Recycling Atelier: The first Makers Faktory for mechanical textile recycling


Mainly, downcycling to low quality products (e.g. cleaning rags) takes place.


High material diversity of used textiles leads to challenges in recycling.


Fast fashion is a driver for large quantities of lower quality textiles. 

Our vision of the textile loop

High-quality recycling instead of landfilling and energetic
utilization in our recycling atelier.


Area concept

The Atelier enables the path of textile secondary raw materials back into high-quality products


  • Development of new products and processes for textile secondary raw materials within the framework of a Makers Factory

  • Development of concepts, for the complete recycling of used textiles back to new products in the best possible quality by: 
    • Integrated and high quality recycling (Upcycling)
    • cycle-oriented product design (Design 4 Recycling)


  • Industrial realization of recycling concepts and business models


  • Learning Factory as a training and further education facility



Our partner model

Bundled competence leads to new recycling products faster through innovative technologies along the entire process chain!
