RECYCLED CLOTHES

PYRATEX® rewear is made with organic cotton and circulose fiber made from post consumer textile waste.

The process of the fiber was invented to change the industry's consumption: PYRATEX® rewear fabrics do not compromise style nor quality, but elevate it to the highest standards of responsible fashion.

Through ground-breaking processes and powered by 100% renewable energy, the fiber is obtained by turning textile waste like an old pair of jeans or production scraps into a dissolving pulp. This pulp is used to make man-made cellulosic fibers.

 

PROCESS

Textile waste and production scraps are collected to start the process of dissolvement. The fibers that best fit the creation process, should preferably be cotton based due to their high cellulose content.

 

After collection, the waste goes through a purification process where buttons and zippers are removed. The idea is to get rid of all those components that can affect the final quality of the fabric such as plastic or polyester. It is only the cellulose extracted from the textile waste which is kept, a biodegradable polymer that predominates in all plants.

 

The final result becomes a paste, and this is where it all starts. The paste is treated by mechanical processes, to obtain a strong 100% cellulose structure, which in its turn is mixed with GOTS organic cotton to become a yarn, and finally it is knitted into a PYRATEX® fabric.
