UPCYCLED cotton

Our PYRATEX® upcycled fabrics are made with upcycled cotton originating from post industrial textile waste. Our fiber producer collects textile residue, used garments and fabric waste from productions in Portugal.

1kg of virgin cotton needs around 13 000 litres of water during farming, processing and dying.

1kg of our upcycled cotton needs 0 litres: it is not farmed, processed, or dyed.

The fibers are mechanically recycled, and the yarn is spun in Spain, a process during which 50% of the energy used is solar. It is not a chemical recycling process, and no pulp is involved: the fiber is, and remains, cotton.
