JOINTECHNIX – SMART STITCHING WITH BUILT-IN DISASSEMBLY

JOINTECHNIX – SMART STITCHING WITH BUILT-IN DISASSEMBLY

The Jointechnix stitching technique, with built-in disassembly, pre-enables circular economic practices in Fashion and furniture. The technique makes circular economic practices financially and technically feasible, by reducing the manual labour during the disassembly process and by enabling recycling on product component level as opposed to shredded material. Products mixing different materials like fabric, leather and plastics can finally be re-used, on industrial scale, in stead of being landfilled or incinerated.

Long Description

The Jointechnix stitching technique, with smart thread technology for built-in disassembly,  pre-enables circular economic practices in:
1. Fashion accessories
2. Furniture and mattresses
3. Car interiors

It is designed for companies with an integrated supply chain and enterprises using raw materials with high intrinsic value and/or high eco cost (e.g. leather and technical materials).

 

The Jointechnix value:

1. UNBURDEN product developers and designers from Corporate Social Responsible practices and eco-design.

2. TACKLE CUSTOMER DEMAND for responsibility and transparency, by being part of the sustainable and technology avant garde.

3. MAKING CIRCULAR ECONOMY FEASIBLE:
a. FINANCIALLY: by reducing the manual interference during the disassembly and recycling process.
b. TECHNICALLY: by enabling recycling and reuse on product component level in stead of shredded material.

4. MAKING CIRCULAR ECONOMY VISIBLE and enabling companies to explain (the value added of) the circular economy practices, by i.e. showing the disassembly process.

 

The Jointechnix mission:

Making circular economy a reality in the making industry, by enabling circular economic practices technically and financially on the one hand, and by making it socially popular and desirable.

 

n.b.: As the described swewing technique is in development and is envisioned to be commercialised, more details about i.e. the functionality of the technique can’t unfortunately be shared.
