When your beloved cashmere sweater finally becomes too old to be worn any longer, we can take it off your hands and make it part of our “life after love” programme. Here, we break down the garment and reuse the scraps to create an amazing insulation, achieving both traceability and transparency of source materials, from collection and sorting to processing, under fair conditions and in accordance with the strictest GRS standards.
Resources are limited, and our planet is becoming buried under wastes caused by our consumerist society. What better reason is there to consider recycled materials? ReCashmere is a new insulation that responds to increasingly frequent consumer requests for innovative and sustainable “Ecofriendly”products.
The scraps of noble cashmere fibers and knit rags are selected and then passed through special carding machines to avoid the damaging f the fiber, maintaining its special softness and quality.
The resulting product is totally eco-friendly and made in Italy padding.
ReCashmere is a soft, light insulation with a high thermal property and good moisture management. In addition to having a good level of breathability, ReCashmere maintains its insulating properties also when wet, thanks to its hygroscopicity. Highly compressible, it has also good wind resistance, and provides high levels of warmth while being low in weight.
ReCashmere, a friend of the environment, has obtained the GRS Certification (Global Recycle Standard) promoted at an international level by the Textile Exchange organization. Their objective is that of encouraging the use of recycled materials, guaranteeing a higher transparency in the production chain and providing the final consumer with more detailed information.
