Textile Sourcing Workshop with Tara St. James of Re:Source(d)


I met Tara St. James when she was the Production Coordinator at Pratt's Brooklyn Fashion Design + Accelerator. She was one of my mentors when I was a venture fellow there for NOORISM and she is a fellow professor in sustainability at the Fashion Institute of Technology.


The journey from raw material through processing, dyeing, and finishing is complex. Sourcing raw materials, identifying the chemicals used in processing, understanding the impact of energy and water use, and analyzing finishing products and processes are just some of the considerations in developing sustainable textiles.


At Re:Source(d) Tara St. James works with her clients to help them understand these challenges and make the best sourcing decisions for their brand's sustainability strategy, aesthetic, supply chain and price point.
