Circular materials: Innovative solutions for fashion

  • Subscribe to see all Trends

The fashion sector has been among the first to be called upon by the European Commission to contribute to the achievement of the decarbonisation of the European continent by 2050. Starting with the big fashion houses, involving the entire supply chain and ending with small and medium-sized companies, a paradigm change is underway to convert the fashion sector towards a circular economic model. Through significant efforts in research and development and the use of innovative circular materials, garments characterised by renewable and bio-based, certified and recycled materials with a reduced environmental footprint compared to traditional garments have been brought to the market.

The report brings together a number of Case Studies of companies that have been able to get involved by experimenting and applying the principles of circular economy.

The trends presented in this publication are a short selection of those in MATREC International Observatory.
