Silvercreek And Planq Joined Forces By Giving Old Jeans A Second Life
Two Dutch brands, denim brand Silvercreek and design studio Planq, joined forces by giving old pairs of jeans a second life. Their sustainable partnership is a new step forward in recycling denim. They worked on creating a unique denim design chair from old pairs of jeans.
Silvercreek has the vision to create a brand for men and women with a strong authentic character, combining history and creativity in a contemporary way, resulting in an original and innovative collection.
Create Something New, Something Timeless
The core idea of the collaboration is to create something new, something timeless with modern technology for a better tomorrow.
Menno Dings, Marketing Manager at Silvercreek about their collaboration;
”Planq and Silvercreek do not see old jeans as waste, but rather as a raw material for making renewed products. The common goal is to create more awareness among their target group and to reduce the impact on the environment. With just 1 chair made from recycled denim, up to 10 kilos of waste and 16.275 liters of water are saved. Planq and Silvercreek contribute to a better world for tomorrow.”
