'Keep resources
cycling at their
highest value'

We work with fibre to fibre textile recyclers to ensure
clothing can be recycled into new textiles at the end of use

Every recycler has their own set of rules and parameters for the make up of the garments that they can accept and requirements for volumes of delivery. This makes it challenging for brands to work with them directly.
The Circular Textile Foundation removes these barriers by translating their parameters for your garments, consolidating and providing easy routes to their technology.

“We are the world´s first open recycling system closing the loop for blended textile waste. ♻

Today, only a fraction of all textiles produced are recycled. OnceMore® from Södra is the world’s first large-scale process for recycling blended fabrics. The process combines post-consumer textile waste with Södra’s responsible managed forests to produce high-quality textile pulp. This way OnceMore® is closing the loop and enable a circular fashion industry throughout the value chain. Read more about OnceMore® and how we work with:
