Recycled Raw Material

Recycled products can be transformed into new raw materials, from which new products are made.

This stamp is given to those products, in which at least 30 % of upcycled fibers are used. The fibers can be upcycled as new raw materials from both end-consumers or industrial surplus. The utilization of existing materials saves energy, water and other natural resources.

For instance, new nylon yarn can be made from old fishnets and then used again in swimsuits and leggings. Also, polyester and cotton can be downcycled as new fibers and fabrics. Precious metals, such as gold and silver, are almost always recycled raw materials.

The British brand RubyMoon chooses sustainable materials – ECONYL® nylon yarn from used fishing nets and other regenerated material is used in their quality swimwear fabrics. Recycled raw materials are also used in the clothes of the Belgium-based brand Go as U.R.

NOUKI's Kemu-swimsuit contains 78 % of recycled polyamide and 22 % of elastane. The beautiful swimsuit is designed, cut and sewn in Tampere, Finland. The fabric is knitted in Italy and printed in Aitoo, Finland.

Most lovely Molly Rosenström is wearing Shy Vibes Club's Team-dress, which is made from recycled cotton and polyester. Also, the Kaffa knit by Népra is made from 100 % recycled raw materials.
