The Parently Group Hosts Quantifying Circularity Workshop for The Circular Textiles Foundation

Project relocation is officially underway at The Parently Group. The new headquarters in Bredbury have been a hive of activity with office staff being among the first to transition to their new home.

Located on the first floor of the new premises, Parently Campus is a standalone event and conference facility that will be marketed to local businesses looking to hire event or meeting space. The space welcomed its inaugural event with The Circular Textiles Foundation (CTF) who led a Quantifying Circularity workshop with the University of the Arts London and WRAP Textiles 2030, to delve deep into the technicalities of designing for recyclability as well as the practical and tangible outcomes of this approach.Circular Textiles Foundation Workshop

Invited brands from across the North West included David Luke, The Fraser Group, Pentland, Thrift+ and Alpkit, HD Textiles and We The Trendsetters. Tim Cross from the CTF shared insights around circularity with a case study presentation from Parently CEO Kathryn Shuttleworth and our Product Manager Ryan Cooke about the industry-first David Luke circular blazers and our journey towards circularity. In the afternoon, brands were invited to get hands on with their own products to identify where design for recycling would be most effective and share best practice from within their own organisations.

With the space set-up to receive visitors, the Parently Group held a business breakfast to say hi to its new neighbours on the Bredbury Industrial Estate with representatives from Stockport’s thriving business community joining to hear more about our values and purpose.

“The Circular Textiles Foundation’s Quantifying Circularity workshop was a brilliant first event in our new space, giving us a huge incentive to complete all those settling in jobs to make us visitor ready. It was great to meet our new neighbours at our ‘business-warming’ and we’re looking forward to hosting our retail customers after the busy back to school season.” Kathryn Shuttleworth, CEO The Parently Group
