Abstract

Values such as circularity, local production, and the use of more environmental-friendly materials have started to reshape various domestic industries. Because of the social and environmental challenges that the Textile & Clothing industry faces, solutions proper to slow fashion practices are gaining importance. The present chapter presents a case study of a local production network that roots in the maker movement and experiments with various aspects of circular practices, to develop new material: the Tomato Textile project. Based on ethnography and action research methods, the challenges of entrepreneurial practices in eco-innovation are identified and discussed.
