Planq sustainable business partner of Nvest

Planq is a Dutch design company that is focused on the design and production of sustainable furniture based on textile waste named PlanqTextile.

Together we started to implement their concept in Colombia in 2018. The goal is to produce Planq furniture based on local textile waste. Colombia has a large textile industry and there are currently no sustainable initiatives to transform this waste in new products. As a result, most of the waste gets disposed and ends up in landfills, which is a shame. We want to promote the upcycling of textile residue by offering high quality and cool products to show that it is possible to re-use waste.

As a result, we:

  • Locally source the waste
  • Transform the waste in base material
  • Produce wood and metal-based products in combination with PlanqTextile
  • Have an extensive network of distributors and stores in Bogota and Medellin
  • Work together with local designers and brands to create new products
  • Executed projects for brands such as Chevignon

The local network of producers, distributors and designers consists of the following parties, among others.
