Founded by commercial textiles specialist and former Business Development Manager of Lenzing and Birla Cellulose, Oya Barlas Bingul, OBB Consultancy partners with ground-breaking textiles start-ups and connects them to the right manufacturers, brands and retailers to help integrate circular and innovative materials across the entire value chain and wider fashion industry.
Passionate about making regenerative fiber and textile solutions the new normal in the global fashion industry, we incorporate the ambitious UN Sustainable Development Goals across all our services and daily decision-making to help guide businesses towards a better, more habitable future.
With more than two decades worth of combined knowledge and experience, our team can efficiently guide you through the transition towards more circular manufacturing design processes from fibre to product – and help you establish and meet targets that resonate with your company values.
Our work begins with start-ups; we invest and support them throughout the development of their branding, commercial and sales strategies to accelerate the integration of innovative materials into the global fashion industry.
We collaborate with manufacturers, retailers, brands and designers, and can create bespoke brand marketing and communication strategies for those who don't want to produce clothes at the expense of the planet.
If you are a manufacturer keen to shift towards sustainable production, we can support you by creating tailored and profitable strategies to integrate and scale up new fibres and materials in your production cycle.
For designers and brands determined to meet the needs of their increasingly conscious customers, we can provide a made-to-measure service for commercialising responsible materials into new product ranges and collections.
