LAMK: Creative Design Methods course of the Institute of Design

The objective of the course was to design a user-centred collection for children and have the products be easily recyclable either as a product or as material while observing the principles of waste hierarchy in the product design. For the course, any irregular and undeterminable blended fabrics were removed from the textile sample materials used in wearable design studies at the Institute of Design to ensure that the institute does not produce designers who are content with using fabrics of dubious quality. Using recycled materials is great, of course, but vague mixtures of materials hinder comprehensive recyclability.
