For all professional textile lovers!

Professor José Teunissen, Dean School of Design and Technology London College of Fashion (UAL) and Senior Research Fellow ArtEZ, was curator of the exhibition State of Fashion 2018: searching for the new luxury. During her talk she’ll share findings from this search, and will speak about how technology and society relate to fashion now and in the future.


Recycling and upcycling of used cotton textile fibers for a brand new life. Two very different methods but both innovative and contributing to a more sustainable textile world.


Speakers: Dr. Jens Oelerich senior researcher and lecturer at Saxion University of Applied Sciences and Marc Meijer founder and owner of DenimX where technology meets design.

Dr. Jens Oelerich

Dr. Jens Oelerich is a senior researcher and lecturer in the research group Smart Functional Materials at Saxion University of Applied Sciences. His research focuses on the realization of a closed loop material cycle for the textile industry and the environmental impact analysis of textile products and process. Oelerich is a co-founder of SaXcell B.V., a spin-off company of Saxion that works on the up-scaling and market introduction of the patented SaXcell(R)-technology.

Cotton is the most abundant natural fiber in the textiles industry and has been used since the beginning of the industrialization as major raw material for garment production. Despite our high industrial standards, cotton recycling was restricted to the mechanical down-cycling of the fibers to products of lower value for a long time. Considering the enormous burden cotton cultivation has on the environment, the creation of a closed material cycle is expected to decrease this impact significantly. In fact, cotton waste can also be seen as valuable source of cellulose for the production of virgin cellulose fibers. In this contribution, the SaXcell chemical recycling technology invented at the research group Smart Functional Materials of Saxion Univeristy of Applied Sciences will be presented. This technology enables the recycling of cotton textile waste into high value fibers and products for the textile industry.

Marc Meijers

Founder and owner of DenimX. After more than 5 years of research and development, Marc invented a smart upcycle process to create new products from discarded textile waste. DenimX is able to combine the fibers of obsolete jeans, uniforms, sports apparel or company clothing with a bio-based plastic in order to give these textiles a brand new life and reduce our ecologic footprint. Marc will share his thoughts and ideas on the road to a circular world. 

Discarded textiles represent little value for the fashion industry: upgrading these once-wasteful textiles into functional products is a process we call upcycling. The industrial process is as simple as it is ingenious. The DenimX recipe combines recycled jeans fibers with bio-based plastics. With this composite material, three-dimensional products can be created. Trendy, solid and sophisticated. DenimX is quirky, a bit rebellious, pure and certainly extraordinary.

DenimX is versatile in finish and composition. This makes it possible for DenimX to meet the aesthetic and technical requirements requirements of clients in the lifestyle market. The composition of the fibre reinforced material DenimX can be optimized to be as stiff, strong, light, thick or thin as required by the application. The individual recycled fibres are visible and its visual qualities are preserved.

 DenimX products not only inspire with their intelligent design, meticulous craftsmanship, and application in a wide variety of industries, they also contribute to a more sustainable environment
