The Wilson College of Textiles is very excited to host the first annual Evolving Textiles Conference: Materializing the Future. This year’s themes are circularity in textiles and alternative fibers.

While all alternative fibers are welcome, the focus is on hemp, a fiber with exceeding potential and rapid development in the United States. Progress in hemp is being made across NC State University– in the Wilson College of Textiles, the College of Natural Resources, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Industry professionals, students, professors, and the public are welcome to participate in this two-day conference which will highlight the sector’s advances in sustainability through sessions, interaction, and discussions.

This will be an all-encompassing textile sustainability event. The Evolving Textiles Conference’s goal is to develop attainable goals and work toward having a measurable impact on sustainability in the textile industry over time.
