It all started with baby clothes. When Rosario Hevia got pregnant with her second child, she started to notice just how many children’s garments are wasted. The gendered onesies she bought for her firstborn, a daughter, were in perfect condition, but they wouldn’t suit her new baby boy. She started to focus on textile waste in her home country of Chile. Hevia’s engineering background means she is constantly adding numbers, finding solutions, and improving systems.

Hevia started researching alternatives for the clothes that couldn’t be upcycled or resold, which amounted to about 20% of the donations she received at the time. “We went to the Ministry for the Environment, the municipalities, the big department stores that claimed to recycle sustainably. Everyone simply replied, ‘We donate it.” And she insisted: “But I’m talking about the clothes in poor condition, and they said, ‘Oh, no, they’re thrown away.’” She couldn’t find any viable solution in Chile at the time.
