Sustainable Growth the Nordic Way
WEB MAGAZINE - September 2018

Wearing Paper

Elin Larsson (Filippa K) and Sigrid Barnekow (MISTRA Future Fashion) collaborate on a project based in Stockhom exploring “speeds” of textile materials: how fast do garments move from the beginning to the end of their lifetime? This question led to research and development efforts seeking to adapt materials to both slow and fast fashion models. Paper pulp is a promising material as a basis to rethink the garments that are worn only a few times – a scenario where significant amounts of water, energy and chemicals could be saved.
