Africa Textile Talks 2024

Thu Aug 15, 08:00 - Sat Aug 17, 16:00

Workshop 17


Are you ready to explore how fashion and textiles can help us live in harmony with nature and with each other? Are you interested in the future of a post-fossil fuel fashion and textile industry? Africa Textile Talks 2024, organised between South Africa and Mauritius, presents examples of what this might look like. Listen to experts and makers who practise and explore Earth-kind methods of growing, spinning, weaving, designing, and making. Learn from the growing ecosystems of sustainability, environmental, and circular doers, makers and designers. Help future-fit our communities, and our fashion, craft, and textile industries. Be inspired!

Join us for an exciting programme of insightful talks, tours, presentations, exhibits, and demonstrations. Book your tickets now.
