Sweden's Re:newcell to launch garments made from circulose

Sweden’s Re:newcell is planning to launch garments made from circulose, a new material made from recycled cotton clothes that was developed to manage the waste generated by the fashion industry, which sees most unwanted or worn out garments end up in landfill or incineration plants. Less than one per cent of clothes are currently recycled, the company says.

The plan is to launch a range of garments made from this recycled fabric early next year through collaborations with selected retailers. The new collection of Circulose clothing was presented at the recent Première Vision fashion and textiles fair in Paris.

Circulose aims to reduce the fashion industry's reliance on virgin cotton, oil production and the harvesting of trees by reusing discarded textiles to create an innovative new material, according to European fashion media reports.

The company has its main office in Stockholm and operates a chemical recycling plant for pre- and post-consumer textiles in Kristinehamn.

The process begins with customers donating garments with a high cellulosic content (cotton and viscose) to the company, which reuses chemicals to dissolve the natural fibres. The resulting mixture is dried to produce a new, biodegradable raw material called circulose pulp, which is packaged into bales and fed back into the textile production cycle.

The company claims its recycling system is much more sustainable than existing processes used to manufacture clothing fibres, as it uses less water and chemicals, emits less carbon dioxide and helps preserve the world's resources.

Currently, the plant in Kristinehamn produces around 7,000 tonnes of circulose pulp anually. The material is certified, organic, biodegradable, recyclable and offers similar characteristics to conventional cotton fibres.
