Biotechnology and recyclability/circularity through Helsinki fashion week

I had the lovely opportunity to discuss with Olivia Rubens, a positive knitwear women’s wear designer, super interesting topics such as sustainability and fashion. These topics within the realm of biotechnology, synthetic biology, the end-of-life of our clothes, and side-streams are at the core of our beliefs. We also discussed human & climate positive centered garments and microbes,  creating new circular systems and new materials from glucose with fungi, and enzymes that eat plastics.
