Our PYRATEX® upcycled fabrics are made with recycled cotton originating from post industrial textile waste.. Together with our fiber partner we collect textile residues and fabric waste from productions from all over the world.
1kg of virgin cotton needs around 13 000 litres of water during farming, processing and dying.
1kg of our upcycled cotton needs 0 litres: it is not farmed, processed, nor dyed.
The fibers in our fabrics are mechanically recycled in Spain, and the yarn is spun in Portugal, a process during which 50% of the energy used is solar. It is not a chemical recycling process, and no pulp is involved: the fiber is, and remains, cotton.
