ReCircled & Kaltex Denim Unveil 100% Circular Denim Jeans
ReCircled LLC, a marketer of certified preowned garments, footwear and accessories, and Kaltex USA, a denim producer will partner to launch a fully circular denim fabric in the western hemisphere.
ReCircled will work with brands and retailers on unsaleable items and then sort them brand wise. Once these products have been sorted, cleaned and detrimmed, they will move to Kaltex for recycling into a new denim fabric, thereby completing the full circle.
“From the beginning we knew that collaboration was needed to build the systems that allow for recycling textiles at the highest level. With the system we now have in place, it’s finally a reality,” Scott Kuhlman, CEO of ReCircled said.
“Kaltex has been recycling cotton for 15 years but now we are truly circular with the infrastructure to pick up cotton products from almost any place in the USA and transport to our facility,” Eric Goldstein, EVP Kaltex Apparel said.
“This process is the first of its kind in the hemisphere, is transparent and sustainable with a very low carbon footprint, and truly circular,” he added.
