Accelerate the circular transformation of the production model is a key topic for the Italian fashion industry. Consortia, research and development centres, circular hubs are some of the solutions activated by luxury brands and trade associations for the reuse and recycling of processing waste: textile, leather, accessories, footwear, packaging. The main objectives are - starting from raw materials and design to the optimization of production and logistic – to maximize the use of recycled materials but also to work on durability, repairability and recyclability at the end of life. Innovation and tradition can work closely on new solutions renewing the Italian’s System of Excellence, creating value? How the consumers will be involved/impacted?
