Our Solution

The Good Felt, a coming venture of Enviu under the Reweave program, is dedicated to addressing this problem by focusing specifically on the post-consumer textile waste that has no utility or value and providing it with a new lease on life. The Good Felt is working on reducing the burden on landfills significantly and increasing the longevity of textiles and circularity.  

At The Good Felt, we understand the gap and are bracing for the opportunity; we are aiming to develop quality products while collaborating with brands and partners, saving textile waste from ending up in landfills.

Our Impact

Every felt sheet from The Good Felt is a testament to our dedication to sustainability. It is not just about reducing waste; it is about eliminating it. We are currently in the market validation phase, focusing on expanding our reach and customer base.

 

The project addresses everyone involved in our felt-making process, from waste pickers collecting discarded clothes to workers sorting and fabricating the felt products.
