Worn Again Technologies’ Founder Cyndi Rhoades has convened a Circular Advisory Panel (CAP) for guidance and influence as the company progresses towards commercialisation in the circular textile economy.

The CAP will help design, develop and support the adoption of our Circular Licensing Model, giving an authoritative and global perspective on how to successfully embed our future business in circularity.

The panel is in place to help deliver tangible success to our future plant operator customers, preparing them to access their markets and giving them a competitive advantage as a result of collective insights.

We are delighted to have brought together such a high-profile and cross-disciplinary group relevant to the development of a circular business, comprising experts from key areas within textiles circularity and our wider network: circular and systems design, manufacture, fashion and textiles, digitisation, transparency, policy, economics, waste disposal, recycling innovation and engagement.

These trailblazers will help oversee our progress, push for further opportunities or identify any threats from within their respective industries, and bring their unique and system-specific insight to our growing knowledge hub.

Like any technology company, we face significant challenges when scaling up. As a circular company, we face an even steeper mountain to climb as we cannot only depend on the success of our own technology development and business model trajectory; we must also support and connect with all of the other moving elements in our circular system to succeed.

This outward-looking approach will build solid cross-system foundations and relationships for Worn Again Technologies, to anticipate potential commercial hurdles, and to minimise future risk through knowledge-sharing as we grow and develop our business.
