WEAR2GO has focused on the efficiency, accessibility and affordability of technologies that make a circular textile concept possible in the clothing industry. In order to be able to process textiles in a sustainable manner, complete clothing assembly is necessary. Of the large quantities of textiles that are not yet separated into pure mono-flows, a small part is eligible for downcycling – the rest disappears in incinerators. In our opinion, this is an unnecessary waste of valuable resources.
Wear2® Ecostitching Technology
This technology was developed in 2014 at the initiative of the British government by various knowledge institutes and progressive sustainable companies. The aim was to create a solution for end-of-life textiles and to avoid the environmental pollution when it comes to further waste processing. This in addition to the useless and costly waste of raw materials. Wear2 ® Ecostitching makes it possible to separate various textiles types and accessories from each other within just 60 seconds, without damaging the materials. The possibility of upcycling will be increased by creating mono-flows.
How does this clothing dismantling technique work?
Wear2 ® Ecostitching uses Wear2 ® Thread combined with microwave technology. Wear2 ® Thread is an innovative, patented sewing thread that consists of recycled polyester in combination with an innovative core composition partly consisting of Copper Sulfide. These yarns can be used in a garment in exactly the same way as regular yarns. Microwave technology breaks the core of the yarn, guaranteeing complete disassembly at the end of its life. This technology makes the disassembly of clothing less labor intensive, guarantees large volumes and makes the processing process considerably cheaper.
