Highlights and sustainability benefits

Wear2Go offers a circular alternative to the textile industry by processing end-of-life textile waste with integrated microwave technology

Recognition

Wear2 ™ Ecostitching is mostly applied to work and corporate clothing. This is due to the wide variety of textile and material types used for work clothing and the good manageability of return logistics.

About the Work

With the application of the patented Wear2 ™ Thread sewing thread, combined with innovative microwave technology, it is possible to fully disassemble clothing at its end-of-life. Different types of textile and accessories such as logos and tags, labels, zippers, buttons, visibility tape and other accessories are separated within 60 seconds without damage. After this the textile is ready for processing.

About the Innovator

Together with various partners, Wear2Go makes the textile industry circular and therefore reduces the amount of waste. By collecting textiles and, preferably “fibre-for-fibre”, convert them into new, high-quality products using innovative textile processing technologies. In this way, they maintain insight into the entire chain and, preferably completely, circular process.
