Come with us as we discover the most creative projects around Circular Fashion in Berlin. From circular fibres and fabrics, to upcycling fashion, to zero waste design - this is sustainable fashion on the next level.
Collecting, sorting, reusing, redesigning, reselling: the life of old clothes and textiles is much longer than we think when we throw them or give them away. But second-hand clothes is not the only kind of waste generated by the fast fashion industry. In fact, taking a step back into the manufacturing of textiles and clothes, we know that between 20% and 40% of raw materials and textiles are wasted in every single industrial process - from the fiber creation to the sewing of clothes.
What happens to these valuable materials?
Which strategies can the industry implement in order to avoid the production of waste?
What can fashion designer do in order to save important resources?
What can we do as consumers?
This tour is giving you answers to all these questions, while meeting a range of circular fashion pioneers in Berlin & getting an insight into their fascinating techniques.
Together we will explore a world of possibilities to reduce textile waste and answer to all the questions above. We will visit textile sorting-out centers, upcycling designers in their ateliers, special second-hand concept stores and circular start-ups. You will get the chance to talk directly to the people behind these incredible projects, ask your own questions and get a glimpse into the future of sustainable fashion.
If you choose our tour + dinner package, we will give you more “food for thought” at the end of our route, while enjoying a delicious zero waste dinner!
