Every year, 92 million tons of textile waste is produced globally. The vast majority of this waste either ends up being incinerated or landfilled. Yearly, in Denmark alone, according to a study, a single resident discards an average of 2.4 ± 0.9 kilograms of clothing and 1.1 ± 0.5 kilograms of household textiles every year, all bundled with regular household waste. Kvadrat Really represents a pioneer and visionary solution to this existential crisis.
In 2022, we successfully processed over 300 tons of textile waste, upcycling our customers´ discarded textiles into functional, versatile, and aesthetic tabletops. Astonishingly, just 1 square meter of Kvadrat Really material breathes new life into more than 14.3 kilograms of textile waste from both pre-and post-consumer sources.
