Tengri live industry project presentations

Last week 2nd and 3rd year knit students presented the outcomes of the live project set by luxury fashion brand Tengri.

Tengri has a strong ethical stance around sustainability and this formed a core part of the brief. Working with natural yak fibres and yarns as well as other natural fibres. Students experimented with re-using yarns and natural dyeing as part of the process. Due to the natural colour palette, textures and structures formed a key part of the design process. In this instance the outcome was for luxury interiors.
