Less than 1% of all textiles worldwide are recycled into new textile products.
(Ellen MacArthur Foundation 2017)
Minimising use of virgin raw materials, extending textile lifecycles and reducing consumption is imperative to meet new global sustainability standards.
The UK industry is leading on new ways to extend, reuse, repair and recycle.
Renowned for our innovation and creativity, we are ambitiously designing for circularity. Creating high performing textiles that are durable, designed to be repairable, reused and recycled, ensures they are long lived and long loved.
UK producers are committed to creating quality products that last, while their emotional durability drives conscious consumption and moves the dial towards slow fashion and timeless style.
