Make it last x Circulose® Jacket

by Make it last on 25 March, 2021

Seven years into making Make it last, we’ve decided to launch our first product. It will be the first partnership of, hopefully, a few, where we team up with innovators in the fashion industry to test the limits of what’s possible in terms of circularity and local production.

This first product—a jacket—is handmade in Laxå, Sweden with fabric made with Circulose®.

Circulose® is a new natural material, a ‘circular cellulose’, from Renewcell, made by gently recovering cotton from worn-out clothes.

Fugeetex is a factory in Laxå, Sweden, offering nearshore production and small-scale orders, made by artisans with experience from around the world.

The jacket is made with deadstock fabric composed of 20% Circulose®, 60% organic cotton, 20% viscose from FSC wood pulp. Buttons 100% Recycled Social Plastic, Union Knopf.

Sign up to be the first to know when the very limited edition of the slightly customizable jacket will drop. It’s pretty soon…
