Most people will be familiar with the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes in the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. This summit will play the role of Andersen’s small boy and tackle some of the difficult questions around technical innovation and environmental sustainability within the textile coloration industry.

This includes the dyes, chemicals, materials and processes used to commercially produce your product within a circular economy.
One of the key concepts you’ll need to consider is ‘Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.’ In this blog we take a look at what this means.
