Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design Live Project – Smart Sustainable Lace.
are of Eva Jack final development boards, using our waste clippings,
combining and compressing them and using latex to make a solid form*
recently completed a project where we set a live brief for the Textiles
students of DJCAD. The brief was based around the fact the we encounter
various elements of textile waste during our manufacturing process,
such as our selvedge off cuts and fibrous clippings form our madras
fabrics. DJCAD lecturers thought this would make a fantastic project to
challenge the student to develop new textiles and products incorporating
our waste, therefore re-using and re-purposing material that is
normally thrown away!
The winner of the project - Eva Jack -
was chosen last week and we are thrilled with the result of her research
and development! See above images of her final developments!
Eva’s project from her initial research through to her final concept was
very professional. The overall theme was clearly illustrated and
developed, the colour theme established in her sketches and photographs
also flowed through successfully. Using our waste product in a
sustainable way is an issue close to the hearts of the team here at MYB
and Eva managed to develop a product that is not far from being market
ready in its current form, but it also leaves lots of room for further
development into other sectors of the interiors market including
flooring, wall and surface applications and possible screens or room
Eva’s project was very intelligently thought through and
professionally tackled, resulting in a fantastic addition to her
portfolio and a starting point for dialogue with industry, should she
wish to develop this further.

We were also really pleased the with many of other students work, and found the quality of work to be very impressive.
We gave a special commendation to the following students too: Claire BellLynsey Currie, Ruth Hill, Mairi Claire MacDonald,Rowan McIntosh, Leigh Anne Morrison, Rachel Sanders, Daisy Stott, Kayley Thomson, Sarah Watt.
-We were really impressed with Lyndsey Curries work (above) It was fashion focused, sport luxe which combined our waste with technical textiles be weaving with fibre optics, we liked the intricacy and and delicate colour work she achieved.
We loved the playfulness of these designs from another student. The girly pom-pom details against the punched glossy fabric. We particularly love the fact the colour schemes pre-empted the Pantone Colours of the year announcement!
We love the vibrancy of this students work and their use of perspex to play with colour, light and opacity!
We love the delicate structure detailing and the warm colour tones taken from inspiration of from the MYB Mill.
We loved being part of the project and thanks for to the lecturers of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and thanks for approaching us to take part, we hope you and the students enjoyed it too!
