We develop strategies to integrate sustainability throughout the supply chain with transparency, communications and education as integral elements.
The fashion industry is notorious for its use and abuse of our planets raw materials, water, energy and people. To create change, we are building a resource hub of responsibly made materials and trims, which features some of the most sustainable and innovative materials from around the globe. Through our global networks we can connect you with partners that offer sustainable materials to inspire new ways to create and produce.
Our workshops cover the spectrum from Sustainability Fundamentals, to Design Strategies for Circularity, Innovations in Materials, Supply Chain Transparency and Strategic Communications.

CIRCULAR FASHION SYSTEMS

A SIMPLIFIED MODEL OF THE FASHION SYSTEM WITH FOCUS ON MOVING TO 'CLOSING THE LOOP' AT END OF PRODUCT'S USABLE LIFE.
With growing resource scarcity and increasing volumes of waste, its imperative that the clothing industry must move towards a circular system to remain viable. Both in the eyes of customers and to continue to have feedstock to make new products.
By developing a framework on how to move to a circular economy, we can guide on moving away from the current linear models towards circular ones, just like nature’s own eco system. This includes everything from how you design, develop and produce your products to changing your business models and ensuring clothes are kept at their optimal value for as long as possible.
Product design, performance and stewardship are key considerations when working towards a more circular fashion system. By mapping the life cycle of your product, social and environmental impacts can be honed in on and macro systems and partnership established to facilitate circularity. As a brand, ask yourself: How can what I produce be used more, and once its stopped being used how can it be recovered and reused?
Moving towards a circular system is an exciting opportunity for forward-thinking brands and we are passionate about working with these trailblazers to help them achieve this goal.
