We believe the lifecycle of garments is inextricably linked to what happens to the textiles after use and the communities that help produce them. Our vision is for clothes, fabric, and fibres to cyclically re-enter the economy after use and never be discarded as waste. We convert waste textiles and clothes, including those manufactured by others, into new textile products which creates a supply loop, making fashion circular.
We also believe the human element of textile production should be at the heart of this supply loop, which is why we are partnered with sewing workshops in Glasgow, grass roots producers of wool in Spain and the Cotton for life program in Egypt. SERKLES aims to nurture diverse local communities and strengthen each link in the supply loop by developing a network of cottage industries to produce and then repurpose fabric and material, keeping textiles out of landfills.
