TOGETHER, WE CREATE
Making a change towards circularity takes the effort of everyone: the textile industry, certification and legal authorities, media and, last but not least, consumers.
Being a member of the CIRCULAR CLOTHING COOPERATIVE implies ownership and commitment – towards a zero-waste textile industry for a better planet.
Bundling forces of small fashion and textile labels under the roof of CIRCULAR CLOTHING COOPERATIVE is not limited to the Swiss borders. With the aim of contributing to a paradigm shift in the fashion and textile industry we do not limit ourselves to markets, but focus on Europe.
No label can go circular on its own, but many labels together can make it happen.
