Evrnu has been announced as a 2016 Semi-Finalist in the Fuller Challenge, a prestigious annual competition named “Socially-Responsible Design’s Highest Award”.
Christo and I have proven we can do a lot with a little. This month completes our 17th month since we received our initial investment and we just issued our first joint press release with Levi’s Strauss & Co announcing our collaboration on a denim project and our proof of concept garment. Just this week we also won the Grand Prize for the Fabric of Change award announced during Copenhagen Fashion Week!
Textile technology startup Evrnu™, SPC and global jeanswear leader Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co.) today announced they have created the world’s first jean made from regenerated post-consumer cotton waste. This is a major industry advancement in sustainability and closed-loop technology.
We are so excited to be part of the 10 Finalists of Fabric of Change! Ashoka’s shortlisting team selected top entrants from more than 300 entries from 55 countries based on the challenge’s criteria of innovation, impact, and sustainability.

Business is all about curve balls, whether it’s giving a speech or pitching a proposal or dipping your toe into the sustainability pool and taking a long hard look at who you've become and who you want to be. All experiences are good experiences; the trick is to never stop having them… (READ MORE)
The Circular Economy will shape our immediate consumption rate by redefining the perception of waste. Say that three times and then believe it to be true.
