TRAKS is not a spelling mistake

TRAKS is a partnership between Textile Recycling Australia (TRA) and Karie Soehardi (KS) from Circular Design Thinking to educate manufacturers, companies and consumers on the importance to removing furnishing textiles and rugs from landfill.

 

By recycling unwanted textiles and creating recycled yarn, textiles become an asset in the circular economy and the shift of a take, make, dispose culture to reuse, recycle, upcycle takes precedent.
