Sustainability is woven into Schijvens' DNA

Circular entrepreneurship, that is entrepreneurship with and for each other

Circular corporate fashion

The textile industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. At Schijvens Corporate Fashion we strive for a circular economy in which products are 100% reusable. This is why we took the first step towards producing circular corporate fashion in 2016 and we are delighted that we have succeeded.

Our circular corporate fashion is made from 50% recycled textile and 50% recycled polyester. No new raw materials are used in this process. The use of new raw materials still has far too great an impact. You can reuse the same raw materials after use, which makes the article circular. This is how you create a closed circle.

Recycling Counter

We began manufacturing circular corporate fashion in 2017. This means that we collect the client’s used clothing and use it for the production of new circular corporate fashion. Check out our recycling counter to view the current state of our progress.

The circular process

A circular item is one that is made entirely from recycled materials. This means that NO new raw materials are used. The use of new raw materials still has far too great an impact. So what makes the item circular? It is that you can reuse the same raw materials after use within this circle. 

Return logistics

To be circular, it is of course a must to keep the chain closed.
​ Therefore, it is vital to collect the delivered products after use. Together with its partners PostNL and Dobbi, Schijvens Corporate Fashion organises the ‘return logistics’ with an innovative approach.

Aware

Aware™ is the simple method to reveal truly sustainable materials. The new generation expects producers to contribute to a sustainable society. Traceability is therefore a necessity, also for the manufacturer itself to know that what they are buying is in line with expectations.
