A key part of Marcello Bergamo’s drive towards a sustainable future is circularity… basically we want to do our part to make sure that what we produce gets reused time after time after time to reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfill and reduce the impact on the planet caused by mining of the raw materials.

Is there really a problem?
Yes, we believe it is a massive problem. Did you know that, globally, more than 100 million tonnes of textile waste is created each year. In Australia, this waste equates to 23kg of clothing into landfill for every man, woman and child and in the US the waste is more than 37 kg per person.
This is how your clothing is produced now…
