Disseminating research and moving it along to adoption and commercialisation is central to our mission. To achieve these goals, we value input from people working across the sector in the UK.

We aim to connect as well as to inform, enabling businesses, policymakers, academics and others to share information, knowledge and ideas, and debate the challenges and issues facing the fashion and textile industry.

Membership is free and it’s easy to join as an organisation or as an individual. Please contact us for more information.
