Our collaboration for a circular economy in denim with Lenzing and Officina + 39
We are talking about circular fashion and traceability, an increasingly emerging demand that has led us to develop a collaborative project. For this reason this synergy of companies was born guided by the “Act Together”motto, it has given life to a work tool called THE CIRCLE BOOK. This book demonstrates how it’s possible to create designs and projects related to circular fashion.
Denim experts join forces to create a circular denim collection: Meidea for creativity, TENCEL for innovation in fiber and Officina + 39 for dyes and treatments.
Inside the book, each phase of the production of a garment is traced: starting from the creativity that is the basis of the design, passing through the choice of fabrics and accessories and closing the circle of work with its realization. In conclusion, The Circle Book is a lookbook designed to inspire and educate the next generation of designers in creating more responsible and low-impact clothing, following the circular economy input.

“The Circle Book was born from the thought that synergy and collaboration can be very powerful and effective,” commented Lucia Rosin, owner, Meidea. “It was created during the lockdown and with the aim to show a new circular economy perspective. Starting from fibers, selected materials, garment design and final treatment, we have discovered intelligent solutions in the use of fabrics, and have expanded their functionality, enriching garments with sustainable colors and finishes. The Circle Book wants to bring ahead the message that by collaborating and adopting a holistic vision, we are able to create better quality and work for our well-being”.EDUCATING DESIGNERS: THE CIRCLE BOOK Sportswear Interntional article by Maria Cristina Pavarini

We offer openness of knowledge in order to contribute towards a new sustainable model in fashion based on collaboration between companies, because we believe that Synergy is Energy.
