Remake Textile

The event is conceived as a space for exploring different approaches to circular systems of textile production using innovative processes and materials. We’ll discuss all of these aspects with sector experts involved in training, the development of new methods and materials, experimentation and upcycling.

A circular system demands rethinking the way products are made and, just as importantly, the system to which they belong. This represents one of the main challenges for implementing circularity and developing innovative processes in textiles and fashion.

Research and experimentation are key to helping the textile industry make the necessary transition to a circular system. This can be achieved in two ways: through the development of new methodologies such as upcycling, which uses waste or unwanted textiles and other materials to design and make clothing of greater quality; and the development of technologies to produce new materials or models for making clothing. Lastly, the implementation of these new processes in industry is dependent on working closely with brands to ensure the feasibility of the transition.

To shed further light on all of these aspects, three experts with very different but complementary profiles talk about their experiences and work in the sector.


  • Alex Hug is textile creator and designer who trained at a variety of schools and universities in Europe (including Central Saint Martins, Parsons Paris and ESMOD in Berlin). With an eye to the future and looking for sustainable alternatives for the fashion industry through upcycling, in 2016 she created the fashion brand A HUG. Reuse, redesign and recycle are the hallmarks of her collections.

  • Adele Orcajada is the academic director at the Basque BioDesign Center, a designer and teacher at various fashion design schools in Spain and the United Kingdom. She is an expert in materials research and a partner at MaterialDriven, where she is investigating innovation in materials with companies, universities and institutions.

  • María Almazán analyses and researches new sustainable methodologies. A pioneer in the transition of the Spanish textile sector to a more sustainable system, in 2016 she became a social entrepreneur fellow of Ashoka after launching Latitude, a company specialising in the transformation of the textile and fashion sector through a network of workshops on social responsibility, innovation in sustainable materials and the provision of consulting for major brands.

Moderated by: Natalia Castellanos, founding partner and project coordinator at Altrapo Lab, a cooperative that promotes and provides training in textile recycling and sustainable design.
