TEXTILE TUESDAY: C.L.A.S.S Education to Promote Smart Tech in Textiles
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm| $10
Once each month, we invite a sustainable textile vendor to come present their materials and processes. Join us for May’s Textile Tuesday with James Mendolia from C.L.A.S.S. Education – a new division of C.L.A.S.S. the Milan based eco platform.
In 2015, James collaborated with Giusy Bettoni, Eco Pioneer, and CEO Founder of C.L.A.S.S. to create this new division. James will showcase the latest smart technologies used to create innovations in yarns, textiles and materials. Among some of the materials from the C.L.A.S.S. library are EcoTec® by Marchi & Fildi, New Life™, Re.Verso™, Smart materials for Okinawa, BACX by Centro Seta Silk, and the Miroglio Textile Smart Printing system.
Centered in Milan, C.L.A.S.S. Education workshops are a great opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in eco-smart materials and technologies that provide significant reductions in CO2, water and energy. The Milan workshops offer a wide-variety of learning activities, lectures, seminars, and textile mill visits dedicated to sharing knowledge, and introducing ideas to add brand value. The design-centered approaches inspire participants to challenge the existing design development processes and activate change.
The upcoming workshops are a great opportunity to advance your career as you learn about the latest innovations in eco-smart materials and technologies, as well as engage in discussions regarding sustainability and design responsibility with like-minded people.
