Collection & recycling of
Recycling or reuse?
Reuse of textiles means that the textiles are re-marketed as a second-hand product. Of course, this is preceded by a matriculate sorting process ensuring the supply of second-hand clothing matches the demand in the market.
If clothing is not fit for reuse or if this is not preferred, we will proceed with recycling. In this case the textile is reduced to the fiber level in a mechanical recycling process. These fibers are used in designer furniture, acoustic panels and insulation material, in the automotive industry, processed into felts and many other applications ensuring the textile fiber has a sustainable future again.
True circularity can be realized if the fibers gained from recycling process are used in new fabrics. This process is also known as high-quality textile recycling or upcycling. These recycled fibers are processed into yarns and fabrics for new clothing. A circular process where innovation is key and long-term investments are required. Boer Group Fashion to Fiber is current the only company in Europe able to produce spinnable fibersout of recycled textiles.
