After all the sorting, we recycle the ‘useless’ textiles. This recycling process begins by cleaning the textiles: taking buttons, zippers and tags, etc. off (even these are re-used later!).
Once everything is cleaned and deleted, what remains is sheer fabric. All these fabrics we sort again color and material. Blue to blue and wool with wool? Check! Then the recycling process begins: we cut the fabric into pieces and fibers.
During this recycling process, we use minimum water (0,01liter water per 1 kg textile). But what we don’t use are dyes. In this way Wolkat contributes to a sustainable process.
