Cooloo’s exhibition showcased the local waste it uses in its textile solutions, allowing visitors to see and touch products made from leather, cork, jeans and other materials.

Furniture can be refurbished with new materials rather than throwing it away. To continue this action, Cooloo recently launched a furniture rental program, which allows customers to take advantage of furniture and then return it when their situation changes.
