CIRCULAR FIBRES

WHAT
A range of textiles, made of 100 per cent recycled fibres, for use in the home or any other interior application, such as upholstered fabrics, wall hangings and blankets.

WHY
The textile industry is the second most polluting industry on the planet. Most end-of-life textiles are shredded and repurposed into materials of low value, such as carpet liners, insulation or movers’ blankets. Charlotte Cazals challenges our mindset by showing the potential of recycled fibres.

HOW
Charlotte designed a range of textiles that showcase the aesthetic qualities of the fibres, highlighted in random patterns sprinkled on the surface. They are finely quilted for more durability and embroidered with colourful touches.

QUOTE
More than half of fast fashion is dumped in less than a year. The textiles were produced with the help of ENKEV, a company that processes natural fibres.
