The Textiles Technologies Project were contacted by one of their clients at the end of July 2011 to invite their Project Officer in Manufacturing, Hannah Wright, to an all expenses paid trip to their manufacturing facilities in Alytus, Lithuania. Hannah was able to see at first hand the results of the pattern cutting and proto typing work she has carried out for them through the Textiles Technologies Project.
Hannah was given a guided tour of the factory, and was shown, in depth, the different departments of the factory which included their pattern cutting room, CAD room, sublimated printing facilities as well as their main production area. Hannah was also given the chance to see how the factory processes their orders into organized production schedules so that they can successfully meet their clients requested arrival dates.

“Different sheep breeds produce varying qualities of fibre and every fleece has a use, whether it’s for high-end fashion or building insulation. It’s a complete waste to be discarding this natural resource so we’re looking for fact and figures to address the needs of farmers and industry demand to try and increase supply of the fibre in every form.”
Hannah Wright produces her own range, see below:
Hannah Wright is about traditional tailoring with a contemporary twist.
For Hannah, designing is an expression of who she is as a person. It's not about the clothes, it's about the person's lifestyle. Inspired by colours, textures and shapes, Hannah designs for the balance of comfort and luxury as well as the balance of what is practical and desirable. Farming is in Hannah Wrights genes and she wants it to enjoy being fashionable again.
