Italdenim believes in sustainability, recycling and waste minimization.It has created the online recycled denim fabric made by regenerating production waste of cotton yarn, traced to fiber, yarn and dyed again.
In a normal cotton dyeing process, the first and the last 500 meters of a dyeing batch - dyed in the startup and shutdown of the machine - are normally discarded because the optimal color occurs when the machine is operating at full capacity.
Italdenim, based in Italy, thought instead of regenerating this yarn it would create a proposal that meets the needs of the most discerning customers to ecology and respect for the environment.
Recycled Denim consists of 100 per cent cotton fabrics (60 per cent recycled and 40 per cent new) and fabrics combining cotton with polyester fibers. These are obtained from the recycling of post-consumer plastic bottles collected in North Italy, a double recycling therefore that benefits the environment.
The full control of the entire recycling process, which starts from the yarn and not from the fabric, allows the company to certify that its regenerated denim is composed exclusively of cotton, or cotton and polyester, without the addition of other unidentified fibers, as often happens in the process of recycling materials.
