Rachel Miller teaches about fiber working, the origin of raw materials, and sustainability in textile design. In this talk, she will trace the movement of fiber from plants and animals to finished products. She will address the ecological, economic, and social impacts of cloth production and use, compare the impact of natural and synthetic textiles, and suggest ways in which designers and consumers can promote sustainability in fashion.
This talk is sponsored by the Williams College Sustainable Food & Agriculture Program and Williams Theatre.
