Abstract [en]

The amount of textile waste has been increasing steadily in the Western world during the last decades. Its negative impact on the environment makes it important to investigate the possibility to increase the utilization of waste materials. The purpose of this paper is to study possibilities and structural barriers to utilize waste materials in the Swedish furniture and clothing industries. The study is based on semi-structured interviews with project managers, business developers, designers, and company representatives in the initiative Studio Re: design. The initiative aims to develop new techniques for making use of textile waste. Our study shows that the possibility for making use of waste materials is greater in the furniture industry than in the clothing industry. This is explained by more local production and flexible production in the furniture industry and also greater possibilities to utilize existing sales channels and interactive effects in the design process.
