FILOTEX Ltd. model of recycling ‘cutting
waste’ is replicable globally
Due to the shifting of consumer behavior towards fast
fashion, textile production and consumption has been
increased considerably and leading to a higher amount of
textile waste. Filotex Ltd is the pioneer in Bangladesh to
produce recycled products from ‘cutting waste’ of garments
Filotex Ltd., a sister concern of Mosharaf
Group, is playing a pioneering role in solving the solid
waste problem in Bangladesh textile and apparel industry.
The company is producing luxurious recycled products to be
used for home furnishing and upholstery since 2014 using
sophisticated recycling technology from valuable ‘cutting
waste’ of garments industry.
It is the first factory in Bangladesh working with ‘Circular
Fashion’ and 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) concept introduced
by the global brands. They think out of the cage to expel
the concept of solid waste and need of virgin raw materials.
Major global brands recently have committed to recycling
back used garments into new recycled products to reduce the
solid waste problem. Due to increasing consumer pressure for
sustainable products ‘Circular Fashion’ is getting popular
The global brands will be able to sell Filotex products
under the criteria of ‘Circular Fashion’ by using the
‘Cutting Waste’ of those brands as the raw materials of
those products. As most of the leading brands are producing
their garments in Bangladesh, they will be able to send the
‘Cutting Waste’ from their vendor factories to Filotex to
recycle them into fashionable sustainable products.
