Resortecs wins Global Change Award

Vanessa Counaert and Cédric Vanhoeck with the award
On March the 20th, Resortecs has been awarded with its Smart Stitch Innovation. The Co-Founder from Resortecs, Cédric Vanhoeck was a participant at the FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017.

The Global Change Award is an innovation challenge initiated by the non-profit H&M Foundation. The Global Change Award is one of the world’s biggest challenges for early stage innovation and the first such initiative in the fashion industry. 

Cédric Vanhoeck says about the award: ‘’thanks to this award, we’ll get additional means to evolve our first working prototype to the next level. We are now just a stitch away from conscious fashion!’’

As 1 of the 5 winners of the prestigious Global Change Award, we are looking forward to the global accelerator program together with H&M Foundation, KTH Innovation, Accenture and Fjord.

The Resortecs shoe
The Resortecs stitching is engineered to enable labour-poor and cost efficient disassembly of products into reusable product components as apposed to a mix of shredded material. Resortecs is working on a fully dismantle-able and therefore recyclable shoe. The shoe will be named JOAN – the most circular shoe.
