We are dedicated to building a circular and sustainable industry, prioritizing maximum quality, transparency, and measurable traceability. Our approach revolves around an integrated local and scalable ecosystem that covers all stages of the recycling chain.

Together, these efforts contribute to a thriving planet: from the collection of garments to their sorting and recycling in inclusive and innovative workplaces, where waste is reborn as new raw materials. This matter is transformed back into fibres, which are then spun into thread. This thread is used to create fabric that becomes an integral part of designing and manufacturing brand-new garments.
