  • The Circular Textile Days will take place on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th of September 2021: an excellent opportunity to meet new partners in the sustainable textile business and to discover and discuss innovative circular textile solutions.

    During the event, current questions and issues about circular textiles will be highlighted. The participating companies will present the latest innovations in circular textiles and the entire textile chain will be represented: from raw materials, yarns, fabrics and garments, to dismantling and recycling. Knowledge institutions will provide information and extensive explanations.

    The Board contributes to the program together with partners in the circular textile chain. read here more about what the Board is doing in the field of circular textiles.


    There will be both virtual and physical presentations, an information plaza and expo with company booths. There will also be special attention for the Dutch Technical Agreement NTA 8195. At the Circular Textile Days, the goal, content and consequences can be discussed. Also the next step, the development of a certification scheme, will be highlighted.

    The event is for the whole textile chain, from recycled yarn to eco-designed garments, reuse of materials and high-tech recycling. Workwear and functional clothing will be strongly represented.

    Background information

    A circular textile industry causes less environmental impact and creates extra employment. Within the Green Deals Circular Textiles, various parties are committed to the ambition to work towards a circular approach to textiles over the next three years. This means developing circular collections, longer use, repair and regional reprocessing into new yarns. This means investing in qualitative and quantitative improvement of the processing of discarded textiles, building up knowledge and dissemination of circular principles, raising awareness among end users and using circular textile purchasing as a strategy.
