The value chain of the fashion and textile industries has traditionally been linear. It starts with raw materials and ends with waste, which most often ends up in a landfill.
We want clothes to fill closets, not landfills. That’s the reason we work with OnceMore® – a textile raw material made from what was once textile waste. Garments made from OnceMore® material are made to be either biodegradable or recyclable. Meaning that even when your favorite pieces are worn beyond repair, they won’t end up adding to the problem (because that’s no way to treat a friend).
OnceMore® uses large volumes of recycled polycotton blends. The finished dissolving pulp contains proportions of recycled textiles ready to become a textile once more.
The proportion of recycled textiles in the OnceMore® pulp opens up new possibilities for clothing manufacturers and brand owners to certify their end products according to standards such as RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) – where the levels of recycled materials are crucial. Södra received its certification according to the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) on 24th of June 2020. Certified by Control Union, CU 1059293.
