Circular workwear collectionWorkwear design by re-using industrial textiles
Workwear design by re-using industrial textiles.
Fashion is one of the most polluting industries, producing thousands of tonnes of textile waste per year. Introducing circular business models in the European fashion sector is a challenge and one of its pillars is to reuse waste in new products.
The project aims to create a representable workwear collection for hotel service personnel made from repurposed industrial textiles in the EU. Focused on advantaged bespoke design and developing different sustainable treatments for dyeing and finishing to the textile wastes to create a high quality B2B collection. All the articles in the collection will be easy to customise and will include bespoke features. By changing the colours, length and functional details, the pieces can be adapted to the customers’ needs, while supporting local industry.
