Fall 2019 Walra introduced a series of recycled products titled ‘Remade Cotton’. Customers and consumers are asking for sustainable products and Walra answers by releasing Bath & Bedding lines made with recycled materials.
The line of bathing towels are made using recycled materials. Resulting in not only sustainable, but also well absorbing products. Also the Bedlinen is made of recycled materials and tested successfully in comfort and quality. Furthermore Walra will also use sustainable packing materials for their products. Using recycled paper and biobased polybags.
The Walra ‘recycling’ motto:
“You & me, taking care of our next generation.”
ASOS has committed to 100% sustainable cotton by 2025. “Denim is an investment product with a longer life cycle than most garments, but is one of the most water consuming materials and has high manufacturing waste statistics. Our Sustainable Denim strategy aims to reduce the amount of virgin materials and water used in denim production, and promote sustainable design and production.”
ASOS has increased the use of recycled cotton in their fabrics by collaborating with the European Clothing Action Plan (ECAP) and REMOkey to help embedding circularity into their supply chain. ASOS has stocked 17,300 Mens and Womenswear recycled denim items containing 18% to 24% post-consumer denim.”
ASOS – Denim & the environment:
“Reducing the environmental impact of our denim.”
The ESG Green collection is an upcycled yarn collection of recycled cotton, recycled denim or recycled polyester, blended with virgin raw white and dope dyed fibres for environmentally friendly circular fabrics with optimal performance. We work closely together with all partners in the circular supply chain to develop this collection further and launched the #hackyourjeans awareness project.

“We work to create fashion and beauty making of recycling the only possible choice to support the environment and the people who are part of it.”
The yarns and fabrics originate from recycled raw materials, from textile by-products or used clothes without the use of dye. Products that fit perfectly in the circular economy philosophy.

“The green fabric that respects the planet”
Landi – a family clothing company from Florence since 1948 – presents a Zerosettanto studio men’s coat made with 95% recycled content at Pitti Uomo, one of the most important events for men’s fashion.
The project that lands at Pitti Uomo, after years of experimentation and refinement, was born from the collaboration with REMOkey. “Our work began in 2013, but now we present ourselves officially with a certified label and a serious calculation of the entire route. Also because the market perspective has changed: if a few years ago a high-end garment made with regenerated fabric was not ‘understood’ by consumers, today concepts such as reuse and respect for the environment are sought after and appreciated.” explains Marco Landi.
“The green direction is the future and we who have always followed sustainability paths now want to accelerate”
