Novel Laser-Finishing of Textiles for a Closed-loop Polyester Economy

Date: 2005 – 2012

Supervisory Team: Prof. Stephen Scrivener, Prof. Rebecca Earley and Prof. Kay Politowicz

This PhD project was part of the AHRC funded project Worn Again: Rethinking Recycled Textiles with TED. It explores technologies that could potentially change the way we recycle our textile waste, placing the designer at the centre of a process of multidisciplinary design thinking and enterprise. By focussing on the concept of 'life-cycle design', her aim is to create beautiful and functional synthetic materials, while preserving them as monomaterials, suitable for future recycling.
