A British start-up designing recyclable outerwear garments is looking for sustainable production partners
The UK company is a start-up British brand designing sustainable womenswear for the circular fashion industry. They are looking for a manufacturer for the production of their environmentally friendly and sustainable performance outerwear coats. Ideally, but optionally, partners will have disassembling facilities to help the UK company recycle and upcycle these garments.
The British company is a start-up brand designing and developing innovative sustainable womenswear with innovative fabrics and fibres. They work with natural fabrics but also high quality recycled textile to create eco-friendly fashion products.
The new brand is currently offering high performance jackets that are made from sustainable fibres such as recycled polyester, organic cotton, hemp, mushroom-type of leather.
The UK start-up is looking for a manufacturer to produce these outerwear (coats/jackets) in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.
They would also like to find a partner who will be able to disassemble the whole garment to be upcycle and then made into a new outerwear. This request could be fulfilled by the original manufacturer of the garment or a different company that has the disassembling know-how and the right facilities to upcycle textile.
The UK company's vision is to work within a sustainable circular fashion economy. Their mission is to be completely transparent to their customers by making traceable and environmentally friendly clothing in a fair way from start to finish. This focus on transparency means that they want to be able to inform their customers on how and where the product they buy is made. Therefore it will be important for the UK to have a close relationship with the manufacturing partner that is open minded and flexible for visits.
A manufacturing agreement is sought.
