Bas van der Geest, director
''I am convinced to offer a solution for the current waste of textiles''.
The idea for Denimtex arose very spontaneously when Bas van der Geest was driving in his car and heard through his radio that 70 percent of textiles go straight into the incinerator. There must be other sulotions for this!
His innovative spirit started to run at full speed and so he ended up at Frankenhuis Textielrecycling in Haaksbergen, where he took some fibers from recycled jeans and started experimenting with his children in their garage.
This is how the unique, sustainable wall decorations were created and we are now six years further!
