The Sustainability Act of the Year 2022

We won the Sustainability Act of the Year 2022 competition with an open public vote! Our act of responsibility was: FabPatch™ - RepairRevolution.

There is much more in the field of Circular economy of textiles and fashion than recycling and reusing materials. From an environmental point of view, the most important thing is to enable products to be used for their original purpose for as long as possible. By making repairing textiles really easy, attractive and affordable, we can significantly increase the lifespan of textile products and reduce their negative climate effects", says Jetta Liukkonen from FabPatch Ltd.

Fashion Circular Economy Award

The comprehensive well-being event at the I love me fair last year awarded fashion's circular economy operators for the first time.

In the Life-cycle extender category, an operator who has extended the life-cycle of textiles was sought. FabPatch was chosen as the winner of the category.

FabPatchis an exceptionally good idea. FabPatch makes the circular economy easy for everyone. It is affordable, readily available; can be purchased at a local market and does not require special skills to use. FabPatch gives everyone the opportunity to extend the life of a garment without requiring a new way of thinking or operating. FabPatchis a completely new territorial takeover", said the jury about their reasons.
