After collecting used textiles from our network of suppliers, OnceMore® revives the fiber, combining it with wood from responsibly managed forests to create a material that closes the loop.

Textilies deserves better than the trash

With OnceMore®, Södra is making an important contribution in the shift towards a sustainable textile industry. Instead of contributing to landfills, our partners supply us with their blended-fiber textile waste. The textile waste we use is traceable, secured over several years, and consistent – to ensure that we have a reliable product for the long term. Today we only use RCS certified post consumer textile waste.

What we are looking for?

Fibre content to be minimum 70% cotton by weight and maximum 30% polyester, in a total batch, however up to 50% polyester is accepted in individual garments. No other fibers may be included in the textile parts such as fabric, thread, and labelling, but excludes accessories such as buttons, and zips.  

Color: Only white/off-white are accepted. Dyed textile may be accepted after trials.  

Prints: Pigment prints on less than 5% of the surface are accepted. Reactive dye prints are accepted after trials. Heat seal transfer prints that adhere to the fabric surface are not acceptable.  

Elastane is not acceptable and also no other synthetic fibers such as nylon, polyamide, polypropylene are accepted.  

Interfacing should be cotton voile or cellulose where possible, polyester based interfacing will need to fall within the 30% non-cotton content. No glue is accepted.  

Cellulose fibres (mainly lyocell and viscose) are accepted in max 5 % of the total percentage of a batch, but the percentage in individual garments may be higher. See our material specification below.


But we can't do this alone

Collaboration is the key to maximising the potential of OnceMore®. We are therefore always interested in finding partners who can supply us with high volumes of textile waste for recycling. Today our partners in textile recycling are Frankenhuis and Rester, and we also have a collaboration with PM & Vänner .

As a supplier to OnceMore®, your company becomes part of a long-term solution to the global environmental threat posed by the ever-growing mountains of textile waste.

Let's kick the habit of waste!
