PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate)
APPAREL AND ACCESSORY RECYCLING
Our system for a ‘circular brand economy’, encompasses traceable sourcing and production processes, where we up recycle materials like tencel cotton and polyester garments and turn it into new yarns and fabrics for creditable new lines.
We work with you and our manufacturing partners to design a unique model of up-cycling textiles and garments taken form deposits or collections and put into our recycling. The garments are cut, shredded and spun into valuable new recover yarns and then into new fabrics. These are then made into long-lasting quality garments, for virtually every design and application in your range.
Like all garments, they will eventually wear-out, at which point they can be returned back to the up-cycled system, thus completing the ‘circular brand economy’
