Offering creative, alternative approaches to confronting textile waste, Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse will present the work of three designers who put sustainability at the heart of the design process. Through more than forty works, the exhibition will explore key facets of sustainability, such as the efficient use of materials and resources, the preservation of local craft traditions and the integration of new technologies in the recycling process.
