Repurposing industry textile waste for community benefit.
TeX helps to create sustainable communities by working with industrial textile waste, embracing the Circular Economy, Our model is regenerative by design and works in a way that benefits communities, the environment and businesses. TeX works to create change across the six E's which form the key pillars of TeX
Communities often have the knowledge they need. TeX brings people together from across the community to share their skills, knowledge and experience across generations. Through 'Makerspace's', Textile Workshops and Training we equip the next generation of talent with the skills, knowledge and passion for the sustainable fashion and textiles industries.
We set out to empower people to take lead in their own communities, We have built a model that works although to address the climate emergency there is not time to scale it working on our own. We want to empower others to replicate our model in their communities, building momentum behind the TeX movement. TeX also empowers people in the communities we operate, positively impacting on their lives, and raising aspirations as they connect with the six pillars of TeX.
