Our mission is to show how extending textile lifecycles creates a new culture of circularity and production methods for fashion.
The design and production concept has been awarded by the British Council. The awareness of waste side streams and their potential for the fashion industry has been recognized by a wider audience. The production method has been developed to serve the seasonal TAUKO womenswear collection presented at the international fashion weeks (Berlin, Paris).
The reuse of industrial textiles for fashion is based on the collaboration with the local textile maintenance services, dye houses, and sewing workshops.
Operating a business that builds products from the waste of other industries requires a specific supply chain and product design efforts. These business models are beginning to merge in small scale businesses, but have the potential to inspire customers and new innovations. This act can be limitedly scaled in where reusable materials are available in suitable form and volume.
