RE_BRANDED CASHMERE - HIGH-QUALITY AND SUSTAINABLE KNITWEAR FROM ITALY
"Every day, about 140 tonnes of clothes are thrown away in the world".
The sustainable and eco-friendly company Re_branded cashmere was founded in Italy in 2015. The young and innovative label has made it its mission to combine sustainability and respect for our environment with modern and classic designs and to recycle cashmere. In keeping with the trend of the times, the label's first zero-waste collection was created. Zero Waste - production without any waste products. Sustainability is particularly important to the young company when it comes to cashmere, the most precious yarn in the world. Because: Only once a year, the warm and soft undercoat is obtained from the first combing of the cashmere goat, approx. 150 grams per animal. For one jumper, usually six to seven goats have to leave their undercoat.
How is recycled cashmere made?
The process of developing new yarns from used cashmere creates unique knitwear and accessories.
Re_branded acquires an average of 50 tonnes of used cashmere clothing every month, which would otherwise have literally ended up "in the bin".
The fabric is thoroughly cleaned, sorted by colour and then further processed in a mechanical process, without any further dyeing processes or chemicals, which allows it to be reused and recycled.
Is recycled cashmere inferior?
Those who are now worried that recycled cashmere could be second-rate in some way can rest assured. The recycled cashmere yarn is in no way inferior to the conventional one. It has the same soft, warming and climate-balancing properties. Since the newly spun recycled yarn is spun a little tighter, the fibre strength even reduces the pilling that is completely normal with cashmere enormously.
The divisions of Re_branded
The Re_branded company is divided into three divisions:
Re_branded - The manufacture of eco-friendly knitwear made from recycled cashmere.
Re_fabric - The production of soft jersey fabrics made from recycled cashmere.
Re-home - The production of home furniture and accessories made from cashmere.
The label Re_branded cashmere has managed to give the most precious natural fibre cashmere a new life with its idea and the necessity of ecological sustainability.
