Grain, Emma (2017) A Closed Loop Model for 3D Printing Fashion. Circular Transitions: Proceedings. A Mistra Future Fashion Conference on Textile Design and the Circular Economy. pp. 169-183.

This paper discusses the 2 Way Closed Loop Model using recycled polyester (PET polyethylene terephthalate) developed by the author (in 2014) and its relativity to the development of sustainable practices in fashion and 3D printing in fashion. Bringing together sustainability and innovative technology, the focus of this practice based study aims to evaluate the early possibilities of such a model through design and exploring manufacturing methods as well as interviewing Fashion and Technical experts from academia and industry for their views on the model, methods, final usability, constraints and opportunities.
