Cluster: Circular Products 3

The municipality of Deventer, together with many organisations in Deventer, will start a Circular Craft Centre for Textiles. Many household textiles are being collected and sorted out in the sorting centre owned by Reshare in Deventer. The good quality materials are being sold in the second hand market and the bad quality goes to the recycling companies. A large amount has a quality in between, so not good enough to sell in the second hand market and to good to be recycled. The aim of the Craft Centre is to make new products out of these textile materials. The assignment for the group is to support the development of this centre with recommendations, based on research, concerning the design of the products, the organisation of the process and the cooperation between the actors, the distribution and the sales of the products made.
