Recycled cotton comes from pre-consumption scraps (remains from production) and post-consumption (finished fabrics and pieces at their end stages). Once they are collected and divided by color, scraps are then cut into small pieces, unraveled and reused for new productions of already colored yarn. Throughout the process of regeneration, the cotton fibers shorten under duress. In order to guarantee a finished product of the utmost quality, strength and durability, it is necessary to add virgin cotton fiber (or other types of fiber). All our recycled cotton pieces contain at least 20% of recycled cotton coming from certified supply chain components. Producing a single cotton t-shirt requires thousands of liters of water. Using recycled cotton means freeing up land that will be used to grow crops and safeguarding resources like water and soil, thanks to a reduced use of chemical products.
