Recover & Ferre


At our partners Recover and Ferre, old jeans turn into new yarn. Recover receives the old jeans, shreds these and mixes the recycled fibres with organic cotton. This mixed fibre is then turned into a new yarn at Ferre.










Since 1947 the third-generation family business Ferre has been pioneering the production of sustainable materials. In 2006, Ferre gave a name to its recycled product line: Recover was born. Both believe that recycling is one of the most innovative ways to transform the fashion industry and we agree! The factories are located in a small town in Alicante, Spain. Their work is led by a team of experts in textiles, fashion and sustainability.

The Process

The Process


When the jeans arrive to the factory the metals are cut out of the jeans. The fabric is then shredded until it resembles a bluish version of fresh cotton. Mechanical recycling shortens the filaments of recycled cotton, therefore in order to ensure the best quality, the fibre is mixed with virgin organic cotton. Lastly the fibres are spun into new yarn.
