Camira takes majority stake in textile recycling business, iinouiio

Back to News & Events

We are delighted to announce that we have taken a majority stake in iinouiio, a groundbreaking UK textile recycling company. Marking the start of an exciting new initiative to develop innovative new textile products from preloved wool garments and fabrics, the investment is a continuation of our long tradition in environmental stewardship and signals our commitment to accelerating our work in textile circularity.

An acronym for “it is never over until it is over”, iinouiio has secured major investment funding to install state-of-the-art wool textile reprocessing machinery, the first of its kind in the UK for more than 20 years. Established in 2019 by Dr John Parkinson, who retains part ownership and will head up the new venture, iinouiio builds on John's longstanding family history in textile recycling to create a new, pioneering approach to achieving a circular textile process.
