Waste raw materials are sorted by hand for quality and colour (no dyeing needed) and contaminants (such as zips, buttons and linings) are removed, the material is shredded (‘pulled’) and spun to produce (colour-coordinating) yarns, fabrics and non-woven felt. "This process of transformation is like watching an amazing magic show; we are so lucky to work with our passion; an example of responsible manufacturing and partnerships for future generations."
From post-consumer waste, iinouiio selects garments ‘too good’ for recycling to be re-sold on iinouiio's Depop platform: https://www.depop.com/vintageprelovedknitwear/. The remainder is converted into beautiful new yarns and fabrics: www.iinouiio.com. Follow iinouiio on Instagram @iinouiiorecycledtextiles.
