Vitrine : Resortecs

About

Every Second a garbage truck of textiles is wasted globally. Only 1% will
be recycled. This is because recycling, repair and remanufacturing
practices are unfortunately still complicated and expensive as the removal
of different materials, zippers and buttons calls for manual assistance,
making the process both costly and time consuming.

Resortecs® solves this problem by supplying a system that includes heatdismountable
stitching threads, rivets that allow for automated
disassembly and cost-effective recycling.

Resortecs’ sewing thread for example can be used on existing stitching
machines, can be washed and if needed ironed, but unlike regular sewing
thread it dissolves at 200 degrees Celsius. When used for seams, the whole
textile product can easily be disassembled, without damaging the
materials, so that the fabric can be used over and over in new ways,
cutting the need to produce fabric from scratch.
