Ever since Plastics-in-the-Ocean prompted a revisit to natural fibres, the subject of ReGenerative Agriculture has become a tag line for how to best harvest crops in balance with the natural ecology of the planet. Patagonia, The North Face, & Timberland are the most high profile Outdoor brands who have chosen this Ingredient, but it is the Kering group that inspired this. This panel will discus why Kering chose this Outlier position, how HDWool have become the first supply chain partner to attain this endorsement, & what other considerations brands are making before coming on board. There will be detail centred on the verification systems

Charles Ross, RCA Sustainable Textiles Lecturer

Helen Crowley, Head of Sustainable Sourcing and Natural Initiatives, Kering
