We investigate plastic waste streams and experiment to invent new textiles. This made us one of the first companies in the world that created soft and silk-like fashion fabrics out of recycled polyester. Now we know that almost any fabric can be developed with RPET yarns. Not only suitable for the fashion industry, but also for many more industries. This January we’ve launched Waste2Wear’s first fabric collection for curtains and upholstery made from recycled plastic bottles as well as an innovative concept of underflooring. All in close co-creation with our dedicated distribution partners.
Recycled polyester is made from recycled plastic bottles. By choosing recycled polyester, we’re able to deliver the same technical performance in fabric, but with a significant smaller environmental footprint.
Used in for example fridges, aircons and disposable plastics is a plastic that is rarely recycled. Waste2Wear is taken it a step further launching the first RPP-fabrics certified by GRS, perfectly suitable for durable shopping bags and reusable packaging. Your home appliances no longer need to die in landfill. Read more about it.
Through using plastic waste as a resource for our textiles we fulfil an important step of this circular value chain. Going forward we are committed to connect with partners to explore opportunities for recycling end-of-life garments into new yarns. We fully support Circular.Fashion, Berlin, among others, with its digital platform for circular design and closed-loop recycling.
