Course Description
DSMR T280 - Textile & Society
Fabric is all around us: from what we wear, to the sheets on our beds, the upholstery in our homes, and to the d├ęcor in our spaces. Learn about the process, system, and global industries behind fabrics in this co-taught course. Through an interdisciplinary and hands-on approach, we will study textiles and society by exploring the fundamental processes involved in producing natural and man-made fabrics as they relate to Design and Merchandising. Students will gain an understanding of the constraints, challenges, and opportunities presented by the need to design products, systems, and services that are more socially, environmentally and economically thoughtful. Throughout we will consider sustainability and principles for a circular economy: design out waste and pollution; keep products and materials in use; and regenerate natural systems.
