Social enterprise ReBlend produces its circular textiles by recycling mixed post-consumer fabric that would otherwise be incinerated. Its work centres on recycling blended material in particular as this accounts for a large proportion of textile waste, yet recycling often focuses more on pure monomaterials such as 100% wool, cotton or polyester. For ReBlend, the 100% recycled multimaterials it creates also offer a higher degree of longevity and sustainability. The recycling process starts with sorting the waste textiles by colour and material, and removing zips and buttons. The textiles are then shredded and yarn is spun from a composition of the new shredded fibres and recycled polyester to create ReBlend’s high-end fabric collections. The brand’s ultimate goal is to inspire the textile industry to transition to a circular textile economy.
