We teamed up with a local knitter who works with recycled cotton to make these beauties. They are made in the USA from recycled cotton that is created from pre-consumer fibers and clippings that are collected after the cut and sew process. So new pieces that would otherwise be discarded get a second life. It's an awesome method of manufacturing.
Environmental benefits to using recycled cotton are:
Reduction in incinerator and landfull use, but reprocessing pre-consumer textile waste.
Recycled cotton fibers for yarn spinning require no new dyeing, saving water and adding no new pollutants. The simplified manufacturing process reduces energy and resource use.
Recycled cotton requires no land use, intensive water irrigation, and no new fertliziers or pesticides.
