In our clothing, furniture, toys and even computers! But how much do you really know about them? What exactly are our textiles made from? How sustainable are they, really? How far do our clothes travel before we buy them? Where do they go once they are donated?   This collaborative workshop illustrates the complexities and impacts (social and ecological) of the textile industry by using clothing as a case study. You will create the production chain of textiles, learn about the industry’s impact, and then work together to find solutions and actions you can take.   This workshop is inspired by the pedagogy of the Climate Fresk (an interactive workshop that teaches the IPCC Climate report). Experience this unique way of learning, if you are new to the Fresk universe of workshops. Launched in 2021, Textiles UnTangled has been enjoyed by over 600 participants.   You will learn:   1. Materials 101 - What fabrics should I choose!?! 2. The life cycle of textiles, from raw materials to end of life 3. Textile industry impacts on the planet and on humans. 4. How to think critically of claims made by companies & organizations about their sustainability 5. Notions of circular economy, systems view thinking, and human centered solutions 6. Actions that can be taken on a collective, business, and individual level All while working together and having fun!   Our main sources: Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Preferred Textiles Report, OXFAM, Fashion Revolution and ADEME.   What participants have said:   "This game is a fun, civic-minded and inclusive way to think about our relationship to clothing. I highly recommend it!" - Anonymous   "I learned valuable information about the choices one can make to minimize one's impact of GHGs and other pollutants when consuming textiles, whether it be clothing, furniture or other textile products." - Alex   A nice workshop to better understand the impacts of the textile industry with lots of mini games. Fun and interesting, for everyone, I love it! - Sylvaine   Thank you to them and all our participants! We have a 4.4 / 5 satisfaction rate!   Who is this for?   All expertise levels welcome! From people who wear clothing (haha) to textile producers! Textiles are everywhere and concern everyone. Experts in the field also enjoy this workshop and its ability to give a holistic view of the industry, spark discussion, and capacity-build in their organizations. Some companies who have played: Vestiaire Collective, Deloitte, Givenchy, Promod, Caroll and Minelli, Balzac, and Electrolux. For a private session you can contact: greendonut.info@gmail.com   Who is this by?   Textiles UnTangled game workshop (Textile Collage) was created by the volunteers at Green Donut.
