World’s leading industrial thread company Coats has teamed up with ESNE, the largest design and technology university in Spain, to enhance industry learning of fashion design degree students.
The company will create dedicated Coats spaces on the ESNE campus in Madrid. The Clothing and Pattern Making Workshop and Prototyping room will provide students access to a wide range of Coats products and enable them to develop their collections. The room will also have a separate display area showcasing samples of latest product launches and innovative design processes.
In this space, students will be able to learn about all aspects of manufacturing threads, yarns, zips and trims. Coats will also host a series of training courses, webinars, workshops and masterclasses, for both students and teachers.
Coats and ESNE are also planning to collaborate on a research project which involves creating digital tools that facilitate access to training and knowledge in the textile and fashion design sectors. Competitions are also planned for students to demonstrate how they have used Coats solutions and materials in the most innovative way.
