Kuyichi Sympany


By Sympany

Sympany, a textile recycling social enterprise from The Netherlands, set up this new initiative to achieve its sustainable and socially just targets: By Sympany. By Sympany aims to collaborate with (sustainable) fashion brands to, by way of recycling, create products of which a part of the revenue will be used to finance its social impact projects in Africa and India.

One of their projects is the Mobile Training Project in Malawi, a collaboration between Sympany and local partner organisation DAPP. This mobile school, which operates from a giant truck, offers four-month tailoring courses, each time welcoming 30 young women from rural areas in Malawi. They are taught basic dressmaking and sewing techniques, but also accounting and writing, laying the foundation for their self-sufficiency. The best remedy against inequality and poverty. Power by sewing machines!

For the BY SYMPANY BY KUYICHI collab, Kuyichi realised the first edition of 1600 jeans, which for 20% consists of recovered fibres from discarded denim collected by Sympany. 10% of the revenue from these jeans will go to Sympany’s Mobile Training Project in Malawi. 

This sustainable denim is the result of the combined effort of Kuyichi and their production partners. Together with Recover, specialised in upcycled cotton yarn, Tejidos Royo, a certified denim mill, and SARP, a sustainable denim manufacturer based in Turkey. All this expertise, innovation, motivation and impact lead to a journey to make a circular fashion industry possible step-by-step.

In By Sympany By Kuyichi jeans 20% of the fibres come from old discarded denim. For the first production of these jeans around 1150 old jeans are shredded to be re-used. This saves around 300L of water per jeans compared to one made from conventional denim fabric. The virgin cotton that is used is GOTS certified organic cotton and the fabric is GRS and OEKO-TEX 100 certified. In the dye and washing process, big amounts of water and energy are saved and no hazardous chemicals are used. We’ve also taken great care in the trims and details of the jeans. By Sympany By Kuyichi jeans are sewn together with 100% post-consumer recycled PET polyester threads, made from used waterbottles. It is finished with a jacron – washable paper – patch on the back. Also, they’re truly – PETA approved – vegan! No animal content is used in any step of the way.
