What does it mean in practice to design clothes that at their end-of-life could be circulated into new fibres, yarns, fabrics and textile products? This chapter adresses the question through a descriptive case study of a sustainable design consultancy circular.fashion which has developed a novel approach to circularity. Multiple challenges and solutions regarding circularity within the company
practice are introduced and reflected upon with respect to different phases within the circular textile value chain and previous literature. The chapter contributes to a deeper understanding of required changes in clothing design practices when aiming to accelerate the transition from a linear production-consumption system to a circular alternative.
