Circular Textiles – Ready to Market

On 15th February 2019 the Circular Textiles – Ready to Market event was held in Amsterdam. It was attended by over 120 participants across the textiles industry.

Participants from ECAPs nine fibre to fibre trials each did a short presentation on their experience from the project, their learnings and their plans for the future. Each of them started with a high-energy fashion show demo to showcase their recycled fibre clothing and materials.

There were also a number of workshops in the afternoon which covered  leanings and insights from other areas of the project including sustainable design, new business models, consumer engagement and collection & recycling of discarded clothes and textiles.

The project ran for three and a half years, ending in March 2019.  Research, case studies and recommendations will be shared on the ECAP website for years thereafter to help the sector continue its path to sustainability.
