Technical Tutorials

As well as providing you with business advice and holistic resources, it's essential that you're armed with all of the skills to create sustainable products that hold value with the end-user: we want you to have a thorough technical understanding of fabric and product manufacturing. In our "Technical Tutorials", we uncover and define the methods behind the manufacturing of garments, textiles and fibres. Whether it's zero-waste design, how wool is produced, or draping on the stand - there's something to be learnt and these videos cover it in depth.
