Our Circular Mark
Our circular mark shows 3 people (community) sharing clothes and wearing them forward (collaborative consumption) among each other in a closed loop (circular fashion).
The 3 CIRCLES represent...
📍 Our core values (3Cs) – circular fashion, collaborative consumption, community.
📍 3 circular economy principles – design out waste and pollution, keep materials and products in use, and regenerate natural systems.
📍 3 key stakeholders who need to act together for a systematic change – producers, consumers, and the government.
📍 Our guiding principle, Quadruple Bottom Line Framework (4Ps) – people, planet, and profit with the whole being purpose.
The 3 STYLES OF LINES—dotted line (D), broken line (B), and line (C)—represent...
📍 A circular fashion system - eliminating and restoring textile wastes (D), creating products with their end of use in mind (B), and reinventing how we use and reuse textiles for longer lifespans and utilization (C).
📍 The different stages textiles undergo in the supply and value chains:
🔖 units of textiles: fibers (D), yarns (B), and fabrics (C)
🔖 processes : take raw materials, go back as raw materials, or textile wastes (D), make clothes and other textiles, refashion, or recycle (B), and consumption or reconsumption (C).
📍 Stages in awareness and behavioral change: no to low-level knowledge, action, and practice (D), average-level knowledge, action, and practice (B), and high-level knowledge, action, and practice (C).
Oh! Have you noticed the smiley at the bottom part? 🙂 A happy face for happy communities, happy stakeholders, and a happy planet!
