What is recycled cotton?

< All Topics

As the name implies, it is a yarn spun by recycling cotton fabric waste (pre & post-consumer). Here, ‘pre-consumer’ waste refers to the yarns and fabric cut pieces waste such as cutting scarps while ‘post-consumer’ waste refers to towels, apparel products, home furnishing waste to be repurposed. Largely pre-consumer waste is used to produce recycled cotton as it is tough to segregate post-consumer waste due to its fabric composition like cotton- polyester blend and different colour variation. Also, it’s a tedious, time consuming and labour intensive process.

Other terms used for recycled cotton are regenerated, reclaimed or shoddy cotton.
