About my work

I'm the founder of Retalhar, a brazilian social business that works making feasible the responsible management of textile waste, creating solutions that adds social value to the supply chain. Our main market niche is the reverse logistics of corporate garments, which means that we take old uniforms and transform it into something useful, like blankets for the automobile industry, popular blankets for homeless or new products. All the workforce employed in the process is inclusive, either in the cooperative responsible for the sorting, reverse characterization of the uniform manufacturing, or in the cooperatives of seamstresses responsible for the development and sewing of the new products, made with the uniforms (and therefore with the identity visual) of our clients, usually large companies that use uniforms based in Brazil.
