The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA) today announced its collaboration with Gap Inc. to foster sustainable development of the industry. Our shared mission is to develop eco-friendly production processes and technology solutions that enable the industry to move from a linear model to a circular model across the life-cycle of textiles. Two initial research areas have been identified: separation of spandex from used garments and denim decolourisation for recycling.
