Recycled Material – The Clothing Brands Using It
Transparent shim
Great innovations are happening in fabric technology to allow brands to manufacture their clothes from recycled materials. Some activewear and swimwear brands are using REPREVE, a leading performance fiber made from recycled materials, including plastic bottles.

Denim brands like RE/DONE are taking a different approach and making their clothes from recycled materials salvaged from old vintage Levi’s.

James Jeans sources recycled cotton and Danish brand Organic Basics (shown here) make their clothes from recycled materials including recycled cashmere and a recycled nylon yarn called ECONYL which was invented in Italy.
