The circular economy is when we truly remove disposal from our vocabulary, not only recycling materials a couple of times, but keeping them in play forever.

Here's a product that looks normal but has a circular secret

Our slouchy beanie is made using two materials which would otherwise go to waste.

The cashmere is cut from a blue knitted jumper and the sheepskin pompom is a by-product of the British food industry.

The result is a totally unique beanie, which helps reduce waste and puts less pressure on nature's resources.

But let's go back a step further

If the circular economy is when we no longer throw anything away, we need to do more than just use by-products to make our beanies. 

We need to design out textile waste from the start.

So, at Tallis we decided to plan ahead when we designed our jumpers.

This blue jumper has the lifetime guarantee called Forever Tallis. If you ever damage it, you can return it and we will make it into a hat for you like the one above, for free!

And we DIDN'T stop there

the extra mile

Our team doesn't just make great quality products, we show you how to use them sustainably for life. And if one day they become damaged, we want you to come to us and find a way to reuse them.

  • We have bought back garments from our customers so they can be sold as Tallis Refurb in our Swiss store
  • We mend items for customers or give them tips to do it at home
  • We've restyled unworn hand-me-down coats into scarves or cushions 
  • We've emailed a customer in an emergency to help them undo a laundry shrinkage disaster (yes, it is possible with water and patience!) 
  • We have a yarn supplier who shreds unusable cashmere and wool to create yarns with which to knit new accessories

AND JUST LIKE THAT

we created a circular supply chain

At Tallis, we think about our products in sets and create a system around them to close the loop. Our products are made in high-quality materials, often by hand, and they are designed to last a lifetime, are worth mending, and even remain valuable after they're finished with.

Now that's worth shouting about.

Saving Waste

Our approach reduces waste, because we see things which are usually thrown away as potentially valuable inputs for something new.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

Living like this is planet positive. Life on Earth relies on a cycle. If we follow this pattern of nature in everything we do too, the planet will be in balance.

We're all part of the story

Start a love affair with fish leather

Show me all fish leather accessories

Our fish leather is zero waste: it's a by-product of the fishing industry, using raw material that would otherwise go to waste. It is also eco-friendly because the production process makes use of renewable hydro and geothermal energy. Two aspects that support the circular use of natural resources.

Own your next tee shirt for life 

Show me all t-shirts

Just because you're not wearing your t-shirt any more isn't a reason to say goodbye. Make it into a reusable shopping bag and use it at the supermarket. Repurposing clothing which can no longer be worn avoids waste and supports the circular economy.

We need to stop leaving our mark and follow the example so beautifully given by nature the world over. It is vitally important that we make the right choices in what we produce and what we purchase. Everything should not only go further and last longer, but it must leave less damage.
