The Textiles Environment Design Project (TED)

TED is a research project involving design staff practitioners at Chelsea. Staff and students work collaboratively and on individual projects. This unique research cluster, established in 1996, seeks to 'explore the role that the designer can play in producing textiles that are more environmentally friendly'.

TED Resource

Through the TED Resource the project seeks to help students and SME's make more informed decisions. Starting points for research may be theory, process or materials. TED has developed a series of environmentally positive design strategies.

The Textiles Future Research Group (TFRG)

As Associate Director of TFRG Rebecca works towards extending TED's influence and opportunities to a broader group of designers and students.
