Circular Material and Product Check

Evaluating products to meet the requirements of current textile recycling technologies is a critical step toward the future of circular fashion.

We offer circular material and product checks to ensure that the garment you design meets the requirements of recyclers so that it can be regenerated into fibre at the end of its life. This involves checking a single material or all components that the product is comprised of based on concrete requirements from our large recycling partner network in Europe*. Our aim is to match the product to trusted recycling facilities.

*for checks on products that are retailed to users in other markets, e.g. US, Asia, etc., please email materials@circular.fashion

Our private label product teams designed new products from the very beginning with circularity in mind and according to concrete recycling requirements that we learned from circular.fashion. We were excited to receive the results of the Circular Product Checks, verifying that each product was recyclable and matched to at least one recycler within circular.fashion’s partner network.

Our product teams are very eager to continue our journey towards circularity and therefore we look forward to roll out circular design trainings across our organization. It’s also rewarding to see our customers appreciate the products that are designed for circularity, as seen through their positive commercial performance
