Roll-ends, cut panels, bigger pieces of fabrics, cutting scraps, returned fabrics and so on. Up to 47% of resources get spilled from production without enough statistics available from production.
Cut your production spill by 20% with remanufacturing. Achieve saving of 3% of virgin fabrics by replacing them with already available fabrics.
Maximise the potential of leftovers from fashion production, profitably and efficiently!RR software is enabling virtual mapping and traceability of garment production spill. It's a one-point software solution for retail brands, factories & recycling partners to capture the enormous win-win-win business opportunity from the circular economy concept.
Step 1: start measuring factory input-output volumes!
The quantity of leftover materials is highly underestimated because there is lack of tracking and measurement systems in place for regular trustworthy data. The potential business opportunity of using the leftovers as part of the circular supply chains remains unknown for both the factories as well as their key buyers. Setting up regular KPI-s and tracking the volumes is the first step to start planning circularity.
Step 2: set up remanufacturing and improve recycling
~20% of the factory spill could still be remanufactured - used in the next purchase orders for the same buyers without a negative impact on cost or efficiency of production or any heavy investment. Even more, remanufacturing and recycling can reduce the use of virgin fabrics and save enormous amount of water and energy in factories. We've discovered - it's fully an issue of having an incentive to do so as part of the original supply chains. Our approach provides both the win-win incentive as well as the solution.
Step 3: what can't be used internally, can be sold over online marketplace instantly
Most of the factories already sell their leftovers forward to local traders - all in one bulk, mixing up colours, fibres and piece sizes of the spill. This makes reuse and recycling rather inefficient and only better part of the resource finds a new life, rest gets dumped without reaching the right market. Our solution brings along efficiency, transparency and higher margins from connecting the right people in the supply chains with right information at the right time.
