By recycling waste garments into PANECO, a fiberboard that can be used to make furniture, display fixtures and interiors for stores, commercial facilities, offices, factories and events, we contribute to the reduction of fashion loss and the realization of recycling-oriented production, while at the same time supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and CSR activities of our client companies.
Rebirth to Sustainable Abundance
Globally we produce 13 million tons of textile waste each year. In Japan alone, there are approximately 1.2 million tons of surplus and unsold clothes inventory annually. By turning wasted clothing waiting to be incinerated into fiberboard, PANECO® revives the original purpose of fashion - to enrich people's lives - in a sustainable way.
Aiming for Zero Waste Circular Production
PANECO® is made from waste clothing, manufacturing scraps and other materials collected from apparel and other companies. Not only textiles, but also various fibres, such as leather, can be recycled into hard, workable, sustainable boards.
PANECO® can be collected and reprocessed again as fibre board after used for displays, events and furniture when it is no longer needed.
Please contact us using the order form to provide us with your waste clothing.
At the core of PANECO®'s values and activities is the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We aim to achieve a sustainable future by developing products based on the "Responsibility to Create and Use", addressing climate change and protecting the abundance of land by reducing waste, and providing gender equality and job satisfaction to all people who work with us.
WORKSTUDIO outsources part of the PANECO® manufacturing process to Persons with Disabilities Welfare Center. WORKSTUDIO donate part of the proceeds from PANECO® sales every month to Persons with Disabilities Welfare Center.
