Theme: Revolutionary collaboration to change the apparel industry
Circular solutions can’t be built alone. New types of collaborations and out of the box thinking is needed to change the traditional, non-sustainable consumption patterns. The fashion industry emits more carbon than international flights and maritime shipping combined.
Key note case: Bergans and Spinnova
Spinnova, a sustainable fibre company, and the sustainable outdoor brand Bergans launched the Collection of Tomorrow, a fully circular, subscription-based takeback and reuse concept that’s revolutionary in the apparel industry. The collection’s first prototype product is a highly sustainable design backpack. Lotta Kopra from Spinnova and Yngvill Ofstad from Bergans share the learnings so far from the collaboration in creating a fully circular fashion concept.
