United Colors of Benetton recycled wool garments use a mix of virgin and recycled fibers (at least 20%) from certified supply chains. After being manually selected on the basis of color, quality and composition, all accessory components (buttons, zippers, linings, labels, etc.) are removed from the used clothing’s wool and fabric scraps and processing waste and then shredded, eliminating any of the original impurities from the plant. Once returned to its original state, the wool can be spun again to obtain new products. In this way, raw materials are saved, and the amount of waste and pollutants released into the environment is reduced, while guaranteeing the standard quality of United Colors of Benetton garments.
