An unprecedented circular approach

29 July 2021

With the support of develoPPP and BMZ, INTERFILIERE is developing a global project that, on the one hand, seeks to implement measures that introduce circular business processes and waste reduction for four Indonesian manufacturing plants, impacting a total of around 10 000 employees. On the other hand, the show and its partners wish to raise awareness among the entire Indonesian industry about sustainable textiles and the circular approach and educate the newest generation of students.

This Public/Private Partnership launched by INTERFILIÈRE SHANGHAI is being developed and financed hand-in-hand with the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

This comprehensive project that can be discovered at the show includes a circular collection of prototypes created by four Indonesian partners who have combined their skills, as well as a support and training program to reach the entire Indonesian industry.



At the heart of this project is the creation of a customized, circular collection of unique prototypes. This collection has brought together 4 Indonesian partners around a desire to rethink methods of production and add value to raw materials, thus creating pieces featuring a unique design.

All the suppliers selected for this project possess R&D departments for the design and/or manufacturing of pieces. They have specific expertise in the requirements and needs of international clients for collection development and have risen to the challenge of reinventing collection pattern making and prototyping alongside Vanessa Causse, while adapting their methods of production with greater awareness and sustainability.

Vanessa Causse, Trend Forecaster for INTERFILIERE, has supported these factories with her knowledge of Lingerie and Swim market trends, as well as international consumer expectations.

The four suppliers, selected by the Project Steering Committee, (SIPATATEX , KEWALRAM, WSK and BRA INDO) had to meet certain specifications: complying with international labor standards and having previous experience in moving toward more sustainable practices. Likewise, the health and safety of workers in the processing units as well as the management of chemical and waste products (identified as having the greatest impact on the environment) underwent verification.
