PCIAW® Circular Textile & Garment Innovation Award Application - Manufacturer Awards 2024

The PCIAW® Circular Textile & Garment Innovation Award invites suppliers to apply in partnership with end-user customers, or for a new certified product that is readily available on the market, suppliers can enter as a standalone application or in collaboration with key partners.

This prestigious honour celebrates innovation in the circular economy, in creating a technical professional clothing product or collection that uses recycled materials without a reduction in performance or durability with a clear end-of-life plan in a closed-loop system.

Judges will also consider effective supply chain collaboration, digital tracking and identifications systems, end-user education and engagement for return of products and the commercial viability of the solution.

Submissions will be evaluated by the independent judging panel based on evidence of maintained performance, functionality and longevity; justified choices for adoption of recycled materials and/or alternative natural fibres and/or biosynthetic fibres; innovative textile properties, modular design strategies to replace/repair damaged components to extend the life of the product and a clear plan for closed-loop recycling considering disassembly for non-recyclable components.

If you need any guidance on entering into the most suitable category, please contact harry@pciaw.org.

*Please note products being entered into the PCIAW® Awards must be readily available on the market.
