  • CIRCULARITY: Digitise second hand clothes with Elena Ferrero

    5 GIU 2023 · Everybody talks about circularity in the fashion industry, but what does it exactly means? Is the fashion industry circular? How can we make a profitable business model with circularity? Thanks to Elena Ferrero to share with us her project, Re4circular, that is looking into digitise the sorting process of recycling clothes. Together with Sara Secondo they founded a female social start up, Atelier Riforma to solve the biggest issue that brands has: how to collect and sort old clothes? You cannot do it yourself, unless you are one of the 5 giant in the world, but even there you need to make sure to don't mix material compositions that won't be possible to recycle. Recycling companies are not always profitable in a sustainable way as the sorting process can be very time consuming. Technology need to help fashion and that's why we love this project Good luck Elena & Sara

  • How can Denim be Sustainable? - with Laura Vicaria from MUD Jeans

    2 GIU 2023 · Denim can be one of the most polluting material. This is why MUD jeans has born tackling the challenge of making this industry more sustainable. MUD Jeans is one of the first B Corp that not only reduce the environmental impact of the production process but also take care of the end of life of the product driving into a circular model. Doing this they save: -93% of water -73% of CO2 -51% biodiversity impact How can they do that? Post Consumer Recycled cotton, innovative technologies (as foam dyeing) and good chemical mangement are the key pillars for this shift of mindset. Yes, "recycle" become one of the most popular word in the last 12 months, but how can we collect enough old clothes and what we do with that? Accepting that not everything can be solved at once but pushing the boundaries makes the fashion industry closer and closer to the perfect set up What is the role and what are the limits of certifications? They need to support the fashion industry and the final customer to share the right message in an understandable way. Should it be done from an NGO or through a government regulation we don't know yet but there is still room to make the sustainable claims more understandable and clear. And of course we can't miss traceability, Regenerative farming and more... Thank you so much Laura Vicaria former CSR Manager MUD Jeans to push the boundaries to the next level and to share it with us.

    28 MAR 2022 · IMPACT OF DENIM  If you are passionate about denim you can't miss this episode.   Today we have the pleasure to have with us one of the biggest expert of denim from the brand side, Nicolas Prophte   There are a lot of misconception on denim impact. A lot of developments have been done in the last 5-6 years from the #environmental to the #traceability side.  We wrongly think that the dyeing andwashing process is the most polluting part but is the growing of the cotton that has the biggest impact and that needs most of the attention.  It is the right time to put in place Physical and Digital traceability of the material to analyse and improve the real numbers.  This is the only way brands can proof the real impact beside the specific #certifications that can be a starting point but can't proof much.   This means to be responsible for the product we are producing and responsability (for the planet, environment and people) is one of the key interpretation of Nicolas for sustainability   He associate the denim process and supply chain with the process of cooking where ingredients and kitchens have a key role.   But how can we calculate the impact of denim? What are the tool out there? Who is in charge of making the rules?   Thank you so much Nicolas to bring awareness to our community in a such delicate topic Let's start the next chapter of denim

  • Can a BAG be VEGAN? With Joey Pringle

    14 MAR 2022 · Joe Pringle the Co-Founder of Veshin Factory talk with us a bout his journey.  If the meaning of vegan food is clear and understandable the meaning of a vegan bag is not.  Of course a bag will never eat meat. Especially when we associate the meaning of sustainability with the word vegan in fashion it is a clear greenwashing. No animal is killed because of leather in fact leather is a byproduct from the meat industry that would be burned otherwise. Until a certain extend we could consider this material as a circular bio material. Circular because it comes from a waste and his durability is the longest of all the materials as well it can be repaired.  But if your factory embrace Buddhism you can't of course use leather and you start to look into alternatives materials that are not the easiest ones to industrialise.  Joey also looks beyond a common factory mindset as profit is not everything but wellbeing of the employee has also a crucial role in his view.  Can the fashion industry make also this step and don't think only about have higher turnover but a better wellbeing?  Looking at the most popular fashion magazines it seems we are still very far from there.   Thank you joey for sharing with us your view and to open up our mind into a different challenges we do not always think
