Recycled fleeces


FPT/product analysis (textiles technology)
Carry out a product analysis in which you compare two fleeces: one made from virgin polyester and the other from recycled PET. Consider them in terms of form, function, materials and manufacturing processes, as well as all three dimensions of sustainability (environmental, economic and social).

DMA (textiles) - group project
Design and make a range of fashionable garments that use either recycled or organically produced materials. This project could finish with a fashion show with a message about sustainability.
