Our curriculum is developing critical thought around sustainability. Students learn to design and work consciously and to create garments with minimum impact on the environment.

Courses introduce students to various approaches to sustainability, with a focus on natural dyeing, up-cycling techniques, responsible fabric sourcing, artisanal textile design, and lectures on sustainability and circularity.
