Abstract

A transition of the textile industry towards a circular economy requires fundamental changes to how the industry operates. One of these is in adopting textile-to-textile recycling where the raw material for new products is sourced from worn out garments and other textiles.This case wallet describes how ten Nordic brands are engaging in this transition, what challenges they have experienced, how they have solved these and how they perceive the future for the industry as a whole. Developing strong partnerships across the value chain are a key factor in the pathway forward.
