Sans Soucie clothing design studio to be transformed into new garments and textiles
from our cutting sewing operations in Central America, the Caribbean Basin and Mexico
We recycle 100% of our textile clippings from our cutting sewing operations in Central America, the Caribbean Basin and Mexico. These textile clips are shipped back to our yarn-spinning operations in North Carolina where they are mechanically reprocessed into fibres which are used in alternate products internally or sold to recycling companies who convert the clippings into materials used in various textile products.
In 2017, we entered into a partnership with Katherine Soucie of Sans Soucie Textile and Design to reduce our sheer hosiery waste by giving it new life. This partnership with Sans Soucie, a zero waste textile and clothing design studio, allows our sheer hosiery offcuts and defects to be transformed into new garments and textiles.
