Why circularity

Not only do we offer a solution for your textile waste, but also for your new corporate clothing. Through our unique process, we can turn your old textiles into new items for your business. These items can in turn be used to make new items when they reach the end of their lifecycle. In this way we complete the circle.

our impact

When growing commodities such as cotton, a lot of water, pesticides and oil are used. In addition, a lot of co2 is emitted in this process.
Growing cotton consumes an awful lot of water, sometimes as much as 17,000 liters of water per T-shirt. Pesticides and chemicals are an essential part of textile production. While growing cotton, people face incredibly high risks to their health and well-being. Dyeing 1 kilo of cotton requires at least 100 liters of water. So by making our items from 100% recycled textiles, we save tremendously on cultivating raw materials and making new textile products.

In many textile factories worldwide, workers are put behind a machine for an average of 18 hours, 7 days a week for a wage of $5 a month. This applies to adults, but also to children. With us, child labor is strictly prohibited, and workers receive good working conditions and fair wages.

Not only does the production of clothing bring about these problems, but the disposal of clothing is also one of the larger causes of pollution in the textile world. In the Netherlands, a consumer throws away about 18 kilos per person per year. Mostly in clothing containers. Approx. 324 million kilos per year only in the Netherlands. When collecting textiles in clothing containers, only 6% gets a second life! The rest is transported in bales to countries in Africa where it is burned in large quantities. By reusing this discarded clothing as raw materials for new textile products, we reduce the waste mountain and reduce CO2 emissions from the unnecessary burning of clothing.
