– Message from FabCafe for Offline Event Attendees –

Requested countermeasures against coronavirus infection include the following:

Thank you very much for your understanding.

  • In the Loop is a circularity-driven popup community hosted FabCafe in partnership with Ekolokal.

    In the Loop is a place for creatives, startups, and companies from around the world to try out new things and make connections around a shared consciousness and passion for circular design and sustainability-driven ideas, products and services.

    Through the In the Loop community, we aim to increase meaningful collaboration, experiment boldly with new materials, methods, and ideas, and engage deeply with local and global sustainability-inspired creatives, startups, and companies.

  • “In the Loop” has two meanings:

    First, “loop” is a reference to circular economy which aims to replace the linear create-use-throw away lifecycle in favor of a circular system where materials are reused, products are upcycled and waste is designed out.

    Second, “In the Loop” can also mean “to be in the know”.

    Together as a community, members aspire towards gaining a high level of consciousness and shared knowledge around circular design and sustainability. This feeling of inclusion and shared consciousness aims to encourage a deeper and meaningful connection among community members.

  • DIY your DYE: An indigo dyeing workshop where you can dye your own clothes, socks, etc.! 

    Indigo dyeing has been a tradition in Japan since the Asuka period, and has been loved by many people for its beautiful color and health benefits. In recent years, attention to indigo dyeing has been gradually increasing due to a new focus on sustainability in the fashion industry and a reevaluation of traditional culture. Indigo products, which can be used for years to come, are perfect for those who care about the earth and want to keep using their products for a long time.
