Pomegranate rinds and Co. to create new fashionable clothing
The Grave-to-Cradle concept narrows down the circularity gaps in the food and the fashion industry by incorporating by-products of the food industry into circular strategies for garment production. Its Sustainable By-product Dyeing Principle is a sustainability standard on how to include various food by-products in natural textile dyeing. With the help of the principle locally sourced juice processing turmeric peels were successfully turned into dyes and pomegranate rinds into mordants. Through Dyeluxe, a start-up proposal, a sustainable luxury womenswear capsule collection was created.
