Lucie Huiskens, ArtEZ project manager at GEGD: “Over the last two years, we have established an open and interdisciplinary collaboration, in which each party has discovered new solutions for the further sustainability of its own organization and for the sustainability of the entire production chain.

The appreciation of GEGD is clear from the jury assessment: “What makes this project special is the close collaboration between the researchers and the people from the fashion industry. There is literally working side by side in the development of a circular process. All process steps are examined in conjunction. The clothing designer went into conversation with the hemp grower. Designer and knitter sat around the table.Students did research into technical properties. Design research in optima forma. “
