BlueLoop: Circular Denim Concepts
Ron van de Wiel, founder of BlueLoop Originals, is on a mission to save jeans. Bring your old jeans to this Lunch Talk, and learn about how BlueLoop produces circular textiles and concepts to do just this!
Our journey started several years ago when we became aware of the fact how much textile waste was incinerated or was ending up in useless landfills. Only a small amount is actually being recycled and recovered – mostly into sound absorption material and carpet backing for cars. Such a shame! Why not create something beautiful from this “waste”, which helps to sustain our planet? We found our challenge in the most popular garment of all times: the blue jeans.
Together with a young and ambitious team of people who share the same passion, we create something new from worn-out or used material. The Blue LOOP collection is designed and produced with the aim of preserving the textile industry with every small step we take.
