The circular brief

French underwear
Ile-de-France (Paris)
THE CIRCULAR BRIEF is a recycled cotton boxer made from end-of-life underwear. A local innovation project that follows 3 years of R&D with 1083. Of the 2.6 billion textiles put on the French market each year, less than 1% are recycled. Existing recycling projects do not concern mixed fibers such as cotton-elastane which compose the vast majority of underwear put on the market. This is THE innovation of this project, we managed to recycle mixed fibers in order to make a new yarn.

No new production of underwear, only recycling

Local production, from collection to manufacture

A project that combines 3 committed actors of the French textile industry: 1083, Lemahieu and Le Slip Français
