Critical aspects in design for fiber-to-fiber recycling of textiles
As a part of Mistra Future Fashion Phase 2 critical aspects for increased fiber-to-fiber recycling of textiles were identified from stakeholder's perspectives. The aspects were identified through in-depth interviews with representatives from fashion companies, textile sorters and textile recyclers. The identified aspects were subsequently categorized, grouped and ranked. Differences in perspectives between different stakeholder groups were highlighted. The critical aspects' impacts on the stakeholder groups were outlined as were the possibilities of the stakeholder groups to influence the critical aspects. The identified aspect were clustered as to their main influence on the value chain regarding textile waste entering the recycling process, the recycling process itself or the recycled textile fibers leaving the recycling process.
