If you design or sell apparel made with cotton, don’t miss our 2/18 webinar “Transparent Cotton Sourcing: Best Practices for Supply Chain Management,” with U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol, TextileGenesis and Customs law firm Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A.
Fashion shouldn’t be a choice between sustainability and style. And lower impact inputs don’t have to mean a staid finished product.
This is the idea behind Blue of a Kind, an Italian fashion company that upcycles vintage products and scraps into new, contemporary circular garments. Beyond being a company, Blue of a Kind was conceived as a community for sustainable fashion.
Officina+39 similarly embraces circularity to lessen the eco impact of dyeing. The company’s Recycrom dyestuff range is made from pre-owned clothing and textile scraps.
Blue of a Kind and Officina+39 are now partnering to bring together their respective waste upcycling processes to save water and make a sustainable statement. The collaboration began remotely mid-pandemic, and has just had its official public launch.
