Meet Jodi Everding - Vice President of Sustainability at Filippa K

We hade the opportunity to talk collaboration and sustainability with Jodi Everding. Jodi is the Vice President of Sustainabiltity at Filippa K.  

Who is Jodi Everding?

I am an American who has called Stockholm home for over 10 years. I have worked for more than 20 years in fabric research and development, and I started the fabric team at Filippa K nearly six years ago. In the past few years I have focused more on overall sustainability for the house and am currently Vice President of Sustainability.

What is a sustainable wardrobe for you?

A sustainable wardrobe is made up of pieces that you love and wear often. Using things as much as possible is key to consuming sustainably. This means having pieces that fit well and that are versatile in terms of silhouette and colour so you can mix and maximise their use. A sustainable wardrobe will have some occasion pieces that are worn less often, sure, but should not have a glut of garments that are never worn and just take up space.

When it comes to materials, why OnceMore®?

It is key for us to improve our resource efficiency. We like that OnceMore® is not only made from recycled post-consumer textiles but that it is from a Swedish innovator: Södra. It is also critical that OnceMore® is able to be used in the existing supply chain, and no additional processes are needed to displace virgin materials in this way. And finally, we are excited that OnceMore® has been able to be processed by Lenzing in a closed-loop process.

How has the collaboration between OnceMore® and Filippa K been so far?

It has been a fruitful and creative collaboration so far. We are developing a new textile using the OnceMore® pulp so that means we need a fibre producer (Lenzing) and a yarn spinner and fabric mill (Riopele) involved, as well. It has been important to bring these key stakeholders together. But we are also taking a longer term perspective with OnceMore® to collaborate further and find ways to send our textile scraps from our own garment making to them for recycling.

What do you think about the future of fashion?

The fashion industry needs to change radically. We must drastically reduce our overall production and implement circular thinking, processes, and business models. This does not mean that fashion can not be creative or inspiring – or fun! It is just to find that creativity and inspiration from using existing resources to their maximum potential.

How do you think the consumer will think in the future regarding sustainability and sustainable materials? And is it the retailers’ “job” to educate the consumer?

I have seen consumer awareness and knowledge regarding sustainable materials increase over the years – and I hope that consumers keep questioning where materials come from and how they are made. I think brands have a responsibility to communicate honestly about the materials they use and not over-simplify the sustainability credentials of these. Legislation is coming to enforce this and ensure that brands do not make claims that are misleading, but I think it’s important that consumers keep questioning brands and pushing for transparency, as well.
