CLOSED-LOOP PROCESS

 

ECO-INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURING SYSTEM

 

More than a process, it is a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary, to guide us in changing our practices to emulate sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use.

 

Solely intended to create sustainably designed textiles, focusing on upcycling textile excess to create premium natural fabrics. Collecting pre-consumer industrial waste from various textile mills, grounding these scraps back into fiber, to spin these once again and fabricate new yarns as well as both woven and knit fabrics.

 

Our circular manufacturing process is chemical-free, dye-free and uses minimal water and energy. Saving up to 20,000 liters of water for every kilogram of upcycled material. During our operation, we do not utilize any synthetic fibers, therefore our yarns and fabrics all remain 100% natural and biodegradable. Turning this excess waste into upcycled natural textiles, all created within  a closed-loop system where all material is transformed into one of higher value and utility.  

 

Our production is based on eliminating the concept of waste, as our own waste from our upcycling process is later donated to coffee-growers to use as compost to grow specialty coffee in the highlands of Guatemala.

 

Our eco-industrial techniques have led us to reduce our carbon emissions, water and energy usage, and vastly minimize the consumption of new virgin raw material. Reusing discarded textiles that will allow for abundance and endless life cycles. Leading the way towards a sustainable and ethical industry, proudly operating under a circular economy, like the earth itself.
