- Q&A (open to audience)
Adriana Galijasevic is a designer, action researcher, innovator, educator and an advocate for circular economy in fashion-industry based on the Cradle-to-Cradle design principles. Before starting as an independent consultant, she spent a last decade working for G-Star ‘RAW’ as Denim, Sustainability & Circularity Expert.
Graviky Labs (India)
Graviky is a material innovation startup that turns end-of-life carbon emissions into industrial grade materials. Emissions are recycled into products such as screen-print and inkjet inks, dye stuff and transfer inks that could be used in apparel and packaging applications.
t-hues (Sri Lanka)
t-hues began with a collaboration between Dynawash (an industrial apparel dyer) and SLINTEC (a nanotechnology research institute) that saw the creation of a natural dye produced from tea waste from Unilever. t-hues can offer a sustainable dye with a wide range of colours and a reduction in the carbon footprint.
Stony Creek Colors (United States)
Stony Creek Colors creates a plant-based indigo that can replace petrochemical based synthetic indigo dyes. They optimise indigo production in a (non-GMO) closed loop process which has the potential to be carbon negative. In addition, they are working with small-scale farmers and helping them to switch from tobacco to indigo which can provide them with a more stable income stream and keep prime farmland in agricultural production.
About Fashion for Good:
Fashion for Good was founded to address the problems faced in the fashion industry. In order to change things, we need to innovate. But to date, key innovations are not being scaled; we bridge this gap by bringing the most promising innovators together with industry heavyweights to tackle the industry’s most deeply rooted environmental and social challenges.
We are both an innovation platform and a convenor for change - we house the world's first interactive tech museum for sustainable fashion in Amsterdam and run regular events and workshops to help you on your good fashion journey.
