Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Climate Change - United Nations Sustainable Development
"To turn things around, we must make a choice: we can keep on with business as usual and hope to survive the consequences... or take a good hard look at ourselves in the mirror and admit that we need a drastic and dramatic change," Fashion Industry, UN Pursue Climate Action for Sustainable Development | UNFCCC.
In a new textiles economy, clothes, textiles, and fibres are kept at their highest value during use and re-enter the economy afterwards, never ending up in waste. With specific emphasis on innovation towards a different system, a new textiles economy presents an opportunity to deliver sustainability with better economic, social, and environmental outcomes.
(New Textiles Economy - Ellen MacArthur)
There is a need to change the way we design, manufacture, buy... and implement new business models that transform the traditional linear structure to new circular methods.
A garmentʼs impact is directly related to how it is designed, which is why we design with a zero-waste philosophy. Starting the design process from recycled raw materials to create new garments is our first step towards a more sustainable future. Our commitment is to reduce our impact by using less polyester, natural resources, water, and chemicals.
