Only Natural Student Design Competition

Here at Only Natural, we celebrate the sustainable and highlight a new way forward. A way that puts only natural fibers and materials – from the clothes we wear to the spaces we live in – at the heart of all we do. Join us on the journey to a greener future, as we work to slow the fashion cycle and transform natural materials into sustainable items to be cherished for life.

If you are a design student, this is the place to showcase your talent by entering one of our international design competitions.

We challenge students to create bespoke items from only natural fibers and materials with sustainability at their core. Create an innovative and beautiful design in one of the two competitions – fashion and home – made from only natural fibers and materials. Show our judges and spectators that there is another way – a way without unnecessary waste and with the planet’s future in mind.

Designers can enter one of five categories; clothing, footwear, accessories, furniture, or interiors.

The competition, run with our partners at Arts Thread, opens 15th February 2024, and closes on the 31st May 2024, midnight BST. Any entries submitted after that date will not be accepted.
