Cone First North American Denim Mill To Join CIRCULOSE Network
USA based Cone Denim has joined the CIRCULOSE Supplier Network and in turn has become the first denim mill in North America to join the network.
Renewcell, a pioneering leader in textile recycling innovation, announced the launch of the CIRCULOSE Supplier Network last month.
CIRCULOSE Supplier Network compromises of yarn and textile producers committed to streamlining and increasing CIRCULOSE production across the supply chain.
“Our partnership in the CIRCULOSE Supplier Network underscores Cone Denim’s commitment to drive change toward a sustainable fashion future,” said Caitlyn Holt, Cone Denim Director of Product and Innovation.
“We are committed to making the textile value chain circular by increasing the percentage of recycled content in the denim fabrics we design, develop, and bring to market,” she added.
CIRCULOSE is a next-generation raw material derived from the recovery of cellulose found in worn-out clothing and transformed into a dissolving pulp made from 100 percent recycled textiles.
The pulp serves as the foundation for various types of regenerated fibres, including viscose, lyocell, modal, acetate, and other man-made cellulosic fibers.
Joining the CIRCULOSE Supplier Network is among several initiatives Cone Denim is undertaking as part of the role the 132-year-old mill is playing toward the adoption of circularity in the industry.
