As a confectioner, specialized in design and production of professional clothing for the personnel of the healthcare sector, cleaning, catering and industry, we control the entire chain of our profession: from design to production up to and including the delivery of the clothing. The result? Quality.
Why is the product or service circular?
DUTRA's design is 'Made in Belgium'. The development and testing of our clothing is done in our workshop in Wavre. For DUTRA, “circular” means “sustainable”. All links in our business chain are driven by the same finality: postpone the end-of-life of our products for as long as is possible and realistic. The links in a clothing company are: design and development, production, stock management, employment and logistics. Making sustainable work wear means that we work professionally and economically with the right raw materials.
Which circular strategies are applied?
Reduce total amount of materials: CADesign guarantees precision and helps us to use raw materials efficiently. The personalized ERP ensures correct stock management of raw materials and finished products.
Reduce amount of virgin inputs: DUTRA promotes the Tencel fiber made from wood pulp. Tencel is the ecological replacement for cotton. After all, growing cotton requires a lot of water, fertilizers and pesticides.
Extend the useful life: DUTRA has more than 60 years of experience in making professional clothing. Experience, professional confection, sustainable raw materials and timeless design guarantee a long lifespan.
Maximise the reusability or recyclability of materials: Cutting waste is collected by textile recyclers.
What are the benefits for procurers?
DUTRA guides buyers through the labyrinth of sustainable raw materials from which professional clothing can be made. We closely monitor the development in the field of raw materials.
