Chemical transparency
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Umeå Institute of Design.

Abstract [en]

The use of chemicals in the textile industry is increasingly recognized as a problem and a matter of public concern. A proper EU policy on the subject is still missing.

However, as testified by the number of self-organized communities and activist campaigns emerging around this theme, a demand for higher transparency is rising from the base of society.

A kit made of a new label graphic; a hyperspectral camera and a mobile app have been design as a possible strategy to allow fashion companies to better meet the needs of their consumers.

This final configuration opens up for a reflection about design practice, trust and transparency.
