The Regenerative Fashion Hub
The TCC is undertaking fundamental research into a circular textiles economy for the UK SME apparel-fashion industry based on producing high value textiles from bio waste.
Researchers from the TCC are inviting the public, industry, NGOs and government into the research, providing opportunity for discussion, research and knowledge-exchange.
The Regenerative Fashion Hub will host talks, 'open house' sessions, and research and knowledge exchange activities.
The Textile Circularity Centre (TCC)
The Textile Circularity Centre is funded by the UK Research & Innovation National Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Research programme.
It is an academic consortium led by the Royal College of Art (RCA), and includes Cranfield University, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds, University of Manchester, University College London, and University of York.

Research studies and workshops
Consumer Experience: Augmented Reality (AR) and Bio-based Textiles Study –
27, 29 February; 6, 9, 13, 15 March 2024 | Sign up via Eventbrite
In this study, we’re using Augmented Reality to help people understand the fabrication processes of the biobased circular textiles we’ve developed at TCC. We want to see if Augmented Reality can make it easier for people to grasp the value and importance of these sustainable materials for fashion-apparel.
Workshop: Exploring novel technologies for extending the life of materials
5, 7, 12, 14 March 2024 | Sign up via Eventbrite
This research aims to investigate how novel textile technologies can extend the life of materials in textiles and apparel within the context of localised fabrication hubs.
Research study: Drivers and Barriers to Circular Supply Chains for Clothing
7, 12, 13, 14, 18, 20 March 2024 | Sign up via Eventbrite
This research aims to further our understanding of what needs to happen with regards to drivers and barriers to the development of a distributed network of circular supply chains for clothing.
Society and Citizen Policy Advocacy Workshop
8 March 2024 | Sign up via Eventbrite
We invite consumer-citizens to share their ideas for policy on sustainable fashion and clothing. The workshop will begin with a tour of our ‘Regenerative Fashion Hub’, followed by a facilitated discussion in which you can share your thoughts and ideas. Your ideas for policy on sustainable fashion will feed into professional policy research conducted by Policy Connect in collaboration with TCC that will be put in front of policy makers and made publicly available – so your views count!
