Triwool, S.A. presented the proof-of-concept prototype infini at Stanford/Sugar Design EXPE, at Stanford University in Silicon Valley, USA.

Sugar is a global network that brings together multidiciplinary students from different universities and challenges them to solve real world product development challenges. During the past academic year, students from Porto Design Factory, Kyoto Design Lab and Kyoto Institute of Technology, followed a practice-based learning methodology in order to develop creative solutions to a real-world challenge posed by their Corporate Sponsor, Triwool.

The textile industry today is the second largest polluter of clean water after agriculture. 80% of the clothing we throw away ends up in landfills.

An estimated 50 million tons of clothing are thrown away every year. The global buzz around sustainability has grown rapidly over the last few years, and market research clearly shows it is only likely to increase. Consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products, and their demand is on the rise.

THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY WANTS TO BREAK THE GAPS IN THE ORGANIZATIONS USING THE FOLLOWING CIRCULAR STRATEGIES:

- USE WASTE AS A RESOURCE;

- PRIORITISE REGENERATIVE RESOURCES;

- RETHINK THE BUSINESS MODEL;

- PRESERVE AND EXTEND WHAT´S ALREADY MADE;

- COLLABORATE TO CREATE JOINT VALUE;

- DESIGN FOR THE FUTURE;

- FOCUS ON THE IMPACT AREAS, SUCH AS WATER,
   ENERGY, EMISSIONS.

our goal was set: develop a new technology of combined bio-based resources with leftovers from the textile industry, enabling the knit garment industry to produce fully circular and sustainable products, at competitive costs, ensuring that textile industrial waste and products at the end of their life cycle can become valuable resources to develop and produce new products.

Triwool’s contribution towards circular economy, INFINI, an eco-friendly yarn, is made from sustainable and biodegradable raw materials. 

INFINI is a bio-based polymer used in combination with other biodegradable fibres, all obtained from ethical and sustainable sources, such as cotton scraps, organic linen, hemp, organic cotton. 

Multiple natural blends will be available to create different fabrics, produced with intense eco-awareness without neglecting comfort, durability and efficiency.

This sustainability-oriented innovative solution is currently under development and will soon be available for tomorrow’s global fashion market.
