Amongst other big sustainable fashion icons such as Reformation, Timberlands, and eBay, our team received the Sustainable Textile Innovation accolade during the grand ceremony held at The Brewery in London.
The Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards have become a beacon of excellence in the fashion industry, celebrating the remarkable progress made towards reducing environmental impact and promoting fair working conditions across the supply chain.
With an independent panel of experts evaluating the nominees, these market-leading awards shed light on best practices, inspiring others to strive for positive change.
Guided by the UN-backed Sustainable Development Goals, which address global challenges like poverty, inequality, climate change, and environmental degradation, the Drapers Sustainability Awards have proven to be a fantastic opportunity to showcase that it’s not just good to be sustainable, it’s fashionable.
Our CIRCULOSE®, played a pivotal role in securing the Sustainable Textile Innovation award, with Drapers emphasizing the widespread adoption of CIRCULOSE® by global fashion brands, calling it the key to achieving textile-to-textile recycling within the fashion industry.
This comes after our attendance at We Don’t Have Time’s Stockholm Climate Week, where we shared how our circular fashion solution is not only being scaled up, but being leveraged by our peers in industry to make their practices greener.
Partnering with global fashion brands like H&M, Inditex, PVH, Levi's, and others, we’re aiming to expand our production capacity to an impressive “360,000 metric tonnes” annually by 2030, having already delivered about “1,500 metric tonnes of materials, or 3 million pairs of jeans worth of recycled materials.”
Our factory in Sundsvall, Sweden where we recycle and break down materials for use in a variety of textiles.

Our CEO, Patrik Lundström stated that "Drapers clearly supports the development of solutions the fashion industry so desperately needs.”
Events like these help spread our collaborative capabilities further. They elevate circular fashion from being perceived as a passing trend or a "nice to have" initiative to becoming the new norm.
It gives us a platform to raise visibility and awareness, inspiring the entire industry to prioritize sustainability and adopt innovative solutions that benefit both the planet and its people.
As we continue their mission to transform the fashion landscape, RenewCell remains committed to driving the circular fashion economy forward, where waste is minimized, resources are maximized, and the beauty of fashion is harmonized with environmental responsibility.
We’re looking forward to attending more of these events in the future, as well so we can continue to spread awareness on sustainable fashion solutions.
Just this year, we’ll be attending the ITMA 2023 Trade show in Milan, Italy, which focuses on textile producers and following along from that we’ll be attending The Sustainable Angle’s Future Fabric Expo in June which is “the largest dedicated showcase for sourcing certified, sustainably and responsibly-produced materials for fashion returns to Magazine London”.
