Every year 100 billion new items of clothing are produced while a truck full of clothing is burned, or buried in a landfill every second. Slowing fast fashion down a bit won't fix it. But when we take the waste material at the end, and make new products from it at the start, it changes everything. That's what we've done.
Our products and packaging are made from natural materials, not plastic. And every product we make is designed to be sent back to us when it is worn out.
We make new products from the material we recover, and the cycle itself is renewable. Our products can be returned and remade again and again and again.
A pure material makes remanufacturing possible, and means products that are softer, and not harmful to the environment.
Huge problems call for huge solutions. So we created a platform to share access to our circular supply chain online. Teemill means that anyone with an internet connection can use our systems, for free, and start their own brand.
Our technology automates the complex decision making required to run a real time supply chain for the tens of thousands of startups, brands and charities connected to our factory via the cloud. In our modern process, products are only made in real time - in the seconds after they are ordered - so there is no waste inventory.
Like Airbnb or Uber, modern technology is disrupting the fashion industry and for us, conscientious application of tech means we can make sustainable fashion a reality. The future of fashion is circular, and we are building it on the cloud today.

Throughout our supply chain renewable energy is used. In the UK we own a solar farm and power our manufacturing operations with renewables including our on-site solar farm. In India, the factory owns two wind farms and a 150kw solar farm.
Within our factory we use machine-to-machine communications technology which allows us to dynamically turn equipment on and off only when it is needed.
