Value chains

As one of the world’s top ten exporters of used textiles, the Netherlands is a key player in the complex networks of worn clothing around the world. In 2022, 248,000 tonnes of used textiles were exported from the Netherlands, totalling more than €193 million. 

This report—Destinations of Dutch Used Textiles: Uses and Risks after Export— explores what happens to textiles collected in the Netherlands in their various destination countries and highlights the impacts and risks associated with these exports as well as how they are addressed. 

This study aims at empowering the government and value chain stakeholders to better contribute to the creation of a circular and fair value chain for post-consumer textiles.
