Recycled Synthetic and Cotton Fibres:
The Recycled part can be synthetic , cotton or both fibres. Currently fabrics made with recycled yarns being offered by Matrix are with max 30% recycled synthetic fibres (polyester) and remaining parts in the blend being virgin fibres.
Organic Cotton :
Matrix has been manufacturing garments with organic cotton fabrics for many years, in partnership with some of our key customers.
Recycled Polyester :
For several years, Matrix has been producing garments using recycled polyester for some of our environmentally conscious brands.
Recycled Cotton :
A significant percentage of the fabrics we use at Matrix goes to waste as shaping waste and sewing scrap. While we have made efforts to responsibly dispose of this waste by sending it to Rag Dhurrie manufacturers in North India, we have recently initiated a partnership with one of India's leading Yarn Mills. Through this collaboration, we return our production waste to them for shredding and reduction into fibers, which can then be blended with fresh cotton (up to 30%).
As part of our sustainability efforts, we will soon introduce fabrics made with recycled cotton yarns. These fabrics will contain a minimum of 30% recycled cotton and 70% virgin fibers, meeting the requirements for GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certification of recycled yarns. The yarn count range for these fabrics will be Ne 20 - Ne 30s.
