DAY 4 (4th August)

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, August 13, 2010

*First factory day – we had so many nice welcomes off every company we visited – and a selection of snacks and drinks at each stop  - which was amazing!

*The day ended with a trip to a button manufacturers where we got to see just how lots o lovely little buttons are made (and we got toffee cake!)

*We arrived at MIST fabric park which MAS Holdings own – its like a big factory park set in the countryside with tropical forests all around – we were staying in a beautiful chalet with huge rooms and massive bathrooms which had open top showers so you could look at the stars whilst you washed your hair!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
