivers of long-term positive business growth. The fashion and lifestyle industries are getting aware and start to take action. Designing greener products and services, minimizing the environmental and social impacts and catering to new, eco-conscious customers who don´t buy products only because of a strong brand name. These are only some of the key challenges to face now and in the future. But what does "cradle-to-cradle" really mean? What are the major parameters involved? Which innovative materials are on the forefront? And how do forward-looking brands and companies react?

13.00 – 13.30 De-Construct your design work - Work with yarn.

When you work with colored yarn, you can use the same yarn for weaving or knitting different fabrics of your choice. This means that you have a real control of the end results. Color consistency problems are now obsolete. With We aRe SpinDye®, you can be certain that your choice of color remains consistent regardless of different textiles - every time - every batch. By using one yarn, and by excluding the dyeing processes you decease the complexity in your supply-chain and make transparency & traceability possible. The color system of We aRe SpinDye® has 1,950 available standard colors, and all of them has its exact and logic position in our color space. Every color within our color space has its own precise recipe. This guarantees the blending of the color pigment to be precise and perfect - every time - every batch. It is the most rational way to simplify working with color, eliminating all guesswork. And on top of that it is the most sustainable way to color man made fabrics.

Speaker: Andreas Andrén - We aRe SpinDye®

For many years Nora Kühner has been exploring the topic of design and its social relevance. Based on this work she calls on a radical transformation to product development in the sports industry. The carefully designed product is the core of any brand´s marketing, services and values. R&D hasto follow customer´s lifestyle and develop solutions for customer needs.

12.00 – 12.30 Garments from nature to store- Where do dyes come from?

Where do dyes come from? Some centuries ago, the only way to color natural fibers, such as silk, cotton and wool, was with natural pigments. Then, at the beginning of 20 century, with the booming of chemical industry based in petrol, synthetic dyestuffs of higher performance and volumes started to be commercialized around the world. Nowadays, we are glad to explain you a new method of creating fully traceable biosynthetic dyes, derived from natural waste products of the agriculture and herbal industries. A new way to synthetize dyes where nature and technology meet.
What are we wearing? Latest technologies such as Near Field Communication (NFC), allow verification, traceability and transparency of garments.
