True Colors

High end fashion made out of textile waste? In this documentary film ReBlend shows it’s possible. Check out the teaser here

Over 200 million of kilo’s textile waste are produced in the Netherlands each year. Most of these textiles consist of combined materials and are not being upcycled. Now just imagine the amount of textile waste worldwide…

I was not aware of these numbers until I met Anita de Wit, founder of ReBlend. I got interested in her persistence to look for solutions when every one else said combined materials can’t be upcycled. She went looking for partners and together they started their own experiment.

For a year I closely portrayed how they work towards creating a yarn and designing a first high end fashion collection together with fashion designer Melanie Brown. They launched it on Kickstarter.com to raise money for the collection and to create a first community around it. Will they manage to produce a first collection together with a crowd? Does this collection open up a way to a new fashion industry?

By portraying this start-up I want to raise awareness on the lifecycle of cloting and textiles and show the challenges that are similar for many other start-ups who work towards a circular economy.
