Let's design circular products!
Our Circular Design Software helps your fashion brand become sustainable.
Our Circular Design Criteria (CDC) software helps design and product teams define and evolve circular practices, removing doubt in the decision-making process and guiding designers through the creation of circular products.
With a comprehensive set of more than 150 criteria based on evolving regulations, industry developments and current best-practices, the CDC removes ambiguity around circular product claims, allowing accurate determination of circularity and improving team efficiency. Final product assessment results can be used by designers, product managers and sustainability professionals to gauge success and communicate product claims to partners and customers.
Comprehensive set of 150+ criteria with product type and fibre type specific criteria
Yearly updates that align to industry developments and help brands prepare for upcoming regulations. Criteria includes versioning to ensure accurate product claims
Accelerate your path to circularity with integrations and automations that allow you to pre-fill data in your PLM or other system and retrieve product assessment results for labelling and communication
A performant solution for retailers, allowing brand partners to make credible product claims and seamlessly transfer validation results.
Discover materials suitable for sustainability and circularity
Our Circular Material Library is the first digital showcase of fabrics, yarns, trims, leathers, and leather alternatives that have been tested and validated for future recyclability by our comprehensive Circular Material Check process.
The library gives fashion brands and designers access to hundreds of curated and hand-selected materials which are matched to our innovative recycling partner network. Our selection focuses on highly sustainable, innovative and recyclable materials, enabling convenient and efficient sourcing.
As new innovative materials are continuously entering the market, we work closely with selected material suppliers to keep the library up-to-date. We even co-develop new fabric and trims according to your needs.

We offer Circular Material Checks to ensure that the materials used in your garments meet the requirements of recyclers so that they can be regenerated into fibre at the end of their life.
This includes checking materials that make up a product based on concrete requirements from our large European recycling partner network.* Our aim is to match each product to trusted recycling facilities. Through an in-depth analysis of material composition and chemical treatment, your material will be matched to specific recycling cycles. We will provide you with an evaluation report, including results and recommendations.
Circular Material Checks are offered as standalone purchases and through membership, where members can arrange checks directly through our software for an additional fee. You can find our Product Check here.
*For checks on materials that are retailed to users in other markets (e.g. US, Asia, etc.), please email email@example.com
