Responsible Non-Woven Textiles For The Mass Fashion Market with Doppelhaus

Martin Brambley Wednesday, 1 July 2020

Learn about the entire process of developing non-woven textiles, from how it requires fewer steps, no additives and less water than conventional wool fabrics to the names of the sheep that provided the wool. By presenting natural coloured felt-like fabrics printed with pastel colours and metallic foil patterns, our interviewees have carved out a space for non­-woven textiles with fashion­-focussed aesthetics.

In this lesson you'll hear about:

  • Who Doppelhaus are and how their idea for a non-woven European produced wool textile was formed
  • What Cloudwool® is and how it can be a mass-market fashion textile
  • What the sustainable impact of British, non-woven wool textile is, and tips on sourcing it
  • Creative uses for Cloudwool® and advice on sampling your own creative textiles
  • Wisdom on working with a business partner (and friend)
  • Tips to overcome fear on setting up your sustainable fashion start-up
