One Textile Direction

The purpose of One Textile Direction is to establish a new state-of-the-art for circular design, procurement, use, and reuse of textiles for the private household, public, and private professional sectors.

The vision is to strengthen Denmark´s position as a textile and design nation and make Denmark among the front runners for a circular textile industry.

The need is to establish a Danish value chain for collection, sorting, and textiles-to-textiles recycling. This will require automatized textile sorting or textile-to-textile recycling solutions, which are currently not commercially available in Denmark.

The Danish textile industry has not experienced the same increase in sustainability and circularity as in other industries, and transformation to a circular economy holds the potential for unlocking a growth potential.

Impact of One Textile Direction
One Textile Direction is expected to generate 12 new jobs in the project consortium and develop technologies for export within recycling- and spinning technologies.


Participating partners: Aalborg University, Design School Kolding, Danish Technological Institute, Lifestyle & Design Cluster, Royal Danish Academy, Bestseller and Ganni A/S.
