This content packed, day-long festival will be an inclusive learning, networking and shopping event. You will be welcomed into an inspiring space in which to consider the potential for natural fibres to take over where manmade fibres are proving disastrous.

The global business model we as consumers have been foiled into following has been shamed – the revolution against cheap disposable textiles is a given, and well underway.

Those attending this event will join an informed, positive and timely conversation about what each of us can do to access values-driven, natural fibres to wear and to have in our homes – and to contribute to our collective understanding of why things aren’t happening faster.
