We are a newly started London-based business that are looking to produce clean-cut basics and wardrobe staples of the highest quality from 100% recycled materials. It is key for the entire supply chain to be in the UK and for the business to adopt and apply a 100% circular model.
I have myself over 5 years’ experience from the retail & supply chain industry having worked for H&M and Amazon within merchandising, buying, finance & supply chain.
What are your aspirations and plans for the future?:
Our plan during the coming 6 months is to launch a sample collection where we test the commercial suitability of the business idea. The aim would be to source textile waste from the U.K., shred it into lose fibre, blend and spin it back into workable fabric and subsequently produce a fashion collection consisting of 3-4 different coloured t-shirts of ca 50-100 pieces each. We are currently in the look for experts and potential partners within the production processes mentioned above to further build knowledge but also to understand what the potential cost per unit would be.
What types of projects are you interested in working on through Future Fashion Factory?:
Creating small volume collections using new textile technologies would be at heart of our business model. Even if the long-term aim is to make this idea a commercial success, we would always be looking to sustainably use the latest textile technologies in the production processes. As part of the sustainable USP of Against One, we would want take part in recycling textile waste into high value products. This would be key in supporting our circular business model. Once we have the final product, a lot time and effort would need to go towards communication and marketing. How can we clarify to customers the worth of choosing circular?
