Plain Weave 5 m


Product description

The fabric, made of recycled cotton and recycled plastic bottles, is plain-woven. The fabric is a light, coarsely textured cotton-polyester blend that suits both garments and interior textiles. We use plain woven fabric in all our fabric bags and collared shirts. The fabric measures approximately 144 x 500 cm. We use a batch of this size to manufacture nine Pure Waste fabric tote bags. The material costs around €7 per metre.

Approximately 17–20% of industrial water pollutants come from the textile industry, specifically fabric dyeing and processing. The plain weave fabric is not dyed, and harmful chemicals are not used in its manufacture; the gathered cutting waste determines the fabric’s colour. Compared to an equivalent product made from virgin materials, fabric from recycled materials uses 99% less water and generates 50% fewer CO2 emissions.

This fabric has been responsibly manufactured in India.

Please note that our recycling process is not entirely clinical and our products may contain small amounts of different coloured fibers. In dark colours, fibers of different colours do not stand out, but in light colours they are more easily visible. For us, these little coloured fibers in our fabric are a feature that reminds us of the uniqueness and origin of our products.
