Project Details

Description

The purpose of CircularTex is to develop and test new textile solutions and value propositions for markets that will lead to a slowing of textile resource loops and have a significant impact on CO2 reductions. By working with both suppliers (producers) and demand (private/public consumers), the project will create 4 pilots that are aligned with local market needs, developed through a user-led design process and based on new circular design strategies.
The pilots will create value through testing how textiles can be kept in circulation for longer, thereby saving resources by avoiding new production, and potentially create new jobs to ensure this once the pilots are scaled.
