Designing towards circularity
Teijin Frontier isn’t settling on simply making the most sustainable products. The company is now setting its sights on product lifecycle management, and integrating a more circular approach from the beginning of design.
“Our real homework will be at the end of use,” Shigemura reflects. The brand has explored closed-loop recycling technologies and will continue to pursue materials that are easiest to recycle and repurpose.
Teijin Frontier is on a mission to innovate across its supply chain, weaving sustainability into its corporate structure, operations, and product design. The apparel industry has a long way to go, and taking this kind of holistic approach will help the industry scale progress at the pace our planet demands.
