In Pursuit of Circular

Three hundred years ago, the textile industry pioneered the mindset and technology that sparked the industrial revolution. The Spinning Jenny and the Jacquard enabled mass-production, automation and efficiency. Today, the textile industry is stuck in an outdated paradigm with unacceptable environmental and social consequences. The time has come for the textile industry to once again pioneer progress and reshape the way we do business. Circular economy is the path forward. If waste can be turned into resources, we live in abundance. The shift from linear to circular production is made possible by a shift from confusion to transparency, from products to solutions and from hierarchic structures to co-creative clusters. If revolution is possibility, co-creation is key. One company cannot change much, but a network of collaborating designers, brands, retailers, visionaries, developers, producers, activists and users can. This is your invitation to collaborate the next form of economy. If you want to be a part of the transformation, we want to join forces. Together we can reimagine the textile industry one solution at a time.

This is us.

This is our business.

This is our industrial revolution.

DA Inside: Workwear

Dutch Awearness produces circular work clothes in partnership with Tricorp Workwear, Heigo, HAVEP, Uniform Brands (Orcon Workwear, Simon Jersey) and Alsico. Together, we make high visibility clothing, protective clothing (PPE) and regular workwear. Among our products are hi vis shirts, overalls, safety vests, work jackets and work uniforms. The circularity of the garments is guaranteed by the DA Inside brand, which you can find on the outer shell of the garments. The circular workwear can be bought via our resellers, which you can find below.

 
 
Circular Content Management System (CCMS)

CCMS has been designed to enable Dutch Awearness’ customers and partners to move from a linear supply chain to a circular economy. CCMS is an online tool providing integrated track and trace services. It enables the customer to see what materials have been used, who has manufactured the garment, and the impact of the garment’s production on the environment. CCMS is essential in the circular model to manage the return of the product to become a new material in the cycle.

SPECIALS

Dutch Awearness produces specials (workwear we especially produce based on requests from clients) based on the principles of the circular economy. This means that the work clothes are designed for re-use and we recycle these to new workwear. Specials can be any kind of garment, including aprons, shirts, overalls, work pants or work trousers, soft shell jackets, safety jackets, etc. All garments are made from the fully recyclable fabric Infinity. With this fabric, we save nearly 100% of waste, 95% of water and 63% of CO2. All of the products are tracked by CCMS in order to guarantee the reuse of the materials. Are you one of the early adopters who dare to show their true color?

Why we work circular

 

Rien Otto, the founder of Dutch Awearness, travelled to Africa in the early 90s for a human aid project. Here, he established some projects for farming and educational facilities. The land they had to use, was filled with textile waste from Europe. From that moment on, Rien Otto thought that it would never be possible to solve the problem in Africa, if we do not solve our Western problems such as dumping our textile waste in countries, such as Ethiopia and Tunisia. Working circular is also important because of shortages in raw materials, ecological disasters, and a growing world population. We believe that we need to treat our trash as treasures and start taking care of raw materials as resources. Hence, Dutch Awearness focuses on ecologically sound textile innovations, 100% recyclable materials and on controlling a circular value chain.

We believe that:
All products should be suitable for (re)use
All products should be made in fair trade and in partnerships
We should be responsible for our planet, people and the materials we use
20% is about the products, 80% about the process

According to a lifecycle analysis by EcoChain Technologies, this circular system saves us 20% in CO2 emissions and 50% in water usage, compared to cotton clothing.

 

Cliff

 

Cliff is our circular answer to the tremendous amounts of waste that the linear economy generates. With Cliff, Dutch Awearness recycles used conventional textiles to new circular products. Cliff is an innovative, fully recyclable composite from used workwear and used plastics, from which we create, among other products, circular furniture and shore protection.
