Fashion brands that use recycled materials
Reduce, reuse and recycle. We have heard and read these 3 R’s and now it’s making its way into fashion! Here are clothing brands that use recycled materials that you need to know about!
The journey of a tonlé product begins in an unlikely place: a heaping pile of factory scrap material. Their design team frequents the remnant material markets to scavenge through piles of factory castoffs before they end up in landfills. Creativity is key, as size, color, texture, and material continually vary.
All Recover garments begin at the source – recycled plastic bottles and recycled cotton.
Here’s the breakdown: First, they collect and sort post-consumer plastic bottles, stripping them of all labels and caps. Next, they salvage cotton from discarded industry scraps, which are also sorted by color and blended with polyester.The reclaimed fiber is then spun into yarn and knitted into fabric, which is ultimately cut and sewn into a garment. With their proprietary process, we’re able to make fibers that are “first quality,” which makes them look and feel great.
Looptworks products are created from excess materials that would have otherwise been incinerated or ended up in landfills.
Transforming waste materials into beautiful products of greater value is upcycling at its finest. Not only is it repurposing with a purpose, it is saving the Earth’s resources.
Through the process of upcycling, we are taking steps toward a better, healthier environment.
