About

RESORTECS® is a engineering agency that provides brands that advocate circular economy with: 1. Technology like hot-fusing stitching threads and heat-activated dismantable rivets which simplify the processes of disassembly, repair and recycling of textile products. 2. Circular transition roadmaps that enable informed sustainability decisions based on environmental and financial supply chain analysis. RESORTECS® - a registered brand name by REGENERATION BVBA- enables in this manner circular economy in fashion, furniture and automotive industry. Why Resortecs®? Today, garments and furniture are recycled into a low quality and low value textile mixtures. RESORTECS® has developed a stitching technique for easy disassembly of garments. It allows to separate the different materials, so that those can be used again in their pure form. In this way textile reuse processes are optimised and environmental impact can be reduced.

Zippers and buttons make garment recycling and reuse complicated as the removal of such details calls for manual assistance, making the process both costly and time consuming. Resortecs® solves this problem by supplying a thread, Smart Stitch, that simply dissolves at a high temperature and can be used on existing machines. This stitching thread works double wonders – it makes both repairing and recycling a breeze. When used for regular seams, the whole piece of clothing can easily be disassembled so that the fabric can be used over and over in new ways, cutting the need to produce fabric from scratch. Thanks to its effortless implementation Resortecs® technologies have the potential to become industry standards in the textile and fashion industry as a stepping stone towards circular economy. Stitch by stitch, Resortecs® brings new life to old fashion.
