We collect the material only from the garment factory working for US/EU market to ensure our recycle cotton is also up to the standard in terms of color fastness and the use of dyestuff. Please don't worry! We will never recycle the used garment or any other material would possibly harm the human body.
Eco Friendly is the key word for 21st century, more and more consumer looking for the way to reduce their carbon footprint. By estimation, to produce a cotton garment, 20% of energy consume by cotton growing and 50% consume by dyeing and finishing the fabric. The advantage of using Recycolor to substitutes conventional dyeing is not only saving the energy on cotton growing and dyeing, it can also reduce using the limited clean water on dyeing process and at the same time save the environment by water pollution release by the dyeing factory.
All Recycolor yarn (colored and raw white) are made by fabric cutting lost which generated by cut and sew process of making a garment, this is so different compare with other recycle cotton product in the market which made by comber noil (wastage of yarn spinning), as we don't feel this is a true recycle since the textile industry had been using those wastage to make normal cotton yarn without informing to consumer, the most important is the comber noil recycle require dyeing process same as conventional cotton but Recycolor give you the melange color effect.
The Recycolor yarn are certificated by Control Union certifications' Global Recycle Standard (GRS). All related packing and promotional items are made by recycled material.
