Enschede Textielstad, the first sustainable weaving mill in Europe
Enschede Textielstad was started in 2014 by Annemieke. The reason was the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh. The entire textile industry seemed to agree; something had to change. In that social discussion, the focus seemed to be mainly on making garments in large sewing workshops. But what about deeper in the chain, in the manufacture of the raw materials and the knitting and weaving of the fabrics? What if that part of the chain could also be improved by bringing it closer to home? Enschede Textielstad originated from this ideology. The first sustainable weaving mill in Europe, located in the former textile city of Enschede.
Enschede Textielstad develops and produces fashion and interior fabrics from recycled materials and locally sourced raw materials. They are the first (and for the time being only) weaving mill in Europe that focuses entirely on the production of sustainable fabrics.
