Reflow Circular Textile Festival

19th of April 2022 at 19:00:00

De bestaande fashion en textielindustrie is niet langer houdbaar en vraagt om een radicaal andere aanpak. Hoe gaat Amsterdam de overproductie en -consumptie van textiel te lijf? Het REFLOW Circular Textile Festival in Pakhuis de Zwijger is dé plek waar professionals en geïnteresseerden in circulair textiel en kleding samenkomen om te laten zien hoe het anders kan. Met workshops, talks, filmvertoning, kledingruil en volop ruimte voor ontmoeting. Toegang Gratis, maar neem minstens 1 kledingstuk mee dat je wilt swappen, repareren of inleveren.
