Museum of the Future partners with Ethilution

We are excited to announce our latest project: designing a collection of all-black sustainable fashion accessories made from leather waste from the automotive industry and post-consumer Nespresso capsules for the Museum of the Future in Dubai. Our collection aims to raise awareness about post-consumer waste and the circular economy.

Circular Design

Our team of experienced designers and project managers have carefully selected sustainable materials such as leather waste from the automotive industry, which is a abundant and underused waste stream, and repurposed post-consumer Nespresso capsules, to create a unique collection of all-black fashion accessories that are both stylish and sustainable. We have also incorporated closed-loop systems and designed for disassembly to ensure that our products can be easily recycled or repurposed.

In addition to designing sustainable fashion accessories, we also offer education and communication services to ensure that our clients are educated on circular economy principles and sustainable practices, and we work with them to build a circular brand and create a circular culture internally.

Nespresso capsules recycling programe to redesign into new products.

All products have been made from post-consumer Nespresso capsules as a raw material to create handmade accessories such as handbags, wallets, and laptop sleeves. The capsules are collected through a recycling program, where customers can send back used capsules for recycling.

Through a partnership with bio-bean, a UK-based company that specializes in recycling coffee waste, Ethilution is able to recycle the coffee removed from inside the Nespresso capsules into coffee logs and natural food flavorings. This process is not only environmentally friendly but it also allows for the creation of new products from the waste materials.

By creating handmade accessories from post consumer Nespresso capsules, Ethilution is not only reducing waste but also promoting a circular economy, and by partnering with bio-bean, they are also creating new products from the waste materials. This not only is a great way to reduce waste but also to promote a circular economy, by keeping materials in use for as long as possible.
