Sustainability and Storytelling through Local Textile-making

Public E-team



Large-scale productionisation of textiles feeding into the fast fashion industry has led to the erasure of local artisans and crafts peoples' works, stories, and the local cultural practices of the region. 

This e-team will convene on exploring the ways in which amplifying stories of these artisans and their craft can directly contribute to a more ethical, sustainable, and just textile supply chain. 

Membership is open to businesses and social enterprises,  higher education institutions, government, professional bodies, non-governmental organisations, researchers, and individuals with interest. 

We welcome contributions in the form of;
- Existing policy research in the area 
- Existing domain knowledge in sustainable supply chains
- Partnerships and collaboration proposals

We will produce a working document to present the findings at the end of the year.
