recycle:

Tearing it apart to get it together

Old worn out jeans are cut into pieces and put together into a new fabric.

Cotton fibres actually last much longer than we normally tend to use, or wear them. In 2007, Nudie Jeans started the Recycle Denim Maniacs programme, in which a number of textile students were chosen to create new designs out of old, worn-out jeans.

As an extension of this idea, together with ISKO(tm) we recycle old worn-out jeans in order to manufacture new denim. The garments are cut into pieces, and then milled down to a cotton-like pulp, which in turn becomes new yarn, used for new fabrics.

Since the fibres of pure recycled yarn are very short, virgin organic cotton is added in order to get a durable fabric. The final denim is slubby with a soft hand feel. The slubs are mainly a consequence of the natural irregularities of the recycled yarn.

The fabric is a red cast pure indigo denim, the undyed weft yarn has its own blue grey colour coming from the recycled denim. Post Recycle Dry is made in two fits in a limited edition of totally 500 pairs.

Grim Tim Post Recycle Dry was available the winter 2011/2012.
