About Thread

The work of Isolde Jaspard Mandy and Josie Warden, two Textile Designers recently graduated from University College Falmouth, THREAD is an initiative which aims to improve understanding and communication between emerging fashion and textile designers in the UK and manufacturers in the major Asian production hubs of India and Sri Lanka.

THREAD is a preliminary research trip to visit factories, NGOs and co-operatives throughout the two countries and will result in an online educational resource following the journey.

Design education prepares students to fulfill their creative potential but to produce functional, fulfilling and viable designs we have found a need for an insight into the methods, conditions and impacts of their production abroad.
With growing concerns surrounding sustainable and ethical practice this link is increasingly important for the emerging design generation.
