For the purposes of this exercise, I am using the term re-use in its broadest sense (eg, using again, mending, recycling, transforming, etc). You may respond to the questions by writing about the past, present, or both. 200-300 words 1) What were/are the ‘raw materials’ of re-used textiles? Do these materials relate to any particular environments? 2) What skills are needed to re-use textiles? 3) What technologies are used to re-use textiles? 4) What forms of protection do re-used textiles offer?
