They all have their own specific expertise to guide them and accelerate their sustainable ambitions. Clean & Unique is the ideal partner for fashion and textile start-ups and scale-ups on their journey towards a clean based and unique brand DNA. No matter if it’s the production process that needs to be reviewed, or a particular step in the process or if there’s a need for more exposure, our experts are ready to be of assistance. As a member you are part of the movement towards the new economy, in which positive financial results go hand in hand with the care for people and planet. Together with designers, companies, experts and other entrepreneurs, we aim to accelerate our impact; nationally and internationally. Make your sustainable ambitions known to us and we will help you realise them. We will tell the world about them through our experts and channels. You can make use of our matchmaking at our Marketplace, get in touch with suppliers and manufacturers and help shape the Sustainable Fashion & Textile Agenda.
