The State of Art by Loop.a life collection consists of 100 percent sustainable material and is made from collected clothing from the Netherlands.

At the end of last year, State of Art joined the Green Deals Circular Textile initiative, committing itself to a circular approach to textile production for the next four years.
Hans Kuijf, commercial director and co-founder of State of Art, in the press release: “Quality and honesty have always been paramount at State of Art. I am proud that we are taking an important step towards a sustainable future and, as part of Green Deals Circular Textile, are working towards the use of at least 10 percent locally collected ‘post consumer’ textile in our productions. ”
The chain of the State of Art by Loop.a life collection is closed and circular, according to the press release. The clothing collected in the Netherlands is sorted by color and material using a sorting machine. Then it is cleaned by hand by removing the zippers, buttons and tags.

The yarn is used to make items.

The men’s label strives to increase the number of items that meet the world standard every year. Later this year, State of Art will give consumers the opportunity to follow the production process via tex.tracer – the platform for transparency in the clothing industry. Loop.a life has been committed to reducing textile waste for years. When people are cleaning up their closets en masse, the mountain of post-consumer textiles only increases. In 2020, the Dutch company and brand took the next step in its mission to turn all important local residual flows of textile into a high-quality yarn with the launch of Cotton2cotton.
