Mitä ovat Refibra™ ja Nokian Neulomon Remium-neulos?
Nokian Neulomon toiminta saatiin kaksi vuotta sitten pyörimään teidän tukenne ansiosta! Nokian Neulomon tavoitteena on alusta alkaen ollut tuotteiden ohella tehdä myös uusia materiaali-innovaatioita ja muuttaa vaateteollisuutta. Kesällä 2017 Nokian Neulomo kutsuttiin tuotekehitystyöhön kehittämään high-end -neulosta Lenzingin leikkuujätepuuvillaan ja puukuituihin pohjautuvasta Refibra™-kuidusta. Premium-neuloksen kehitykseen Nokian Neulomo on ideaali kumppani, sillä tuotannolla on pitkäaikainen kokemus sekä erikoiskehrättyjenlankojen käytöstä että lyocell-kuitujen värjäyksestä ja painamisesta. Syksyn 2017 aikana tehtaalla on […]
Etuoikeus vai unelma? Miksi Weecos haluaa tukea seksuaalioikeuksia?
Weecos on perustettu edistämään solidaarisempaa ja tasa-arvoisempaa yhteiskuntaa. Se onnistuu yhteistyöllä ja ennakkoluulottomalla asenteella. Mitä kovempaa vastatuuli puhaltaa, sitä kovempaa haluamme laittaa vastaan. *** Tällä hetkellä konservatiiviset liikkeet polkevat maailmalla ihmisoikeuksia, ja erityisesti seksuaalioikeudet ovat maalitauluna. On kestämätöntä, että nykypäivänäkin on yhteiskuntia, joissa ihmiset eivät saa päättää omasta kehostaan, joutuvat pelkäämään ja peittelemään rakkauttaan tai […]

Pre-consumer Waste, Zero Waste, Pre-Sale – Lost In Textile Waste Terms?
Pre-consumer waste. Post-consumer waste. Zero waste. Pre-sale. Mass-upcycling. Heard them but never really understood them? These terms are unfamiliar to quite many or often confused together. All of these terms back up the circular economy, which is seen, as stated in the previous Lost in terms post, as the future’s business model. Managing textile waste, […]
Lost in Terms?
Up-cycling. Recycling. Down-cycling. A lot of new terms have popped up lately, and they are often new, confused together or misused. As Weecos also has a quite wide range of products using these methods in their production a simple vocabulary of these essential words is needed. *** CIRCULAR ECONOMY The big, trendy term – […]
Clothing Brands Changing the Fashion More Sustainable
Big brands are using new technologies to make fashion more sustainable. But we feel that smaller design brands are doing significant work too, as it’s said, “big things have small beginnings”. Especially when people working together. So meet TAUKO Design, Reet Aus and Paula Malleus, brands who’s work have influence on the environmental issues as well. *** […]
