THINK Global, Act Local
Trtex.org is an intermediary organization and creative space that produces projects related to sustainable and circular fashion, organizes trainings, and brings together manufacturers, professionals and young generations in the textile industry for the purpose of creating awareness and positive impact.
WE CARE ABOUT OUR PLANET
Our world is facing many problems. We are aware that our time is limited. While promoting the local, working in the field of sustainability, researching about the waste, the problem we want to help the most is the climate crisis. We are taking action, if you want to take action with us, you can join our community and take an active role.
Our impact is parallel to our way of thinking, not only locally, but globally. Every subject that we started to think about and examine has been designed in such a way that we can touch the textile industry from different languages and different parts of the world. It is aimed that our works should be inclusive enough to lead to collaborations within textile industry and with other sectors.
Our Mission and Vision
As Trtex.org, we aim to cooperate and produce with different disciplines, companies, communities, and individuals in the sector while transparently conducting our research. Thus, we undertake the task of being an umbrella institution. We aim to create a open space for creative production and solutions by bringing together those who produce information or products about textiles.
We want to bring together those who are already producing (whether a product or craft or knowledge) with those who want to learn, by establishing the right connections. But WHY? We believe that knowledge will increase as it is shared.
Of course, we believe in making the world a better place and leaving a healthy world to future generations. But we don’t believe we can do this alone. We BELIEVE in the change that cooperation and solidarity can bring.
While producing, researching, or even wondering, we need both a space and a teacher. We know the need for support and trust in creating this space. But HOW? By empathising and leveraging our experience.
We believe in the importance of addressing circularity in all its aspects. One of our purposes is to show different frameworks of circularity.
We approach the sustainability of fashion with a holistic perspective, our biggest goal is to contribute to the production of fashion in ethical and fair conditions and to enable change.
Our Project Categories
We plan our projects to be established within Trtex.org under 2 areas. In this way, we combine different perspectives, past, and future. We support the locals, help protect the ecosystem.
Sustainable Development Goals
We produce projects covering the Sustainable Development Goals, which is a universal call to action that includes the goals aimed to be achieved by the member states of the United Nations by the end of 2030.
In our community, there are companies that have been in the industry for years, communities and municipalities working for the local benefit, manufacturers specialized in their fields, artisans who combine their creativity with their talents, and individuals who are open to learning and curious about how everything develops. By joining our community, you can meet us, take part in our projects or learn with the community.
