BONUS: How do we future-proof the UK textile industry?

Wouldn’t it be great if the UK textile industry could create less waste, increase sales and become more profitable? 

Local manufacturing is an increasing focus for brands and designers looking for a fast turnaround on products that don’t leave a large carbon footprint.

Textile manufacturers now have the opportunity to capitalise on this by creating ‘just in time’ products that meet the needs of today’s buyers.

This episode is a recording of a live panel discussion recorded on 29th July 2020. I was joined by Scott Walton from Kornit Digital and Richard Jessup from Gerber Technology to discuss what the factory of the future might look like. We explored opportunities that exist for UK manufacturers to produce one of a kind products, at speed, and in local, micro factories.
