Fashion Open Studio and the British Council will present a series of studio events and workshops with nine international designers in response to the themes of the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26. Launching at Digital Design Weekend at the V&A, during London Design Festival in September 2021.

About Bora Studio
Bora Studio is a slow fashion, environmentally responsible clothing brand that uses natural fabrics and dyes. The idea is to make products that have high utility value and produce them with the least environmental cost. To make tote bags, shawls, casual wear, the studio uses cotton canvas, hemp, bamboo fabric, raw silk, Himalayan nettle and eco printing methods. This is to promote Nepali fabrics as well as shifts people’s attention from fast fashion to sustainable and ethical fashion. Preserving the natural resources for the future generation through sustainability is what we are focusing on. We as a sustainable and ethical company are trying to defy the status quo of the most prevalent course fast fashion. We urge our clients to initiate the change along with us and be more conscious and selective when it comes down to the consumption of clothing items. Reduce, reuse and recycle are the three mantras we emphasize the most upon.
The digital event series will take place on 25 September 12 November, forming part of the British Council's The Climate Connection global programme. The event series will be animated by a physical activation in Glasgow during COP26 (1 -12 November) which will offer the public and COP26 attendees alike an opportunity to interact with the open studio activities in person.
