Over 3% of all available water on earth is used in the textile industry every year. In 2030 the demand for water will be 40% above global water supply if we keep making textiles like we do. It is time to challenge the fashion status quo by making fabrics & fashion with minimal use of water. We truly belief we need to think and act differently. That is why we develop high quality fabrics and a ReBlend collection of fashion and beyond. And we enable designers and brands to put circularity into practice by collaboration and co-creation projects. – REBLEND
Circular is the new black
It is high time for better textiles.
Better fashion, better backpacks and better interior design for every moment of your day.
Made of 100% upcycled textiles designed with respect for our planet and made with care.
Choosing upcycled yarn over virgin cotton reduces the demand for virgin materials, saving lots of water, chemicals, greenhouse emission and land use.
The REBLEND exhibition illustrates the perspective and impact of fabrics of 100% upcycled from postconsumer textiles and postconsumer plastics.
Straight from the inner ring of the economist Kate Raworth’s ‘‘doughnut’, the ecologically safe and socially just space in which humanity should strive to live.
What makes you look good and feel good will make you do good. Every day.
Come and see our exhibition is in the basement of Plan B, Hurksestraat 19.
ReBlend has committed itself to experimenting in recent years with mechanical recycling awaiting the development of new materials and chemical recycling technology. The need for non-renewable materials can be diminished right now by using regenerated textile fibres so that less cotton will be produced and dyeing and bleaching is not necessary.
For ReBlend Enschede Textielstad developed a custom fabric from their own recycled yarn range. We strongly believe collaboration is key in the transition towards a sustainable and local textile industry.
