How We Put Circularity Into Practice

How We Put Circularity Into Practice

Circularity in practice incorporates considered design, responsible manufacturing and product stewardship over the use, repair and end-of-life of every garment.

At The Glade, we design with the end in mind by considering the questions below:

  • Can we make this a long-term, sustaining product? Is the design as classic, long-lasting and functional as possible?
  • Are we able to use recycled or renewable materials? How are we going to re-use these materials, how easy is it to disassemble and repurpose?
  • Who is making our garment? Are they being paid a fair and living wage? Can we even tell…is this a transparent and open supply chain?
  • What does the end-of-life look like? If the product can no longer be used wholly, re-used for its parts or recycled back into raw materials, can it return to nature?

Here at The Glade,

  • Every piece is sewn by our exceptional makers here in Sydney, Australia in support of artisanal quality and local, ethical supply chains, in turn keeping our environmental footprint small.
  • We produce in limited quantities to reduce waste and maintain our quality craftsmanship.
  • We only use 100% single-fibre fabrics. These are easier to care for, recycle and regenerate.
  • We ensure our hardware (buttons, zippers) and trims are easily removable and can be recovered for reuse.
