Sustainable textile design

Reduce your waste with our natural and washable daily life objects.

The resilient sponge is a range of natural, washable and compostable sponges for dishes and cleaning designed by Vanessa Colignon.

Designed to last and to reduce our environmental footprint, they are plastic-free and made of hemp (a vegetable fiber, naturally anti-bacterial).

Our sponges have been developed with our users to best meet your needs.

They are produced in Belgium, with a production system that generates less than 1% waste.

Our textile research for the development of the range of resilient sponges won the Wallonie-Bruxelles Design Mode award and the Audience Prize at the 2019 BeCraft Tremplin competition and received 7th place at the Green Product Award 2020 international competition.

About us

What drives us...

One of our commitments is to reduce pollution levels in natural environments by reinventing everyday objects that are plastic-free and using natural and ecological materials, produced without irrigation or pesticides.

A local production...

Concerned about the preservation of the environment, know-how and working conditions throughout the textile industry, we work locally with certified natural materials, resistant and produced in short circuit.

All our materials are at least OEKO-TEX® Standard-100 certified.

A fair price...

Pioneer in hemp and linen knitting, we wish to relocate a natural and virtuous textile industry in Belgium and Western Europe, to preserve its know-how and to make it sustainable by paying fair wages.

...fair wages

That’s why we charge a fair price. We do not put pressure on the production costs of our products.

When you choose our products, you will be paying employees who are not subsidized by the state.

The team

Vanessa Colignon, knitwear designer and convinced ecologist, dreams of a world more in harmony with the living.

She works closely with Romain Dendievel who has more than 30 years of experience in industrial knitting and manages with his wife the last knitting mill in Wallonia, Belgium. A family business with 6 employees, located near Tournai.

Around them gravitates a whole series of actors and stakeholders.

Textile research

Let's relocate an ecoresponsible textile industry!

Design for resilience is a young start-up dedicated to the preservation of the environment and to the relocation of a natural and ecoresponsible textile industry in Belgium.

Because we cannot resign ourselves to the massive extinction of species living on earth and to overconsumption, we act every day to create a new design model: zero waste, compostable and virtuous.

Today, we need your help to continue our research and reach our goals.
