The Trilogy of materials !

11 Apr 2022

It's been now 1 year and a half that Refashion is offering "Eco-design meetings", free workshops, open to all its members.



This beginning of 2022, Refashion organized for the first time a series of workshops which took place over 3 months (january/february/march), on the subject of materials to eco-design the textile products : 

10 different structures, each with 2 participants from their product teams, had the opportunity to take part in these three workshops. The first two mornings were digitally, and the third day of this trilogy took place at the MAXIMUM site in Ivry-sur-Seine.
