Recycling jeans - let us break it down for you

Recycling jeans - let us break it down for you

JEANS CAN BE REPAIRED over and over again. But eventually you reach the point when it is time to move on. All good things come to an end. But a pair of worn out jeans can be used to make something else. 
Recycling reduces waste, saves energy, and reduces the consumption of raw materials.

Recycling – to break something down into raw materials that are then used to make new items.

COTTON FIBERS actually last much longer than we normally tend to use or wear them. A pair of jeans can be recycled in various ways. We are constantly looking for new ways to extend the life of the cotton fiber.
We have turned old worn out jeans into new ones by cutting and milling the old ones down to a cotton-like pulp which become raw material for new yarn.

In the spring of 2013 rag rugs made from old Nudie Jeans were released. The rugs were made from jeans that were cut into strips and then woven by hand on manual shuttle looms.

UPHOLSTERING OLD CHAIRS and sofas with worn out jeans is somewhere in between reusing and recycling. Through the years we have turned many dull looking sofas into beautiful denim patchwork creations for our office, showrooms, and shops.

RECYCLED WOOL is new in our spring collection 2014. Used wool is recycled and mixed with cotton and other fibers to make nice sweaters as Yngve Wool Indigo.
