Recycled clothing is clothing made from recycled material, material which was originally used to make other clothing. Done properly, this is an excellent, sustainable method to lower the environmental impact of raw materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill or the oceans. The great thing about recycled clothing is that both natural materials like cotton and synthetic materials like polyester are given a new lease at life, lowering eco-wastage and creating a cycle of sustainability.
When it comes to recycled clothing, there are four main processes. The first two are resale of either to local charity shops or to other countries. The latter two are recycling natural materials like cotton and synthetic materials like polyester and rayon, taking them from previous products and turning them into new ones.
Our ethically-made, eco-friendly organic cotton is 100% recycled and is made by pulling apart and meticulously cleaning cotton, before remaking it into new, fresh fabrics by spinning its fibres back into yarn. Meanwhile, we also recycle synthetic fabrics like polyester so as the world moves onto more biodegradable clothing, synthetic fabrics aren’t just counterproductively cast and dumped everywhere.
We create a never-ending supply chain of rebirth instead of waste, where no fabric made with love, time and care is left behind to bake in a landfill or drift in the sea.
At Sherpa, we believe you and the planet can thrive together. Our sustainable recycled polyester fabric has a lot of advantages, from helping save the planet to giving you clothes that provide warm comfort and are stretchy for ease of movement. The fabric is also moisture-wicking and has innovative antimicrobial properties, meaning it tackles sweat and odours, and helps you safeguard against microbes that cause fungal infections.
It’s also abrasion resistant, with long life use, being made to resist wear and tear from repetitive motion, making it great clothing for outdoor activities and exertions like cycling and hiking.
At Sherpa, we supply a dynamic range of recycled and sustainable men’s clothing that comes in an array of rich colours and exclusive designs that just breathe the finest traditions of Himalayan and Nepalese craft.
