The best material is the one that can be recycled. In the modern world, clothing production technology has reached the point where it is not necessary to produce new cotton. It is enough just to recycle the one that was already in use. Moreover, it does not lose much in quality. This is achieved by modern technology of unweaving into fibres. They undergo a certain processing and become absolutely recyclable.

Nowadays, the main world brands have already switched to secondary processing, which greatly reduced production costs, but also brought the processing of light industry waste to a new stage of development. At the moment, modern technologies of non-waste production have been developed. At the same time, cotton fibres are, along with polyester, the most common in the world. Polyester and cotton account for 51% and 24.5% of global fibre production in 2017.

Two Types Of Processing: Mechanical And Chemical

Mechanical recycling involves the crushing of post-industrial waste: materials resulting from industrial and commercial processing in the manufacture of textiles. Post-Consumer Waste: Items returned or recycled by consumers. Also, products with different physical properties are used. Chemical recycling includes processes in which the structure of a waste material is broken down into its constituent components and then recycled back into the original material.

Completely new, previously unused materials are recycled. There is even a special term for such recycled materials – pre-consumer recycling, which can be translated as “processing before consumption.”

The remains can be different – this is raw cotton, and scraps of materials, denim, different types of threads. To produce a new fabric, the scraps are first crushed, and a fibrous mass is obtained, somewhat reminiscent of cotton wool. This is the new raw material for fabric.

Then threads are pulled out of this mass, from which a new fabric is woven. It is important to maintain the length of the fiber – the longer it is, the stronger the new fabric will be. It is very critical to have high-quality source material and an established process for its transformation into a new canvas. In addition to cotton, approximately 15% polyester is used in the fabric.

Polyester is needed in order for the fabric to be more elastic and wearable. If the fabric is completely made of natural material, then the fibres will begin to lose their original structure and will collapse.

Who is this product intended for? First, on people who buy such clothes for environmental reasons. Of course, clothes should be fashionable and comfortable. Therefore, things made from scraps of fabric and recycled cotton are a new trend in the modern world. Here the basic principle of environmental friendliness, style and main fashion trends is observed.

Therefore, all world brands have switched to this type of production, which not only retains exclusivity, but also brings waste-free production to the fore, which is currently more profitable than buying raw materials and creating fabrics from scratch. At the same time, the quality is not lost!
