The living textile heritage of the Alps is a celebration of AlpTextyles’ first year of work through talks, networking, and an exhibition. The project partners present mappings, consumer insights, industry best practices, and community experiences in a journey to rediscover the Alpine living textile heritage – and head to a circularity-based industry and lifestyles.
AlpTextyles is an Interreg Alpine Space project that gathers the textile heritage of the Alps to tackle climate change and optimize local resources. The goal is to accelerate the relocalization of sustainable, circular textile value chains in the Alps, reduce the environmental impact of the industry, and promote greener practices and lifestyles.
The event is presented by AlpTextyles and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, under the patronage of Laurent Wauquiez, President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region.
The event is coordinated by emlyon business school, an AlpTextyles partner.
