International Journal of Sustainable Fashion and Textiles publishes paper from Trace project


We are excited to introduce this paper from the project ‘Blockchain, IoT and Resale’ 

The paper was first presented at the PLATE conference in Helsinki June 2023 and has now been published in a special issue of the esteemed International Journal of Sustainable Fashion and Textiles,  edited by Kirsi Niinimaki Headed by the title: “Does Resale Extend the Use Phase of Garments? Exploring Longevity in the Fashion Resale Market”, PhD. Mette Dalgaard Nielsen and Associate Professor, PhD. Else Skjold from the Royal Danish Academy have asked the question whether resale extends the lifetime of garments or not.
Through a ‘follow-the-garment’ netnographic approach that locates in-and-out flow of reseller wardrobes and resale platforms, the study analyses selected resale mechanisms that hinder or promote longer lifetimes of garments. The conclusion shows that resale does not in itself extend garment lifetime, but that it has huge potentials for doing so given the right circumstances.
Several Danish fashion brands and resale platforms are involved in the study, amongst these Baum und Pferdgarten and Ganni A/S.
