Friday, May 24th, saw the official launch of the Dutch Circular Textile Valley (DCTV) at Circl in Amsterdam.
DCTV has brought together a broad coalition of brands, retailers, manufacturers, their associations, knowledge institutes and government bodies that will collaborate on moving to a more circular clothing and textiles value chain in the Netherlands. The DCTV team is run by MODINT, Fashion for Good, Circle Economy, ABN-Amro, MVO Nederland and het Groene Brein.
The aim of the project is to reduce the Dutch apparel and textile’s impacts on water, raw materials and climate. It goes much beyond recycling and includes stimulation of a more durable way to use clothing, stimulating the 2nd hand market and improving the results of material and fibre recycling to be able to actually use a greater share of collected textiles and clothing. Concretely, the project will focus on creating projects involving fibre recycling techniques, circular design, business and brand development and corporate and workwear.
