The Circular Fashion Framework includes a number of elements. Apart from the original definition of circular fashion and the 16 key circular fashion principles, the Framework also contains eight main categories of “circular fashion” products and services. These eight categories of circularity-oriented fashion products and services are:
A. Products that are made, redesigned or reused for a more circular life
- New products that are designed for long-lasting style and quality
- New products that are made of recyclable and/or recycled materials
- New products that are made of biodegradable and compostable materials
- Used products that are redesigned or upcycled
- Used products that are resold as secondhand or vintage
B. Services that are provided to promote a more circular product life
- Products that can be ordered “on-demand”, in the form of made-to-order, made-to-measure, bespoke or similar service
- Products that can be rented or leased (instead of being purchased)
- Products that can be repaired by an in-store or external tailor
Notably, the same product can match several of the eight categories simultaneously. Thus, it may be designed for long-lasting style and quality (A1) and manufactured using 100 % biodegradable (A3) and recyclable (A2) materials; moreover, it may be leased from the store (B2) and repaired by the store’s inhouse tailor (B3).
