360 process

Turning waste into new products allows a reduction of primary resources’ use by at least 50%; a decrease, during the transformation process, of chemicals consumption by 98,5%, water by 85% and energy by 83%; as well as a cutback in the total amount of textile material discarded in landfills.

We can recycle only the client’s waste, ours or a mix of both, it’s the client choice.

The making of our products results from a six-step process:

RECYCLED COTTON

The production of only one of our 360 t-shirts, containing 60% tencel and 40% recycled cotton, saves between 722 and 1400 litres of water when compared to a t-shirt made with conventional cotton.

recycled yarn

With a production capacity of 6 ton/day, 360 recycled yarn is the main result after the transformation process is completed, from which we are able to produce two outputs variations

Recycled Jersey Fabrics

Knit fabric adequate for clothing manufacture, whose manufacture is the buyer’s responsibility

Currently, we are working with 2 main compositions:

Recycled Cotton + Organic Cotton Recycled + Tencel™ Lyocell

plus a new blend:

Recycled Cotton + Seacell™

Recycled Jersey Garments

Besides the jersey fabric itself, we can expand its transformation by also doing manufacture of various apparel items, from simple t-shirts or hoodies to ….

This way, the waste that enters our factory can return to our clients as completely new recycled piece of clothing, ready for sale to the main public.

recycled paper

Although the recycling process is thorough, some wastage simply can’t be re-used in a textile context.
For that reason, another side processing chain was added to this project, which respects to the idea of using the cutting waste (pre-consumer short textile fibres) as a material in the production of paper – an operation planned to be up and running in 2022, allowing an even greater waste reduction.

transparency
and traceability

Through the mapping of our complete supply chain, we’re determined to capture accurate data about all of ou r suppliers and facilities, ensuring that each operator is compliant with safety, sustainability, and social responsibility requirements. A transparency that’s essential for the quality of our workflow and of our client’s products.

On a more individual level, all of our outputs have an extended traceability, with our products and inputs being tracked from the very start of the supply chain until end-use.

This guarantees the necessary control and proof of origin for the best quality end product, through the generation of a single reference that compiles all the information about a fabric’s journey – it’s origin, location, transformation processes, etc – so it can be known for sure how it is ethically produced from end to end.
