Renewcell’s Circulose Supplier Network (CSN) is said to have made substantial growth from its inception just under a year ago with 47 initial members to today with 151 partners ranging from spinners and weavers to textile mills and garment manufacturers.

The company believes this growing widespread adoption of Circulose throughout the value chain means economies of scale can be achieved.

It added that fashion and home brands, regardless of size, now have access to fibres, yarns, and fabrics made from Circulose.

Renewcell chief commercial officer Tricia Carey said: “Our goal was to build up key geographical regions that could service the varied requirements of our current and future brand partners. Being able to offer vertical or location-specific end-to-end manufacturing is significant for our continuous development.”

Accelerating Circularity founder and president Karla Magruder added the addition of mills and producers to the CSN is a step towards building a circular system within the textile industry. She said: “Every step in the system needs to do its part. To scale textile-to-textile recycling the market needs systems in place and commercial. Renewcell’s Circulose Supplier Network is the first example of putting together all the pieces through commercial entities. 

“The ability to find and purchase yarns, knits and/or wovens at a variety of suppliers in a wide variety of geographic regions makes it possible for the next step, brands to do their part in building circular systems.”

Renewcell’s strategy revolves around replacing virgin manmade cellulosic fibres (MMCF) and enhancing the properties of mechanically recycled cotton with Circulose fibres. The expansion of mill partnerships, particularly in countries like Türkiye, where a huge cotton recycling industry exists, aligns with this objective.

“Sustainability finds life deep within our fabric, like the branches of a tree,” commented Özge Arpaz, sales and marketing manager of Palmiye, based in Türkiye. “We are open to every new project that has benefits for innovation, sustainability, and nature. Fibres made with circulose are the most important topic in the future world where resources are scarce.”

Srimal Wickremasinghe, managing director of Brushes & Needles, Sri Lanka, and Salil Dhillon, director of TexComs Worldwide, Indonesia, expressed their commitment to developing innovative and sustainable textile solutions in partnership with Renewcell’s Circulose technology, emphasising the increasing demand for eco-friendly products in today’s market.

Last month Renewcell revealed its plans to cut its workforce by 25%, which would create savings of SEK35m ($3.4m) per year once finalised.
