ABN AMRO – SCHIJVEN’S FULLY CIRCULAR WORKWEAR
How do you make clothes without wasting a thread? Schijvens Corporate Fashion produces workwear from 50 percent recycled workwear and 50 percent recycled plastic. No new raw materials are added, so production is completely circular. Watch the short video and learn all about Schijvens’ circular business model.
SCHIJVENS’ CIRCULAR MODEL
The textile industry is one of the most polluting industries worldwide. Family business Schijvens contributes to a sustainable solution. Nearly 70 percent of the industrial clothing produced is now fully circular.
Schijvens designs and produces sustainable corporate clothing. You will find their clothing everywhere: in drugstores, catering businesses, supermarkets, hardware stores and many other companies. Schijvens sees the reuse of textiles as a necessity. The further development of new technologies in the field of circular business has resulted in the first 100 percent recycled corporate clothing.
100% RECYCLED COMPANY CLOTHING
Schijvens collects old company clothing from customers with its own return system. This is then ground into fibers and mixed with fibers from recycled PET material, fishing nets and sportswear. ‘new’, 100 percent recycled workwear is made from these recycled fibers. In this way no new raw materials are added.
For Schijvens, sustainable production also means that workers in foreign factories receive a decent wage and work under good conditions. That is why the company only has clothing produced in factories where social conditions are regularly checked.
ABN AMRO is the proud financier of Schijvens in its circular ambitions.
