DESIGN FOR CIRCULARITY

offers Design and System Innovation for a circular future of fashion — already today. We developed an innovative solution to indeed close the loop of textiles and to realize a cradle to cradle inspired circular economy:

THE EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP PLATFORM

This platform interconnects future leading material developments, circular design, circular retail models and closed loop recycling technologies. A scannable tool in each product enables this though transparency and flow of information between all actors involved

JOIN US!

All actors along the circular value chain are invited to join the EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP PLATFORM. Collaboratively we co-create circular products with future thinking brands and establish the circular infrastructures between all participants to keep the products in the loop and providing advantages for everyone involved.

The Innovation

A digital tool integrated in each product enables transparency, interconnection and flow of information between all stakeholders along the whole product‘s life cycle.

In order to guarantee that the garments will indeed be reused and recycled, the concept is communicated through a digital tool integrated into each garment. It provides transparency, customer involvement and a coherent interconnection with transfer of these information between all parts of the cycle which is crucial to realizing this intention and making this circular system beneficial for companies, customers and the environment.

Ina Budde

During her studies of fashion design at HAW Hamburg she created numerous award winning collections with different sustainable approaches and developed a focus on circular design strategies. She won a scholarship to complete the MA Programme ‘Sustainability in Fashion’ at ESMOD Berlin while developing sustainable collections for innovative labels and inventing the EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP model — a system for a circular industry structure that has been selected as one of the innovations of LAUNCH Nordic 2014 and received the NEXT ECONOMY AWARD 2015. Her first circular collection FUTURE PROOF for the label Acronym followed this model and won the lavera Green Fashion award 2015. Besides spreading her EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP model with ‚Design for Circularity’ she gives workshops and lectures on ‚FUTURE DESIGN CONCEPTS - sustainable design strategies in fashion’ at several universities. Ina Budde is founding member of the global Open Source Circular Economy association and co-initiated in this frame the first Circular Textile Challenge Berlin.
