The fashion industry project that reutilizes waste food products

FOOD TEXTILE is a sustainable project that extracts ingredients from vegetable waste disposed of by food companies,
uses these ingredients to make dye, and provides fabrics and products colored using these dyes.

FOOD TEXTILE is a sustainable project that uses dyes made from vegetable and food waste that would otherwise be disposed of.
Irregular-shaped ingredients, scraps from cutting vegetables, used coffee grounds, and other food products scheduled for disposal are purchased from farms and food production companies. Ingredients in these vegetables are then extracted and used to create dyes.

As a bridge between the food and apparel industries, the project has focused on the colors of foods, used unique techniques for converting them into dyes, and used food waste provided by a wide range of food companies to create original products. It has collaborated with various fashion brands inside Japan to sell fabrics and develop products. Through this, the apparel industry has worked to tackle the problem of food loss. The project has worked with over 15 Japanese food companies and farms, including Salad Club, Inc., part of the Kewpie Group, to create a sustainable system that links these industries.

Colors created from safe food products

  • ■ FOOD TEXTILE thread is colored with dye made from safe food products.
  • ■ This natural dye accounts for over 90% of the dye used. The gentle colors are proof of the minimal use of chemical dyes.
  • ■ The pigments in FOOD TEXTILE products are made from vegetables and food products that otherwise would have been thrown away.
  • ■ The program proposes a new way to solve the problem of food loss.
  • ■ All FOOD TEXTILE fabrics have passed colorfastness tests. They keep their colors and can be used for years to come.

SUSTAINABLE SYSTEM

The FOOD TEXTILE project is a joint effort between Toyoshima & Co., Ltd., food companies that provide the ingredients for dyes, and companies that use those fabric colored with these dyes to make products.
By going beyond the bounds of CSR activities and creating a system in which each company engages in the program as a business activity, it seeks to create a long-term, sustainable system.
