WHAT IS IT?

Circulose developed a method to produce a thread from shredded worn out or not fashionable clothes. They create a dissolving pulp from the cotton in the discarded clothes, which they then transform into yarn. Their yarn and garments cannot be distinguished from products based on virgin material and require no addition of new material.

 

HOW IS IT MADE?

The clothes are shredded, de-buttoned, de-zipped, de-colored, and turned into a slurry. Contaminants like plastic polyester are taken out. What remains is cellulose – the biodegradable organic polymer that cotton, trees, and all green plants on earth are made out of. The slurry is dried to produce sheets of pure CirculoseĀ®. We package the sheets into bales and ship them to be made back into natural textile fibers.
