INTEGRATING CIRCULAR DESIGN
Circular fashion has always been at the centre of our approach and is something that we constantly strive towards. In 2020, we furthered these efforts with the Filippa K Studio. It began as an experimental retail space for repairing, remaking, and reselling pre-loved and past season garments that we have been taking back from customers either through our Collect programs or as claims.
We’ve now integrated it into our Stockholm headquarters, with a dedicated team that’s hands on with the garments – sorting, repairing, and remaking them so we can increase the longevity of our clothing, teach our community how to care for what they have, and gather valuable insight into our product development process with the data from the user phase of our garments. The Studio pieces are sold in select retail locations across Europe.

WOOL CUTTING SCRAPS
We have been sending the cutting scraps from the making of our wool suiting and outerwear garments to be recycled into new yarns and fabrics for some years now, and in 2020 we sent 1000kg of our wool cutting scraps to Manteco, a key partner mill of Filippa K’s in Prato, Italy. They’ll use this to produce a new fabric from our waste.
