The company is backing a model that combines training and practice to address the new needs and profiles required for the digitalization and transformation of the textile industry.

The textile industry is one of the most contaminating on the planet and “our objective is to end this evil”, points out Carmen Silla, Marketing Manager at Jeanologia. The new generations are driving the change and will be the leaders in finding the environmental solutions of the future, that’s why “it is vital to support their training so that they can transfer that commitment and that new business culture”.

“At Jeanologia we know how to do that, we’ve spent many years demonstrating that a new way of producing is possible; completely technological, efficient, ethical and sustainable. That’s why we are continuously increasing our commitment to the development of a more sustainable future,” Silla highlights.

10th Edition: The School

 With the demand for new job profiles and the need for training in these new professions, Jeanologia started up The School  in 2013, a training grant that gives designers the opportunity to acquire all of the skills and knowledge necessary in design for textile laser, textile production techniques, sustainable design and denim product development.

At the same time, the company provides a complete service to its clients since the selected students have four months of advanced training and after that, they have the possibility to be hired by these clients and work at their production centers around the five continents.

More than 50 young people from the five continents have already participated in this training program which is about to start its 10th edition and has an employability of 80%.
