Prosperity Textile has partnered with UseDem in its denim recycling project.
Prosperity Textile will provide UseDem with leftover stock fabrics, out-of-season jeans samples and denim hangers for free. The company is also going to showcase UseDem bags at Intertextile Shanghai, October 11 to 13, 2017.
Both companies will co-host seminars and workshops in future to further promote sustainable development in the denim industry.
Founded in 1995, Prosperity Textile is an industry-leading denim fabric manufacturer with 80 million yards capacity, providing R&D, design and manufacturing services to global garment clients. With more than 20 offices and over 1200 employees around the world, Prosperity Textile provides global production capabilities backed by in-time local customer service.
UseDem is a project about upcycling old jeans into a new wearable product. It was founded by Xenia Sidorenka, a Russian designer who has been active within the denim industry for many years. Having witnessed the decline and decay of many a nice pair of jeans, she decided to not only start recycling these castaways, but to take things one step further and re-style them in a creatively and responsibly fashionable manner.
This cooperation is part of Prosperity’s continued efforts to build a green environment. The hope is that more companies and consumers do their bit to make denim more sustainable.
