Textile-to-textile recycling pioneer Circ, headquartered in Danville, Virginia, has announced the launch of Circ-Ready – an exclusive community of global supply-chain partners who have demonstrated their ability to make solutions for fashion brands using its materials.

Inaugural partners include AGI Denim, Foshan Chicley Textile, Giotex, Marubeni Corporation, MAS Holdings, Pyratex, Selenis, Shinjintex, Soorty, Tainan Spinning and the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI).

Each Circ-Ready partner has undergone testing processes proving the ability to incorporate Circ products into existing operations and will work with pilot-stage products and receive ongoing support from Circ’s technical experts.

“Being able to announce Circ-Ready with such a robust and well-rounded group of partners is transformational for our next stage of growth,” says Peter Majeranowski, CEO of Circ. “It also speaks to the positive shift taking place within the fashion industry. As consumers demand better sustainable fashion options and brands and retailers make public commitments to source more recycled and next-gen materials, manufacturers who proactively choose to operationalise the use of our recycled material have an advantage over others who are slow to adopt recycled materials.”

“We are thrilled to lead the charge with Circ-Ready,” adds Henry Wong, VP of product development and marketing at AGI Denim. “Circ has the next generation of solutions addressing fashion’s biggest challenges, including microplastic pollution and circularity. By championing technologies like Circ, AGI Denim aims to connect raw materials to final products, maximising the potential for scalable innovation.”

Circ’s recycling technology is currently the only platform to successfully separate polycotton blended textile waste and recover both cellulosic and synthetic fibres regenerated into both lyocell and polyester from textile waste.
