Circularity

This T-Shirt is part of our pilot project, which intends to test a circular business model.

The my-trace by Remei technology makes the T-Shirt fully traceable from seed to finished garment and beyond: The origins and material composition of our Circular Tee are fully transparent. You can simply scan the QR code printed on the care label to find out more.

The T-Shirt carries an NFC-button, sewn into the hem. This circularity.ID® shows origin and material composition of the Slow Label T-Shirt, explaining how it can be recycled or sent back to us. When you no longer wear your Circular Tee, we take it back, and offer it as a ‘pre-owned Circular Tee' on our website, giving it a second life.
