A new circular textile cycle
S360º is an innovative, sustainable circular cycle to give a brand new life to fabrics.
The textile problem
The textile industry today is aware of its environmental problems and one of the most active in sustainability measures.
Textile industry is a large consumer of water, energy and chemicals required at different stages of production to produce fabrics.
Garment production doubled between 2000 and 2014.
Every second an amount of textiles equivalent to a truckload is buried or burned.
Our green commitments
We implement and continuously improve cleaner production processes and now we are taking a step forward in developing an innovative recycling plant that intended to provide responsible and sustainable outlet for recycled fibre and give a brand new life to fabrics.
A circular process for a new textile life cycle
We have developed a “close the loop” manufacturing process based on recycling and upcycling textiles that transforms waste into high-quality new fabrics.
Our material recycling process
During the recycling process, the textile waste is processed with stripping machines that break the yarns and fabric into smaller pieces before pulling them apart into fibre. The mix is carded several times in order to clean and mix the fibres before they are spun into new yarns and textiles.
The largest volume of recycled material sources is produced from pre-consumer waste, such as cutting scraps.
What materials do we use for recycling?
Pre-consumer recovered materials
It comes from the crushing of textile materials not used during this production process, or from unused garments.
• This can be obtained in companies specializing in the grinding process or fashion companies with discarded garments.
Post-Consumer recovered materials
This comes from the grinding of used garments.
There is a traceable process for this kind of material from the origin to the fibre.
• This can be obtained in companies specializing in the grinding process, which use discarded clothes.
• We can buy the garments directly from NGOs or organizations, which manage all the steps of the process.
• We could manage the collection –with other companies or organizations– and decide where we want to carry out each step during the process.
