What is Recycled Cotton?
Recycled Cotton can be generally defined as converting cotton fabric into cotton fiber reused in textile products. Recycled cotton is also commonly referred to as regenerated cotton, reclaimed cotton, or shoddy.
Why do we use Recycled Cotton?
Recycled Cotton prevents additional textile waste and requires far fewer resources than conventional or organic cotton. This makes it a great sustainable option. The quality of cotton may be lower than the new cotton by recycling from old garments or textile leftovers.
Where is our Recycled Cotton material from?
Textile recycling comes from two primary sources:
1. Pre-consumer: includes scraps created by yarn and fabric by-products.
2. Post-consumer: repurposed garments, upholstery, towels, household items.
Our source of supply is China-based, and therefore all materials are traceable and duly certified.
At Rivta, this is how we transform the waste cotton into our brand-new bags:
