Description

100% recycled cotton is the most sustainable new material on earth. Made entirely from cotton waste which is shredded mechanically, re-spun into a new yarn and knitted into a new brushed cotton fleece.

 

This is also the first and only closed loop crewneck sweatshirt. Designed from the beginning to be recycled back into our supply chain, each crewneck sweatshirt includes a QR code which enables you to return your product to us for free at end of it's life to be either recycled or resold via our charity partners to raise funds for worthwhile causes.

 

Sustainability though doesn't mean you compromise of comfort, style or fit. Our recycled cotton fleece is super soft and has a relaxed fit. Perfect for layering in the winter months or to wear alone in the summer.

 

The benefits to the environment of recycled cotton are what really makes this product stand out from the crowd.

Each coloured product other than white are hand dyed to order post production using eco friendly OEKO-Tex dyes. This dyeing process requires a fraction of the typical water usage. Each garment uses approx 20L of water which is less than a standard washing machine cycle. Due to the nature of the material and weakness of recycled cotton fibres imperfections may be found in the fabric. We think this adds to the authenticity of the product making each one unique.
