Biophilic Color: A Pathway to Sustainable Color Solutions for Natural Fibers
The lecture will explore Biophilic concepts and principles and how we can adapt them to utilize natural resources to create color sustainably for natural fibers. Using case studies that show Biophilic design in action in the real world, and the impact of the dye industry on local communities, we will examine how we can determine long-term solutions to create sustainable materials and best practices around color in the apparel industry.
