Servitization is a growing phenomenon to improve resource efficiency, leading to positive effects for the environmental and for society. It stands for the innovation of an organization’s capabilities and processes to create mutual value through a shift from selling products to selling product service systems. In this context, product-service systems are one of the most effective instruments to attain a resource-efficient circular economy. It combines design principles, technology considerations, and marketing strategies into a business model for extending the useful life of a garment. In particular, the economic implications and feasibility will be assessed for such a business model, taking into account crucial factors, such as logistics flow, quality factors, key performance indicators (societal, environmental, economic), life-cycle discussions and the required competence-building.
This report demonstrates an economic feasibility assessment, by examining two examples of servitization for circularity in the apparel and fashion industry, and outlining potential business models, along with prospects for future research. Core elements for decision-making and the economic implications and feasibility of extending the useful life of a garment through servitization are identified here.

A circular economy tackles the root causes of global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution, while creating opportunities for better growth. It is underpinned by three principles, all led by design: eliminate waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.
For fashion, it means ensuring that products (apparel, footwear, accessories) are used more, are made to be made again, and are made from safe and recycled or renewable inputs. A circular economy for fashion creates better products and services for customers, contributes to a resilient and thriving fashion industry, and regenerates the environment. In delivering the vision, the rights and equity of all people involved in the fashion industry are prioritised.
The report provides common definitions and explanations to underpin the vision, aiming to support transparency and consistency. The section builds on ISO and BSI definitions where applicable.

This report was commissioned by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. It addresses the concept of a circular economy in the textile industry with a particular focus on fibres in the garment and fashion sector. The contents are based on a comprehensive literature analysis, an expert workshop held during this 2018’s Cradle to Cradle (C2C) international congress as well as more than 20 interviews with professionals from the textile sector.
The report outlines the conceptual implications for a circular textile sector, presents the status quo of implementing a circular textile industry at the EU level, assesses innovative recycling technologies and discusses challenges and potential solutions for the transformation to a circular textile sector

The clothing and textile industry offers style and functionality. It sells dreams and provides a stage for self-expression. But the industry produces an environmental impact which is far from sustainable. Looking at the environmental challenges in this sector, WWF is asking: How will fashion brands fulfil customers’ dreams in the future while contributing to the well-being of society and the environment at large? Doing ‘business as usual’ will not be an option for the industry nor for the planet in the long run. To stay financially successful, companies will find it necessary to reduce their environmental impact and to respect the ecological boundaries of our planet. WWF’s vision is that the clothing and textile industry contributes to a world in which humans live in harmony with nature. There is a long way to go to make this vision come true, but WWF believes it to be possible, if the industry takes bold action and leadership for transformation. This report shows how frontrunners are improving the environmental performance of their value chain, and how they are adopting innovative business models which could reduce the sector’s impact on the environment drastically. These innovations, in combination with disruptive global mega-trends such as digitalization, indicate that the clothing and textile industry is at the brink of radical transformation. It is time to use these transformative dynamics to create a radically different and more sustainable clothing and textile industry.

Technologized textiles and sustainable fabrics are among the most innovative designed today, and together they are driving the rest of the industry dramatically forward. Many designers are now integrating hi-tech fabrics, such as protective and impact-resistant textiles, or cellulose fabrics with groundbreaking results. Embracing new processes such as biomimicry, they bridge the gap between art, design, technology and sustainability.
This book showcases new work from over 35 of today’s most forward-thinking textile designers, featuring surface designs, highly-structured textures and striking silhouettes. Each will be presented through inspirational text and striking visual spreads to include design sketches, work-in-progress photographs and digital drawings alongside images of cutting-edge furniture, interior textiles and fashion.
This book shows how the development of fabrics today is immersed in technology, sustainability and innovation. It is an essential resource for anyone interested in contemporary textile design.
