UKRI/AHRC Design Exchange Partnership Awards
Our new and exciting projects ‘Going Circular; Harris Tweed Hebrides Repurposing British Waste Textiles‘ and ‘Sustainability Visualised – Net-Zero at a District Council Level‘ are now underway!
The Harris Tweed Hebrides project will embed sustainable and circular economy practices amongst Harris Tweed Hebrides’ network of weavers to deliver net-zero wins and create new revenue streams through design and manufacture of unique woven products. In addition we will be working with London College of Fashion Making for Change a fashion training and manufacturing unit within HMP Downview women’s prison.
‘Sustainability Visualized‘, the project we are working on with St Albans City & District Council, will utilize strategic design thinking, following the methodology of Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test in combination with a diverse range of data visualization techniques in order to innovatively extract additional value and insight from the council’s sustainability action plan and develop propositions that help them achieve their goals.
