Hi Lauren Ito I have uploaded the BMC to my response above. Unfortunately I couldn't quite wrap my head around the storyboarding activity as the link doesn't have much detail on how to exactly draft this. Could you perhaps show me an example or a template? Thank you!
Hi @Clelie thanks so much for your note and warm words. To answer your questions...
I have documented all the steps in the yarn creation process on this link: https://medium.com/@tanushrishukla/textile-recycling-8561bf6d1f1e
The process from start to finish, as you rightly said, is quite long. However, we have a few advantages: - Geetanjali Woollens is one of India's largest exporters of recycled yarn and have more then sufficient capacity to quickly meet our raw material needs - Our partnership with CORP, which runs 20 women's centres around Mumbai, means we can quickly train and scale up our production team as needed - The time to make each piece can also be reduced by investing in knitting machines that can be manually operated by our craftswomen to weave the fabric much faster--this is something we plan to invest in as soon as we can afford it
Having said that, a handmade product will always take longer to make than a completely machine made one, and we intend to plan our production accordingly.
