What is The Relooping Fashion Initiative? From reloopingfashion.org:
Re-producing old cotton clothing into new material has been very challenging, because the worn-out fibers are too short to be spun into new thread. New cotton also needs to be added to each batch, making 100% post-consumer-waste textiles an impossible dream.
Until now. The Relooping Fashion Initiative not only maintains the quality of the re-produced fibers – it can actually improve it. The process uses new revolutionary technology that allows for virtually unlimited recycling of cellulose-based fabrics without the addition of any harmful chemicals or new material. This has dramatic positive impact to the environmental issues caused by the global textile industry today.
The closed-loop value chain maintains the value of the material, eliminates waste, and introduces a whole new line of sustainable future designs.
