We are the agency for innovative waste management in the fashion industry.
We resell high quality second hand garments for re-commerce, upcycling or closed loop recycling.
We connect charitable textile collectors in Germany with fashion retailers.
We develop holistic strategies for a circular and equitable fashion industry.
With new sorting technologies, material innovations and circular design, a higher proportion of virgin fibers could be recovered for production.
Pre-consumer waste can be reduced by automation in production and individualized fit and design. Over-produced fabrics can be sold to designers and upcycling-brands.
The demand for second hand fashion is expected to double within the next five years. Marketplaces, peer-to-peer platforms and own brand resale stores are just a few of the growing business areas worth mentioning.
Repair services and remanufacturing models offer the opportunity to take responsibility for your products and reverse supply chains.
Olga is freelance strategy consultant and co-founder of the Creative Waste Collective. CRE-W.CO is an innovative textile recycling agency developing creative solutions to minimise the waste created by the fashion industry. Together with Julia Kline - her CRE-W.CO partner in crime, she wants to contribute to a circular and equitable fashion industry.
Following the statement ‘Waste is a design flaw’, Julia dedicates herself as a fashion designer and ‘Creative Waste Engineer’ to the topics of resale, recycling, upcycling and circular business models. As founders of CRE-W.CO, Julia and Olga want to change the way we deal with textile waste. By developing new, creative distribution channels and innovative applications for used textiles, they keep used clothing in circulation for as long as possible.
