Three leading companies in the textiles industry, Recover™- leading material sciences company, Happy Punt- a design and manufacturing end-to-end solution provider, and Hansae- apparel production company, have formed a multi-year collaboration to deliver end-to-end solutions for the design, development, and manufacture of sustainably conscious garments for the fashion industry.
The cooperation enables retailers and companies to include sustainable Recover™ recycled cotton fiber into their goods, therefore assisting in the resolution of one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
The collaboration uses innovative technology to offer a variety of services to brands and retailers at every stage of the supply chain, including 3D design, patterns, tech packs, samples, and production. The cooperation utilizes the group’s worldwide presence, with operations in Seoul, Barcelona, and New York, to offer a unique speed-to-market solution for the manufacture of entirely sustainable garments.
Furthermore, strong customer proximity allows for in-market technical design services such as developing, reviewing, and approving all specifications to ensure proper fit and brand enhancement. The collaboration also offers an end-to-end solution that blends the benefits of nearshore and offshore production across the world.
With dedicated cutting-edge design and development facilities, samples can be produced in-house from concept to final sample in a short amount of time. In particular, as part of a collaborative sustainability drive, the collaboration promotes R&D drawings to be replaced by 3D designs to decrease the sampling process’s environmental effect.
In each of their respective sectors, the three top businesses have total expertise of almost 130 years. The commitment of each company to delivering the best technology to the product and market creates a disruptive approach to the traditional garment design and manufacturing process. The alliance is delighted to be collaborating with prominent global brands to bring sustainable collections to market by Spring 2022, with additional collections on the way.
To meet current market demand, Recover™ plans to grow production to 200000 metric tonnes of recovered cotton fiber per year by 2025. This recycled cotton volume would save almost 3 trillion liters of water each year, which is comparable to the yearly drinking water consumption of three billion people and will allow 500000 acres of land to be diverted away from cotton farming and put to other purposes.
The collaborative alliance between Recover™, Happy Punt, and Hansae provides brands and retailers with a simple plug-and-play solution for achieving their sustainability goals while also ensuring a high-quality product for consumers.
