Our team

Our team consists of 3 core members, Ephora's co-founders, Evi-Mara, Roos and Camilla. Martin, Ephora's business development advisor and Iris, Ephora's start-up and textile expert.

We invest heavily in collaborative relationships and networks, to realise the circular economy together. We have a supporting team of experts and mentors to help us realise our dream to create a circular textile. We built a consortium with the University of Saxion, currently conducting research on our project, and two industry partners, a jute recycler and Zwartz, a weaving company. We have a collaborative relationship with fashion designer Sylvia Calvo BCN, who is working with circular and jute materials. Furthermore, we build on our network of jute-bag users, knowledge institutes, textile and jute experts, fellow CE enthusiasts and innovators. We make it a priority to always look out for collaborations with people and parties that are as excited about the circular economy and overthrowing the status-quo as we are. We truly believe that we can only make the transition to a circular world if we work together in an equal, inclusive and transparent way.
