30 minutes

The modern, linear manufacturing that is typical of much fashion and textile production can be hugely wasteful and damaging to the environment. While the sector has been wising up, it’s not happening fast enough. We meet two entrepreneurs who explain how innovations in technology and a revolution in aftercare can ensure that fashion and textile production needn’t cost the earth. Beth Esponnette is the head of Unspun, a robotics and digital clothing company that builds custom jeans on demand for every individual consumer. Its mission is to reduce those grim global carbon-emissions figures through automated, localised and intentional manufacturing. Vanessa Jacobs is the co-founder of the world’s first aftercare platform for fashion, a business that helps the world’s biggest brands offer care, repair and restoration to their customers.
