The objectives of this study are to understand the circular supply chain barriers for textile companies to implement the circular economy. Main contributions of the study were to propose a specific framework that reveals circular supply chain barriers in transition to circular economy with holistic view by encompassing all stakeholders, to reveal causal relationships among the circular supply chain barriers within textile industry. Causal relationships between the proposed circular supply chain barriers were identified by Fuzzy-Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) method. The barriers are classified under cause and effect groups and related implications are proposed. The findings of this study are lack of collecting, sorting and recycling, reluctance for acceptance of CE model, and problems related to uniformity and standardisation are revealed as the most important barriers, respectively. Moreover, lack of technical knowledge is the most influencing factor, whereas, challenges in product design is the most influenced factor.
