ReWeave - Research and Development Lead

From September 2021 Louise has been working part-time as the Research and Development Project Lead for ReWeave, sponsored by the Business of Fashion, Textiles and Technology and partnered with University of the Arts London.

ReWeave is originally conceived by, and an extention of, Kirsty McDougall Textiles.

The project seeks to industrialise and commercialise the process of re-weaving textile waste from fashion production into new fabrics for both clothing and interior products.

Both the yarn-making and weaving processes have undergone extensive investigation, applying a myriad of techniques and processes to a surprising range of textile waste product formats.

The project is ongoing, with an exciting partnership in the pipeline for 2023.
