The collection, which is now available across 11 markets globally, features lyocell garments made with 50 per cent recycled polycotton textile waste and polyester garments with 43 per cent recycled polycotton textile waste. Circ’s innovative recycling technology is the only platform to successfully separate polycotton blended textile waste and recover both cellulosic and synthetic fibres, Mills Fabrica and Zara said in a joint press release.
Mills Fabrica’s portfolio company Circ and Zara have launched a women’s capsule collection made of polycotton textile waste.
Circ claims that this is the first time that recycled polyester and lyocell clothing manufactured from polycotton textile waste is made available for consumers.
The collection showcases trendy garments in burgundy tones.
With creative direction from the design team at Zara Woman, the collection showcases on-trend and light garments in burgundy tones that are designed to keep in circulation.
The Mills Fabrica aims to support innovative and disruptive technologies in techstyle (technology and apparel technology) through its investments, incubation programmes, office spaces, lab, and impact retail stores since 2018. It has supported Circ since 2021 through investments, marketing exposure, and connections to the textile and apparel industry. The Mills Fabrica’s portfolio of cutting edge techstyle companies also includes Renewcell, Colorifix, Geltor, and Michroma among others.
“This is the first-time recycled polyester and lyocell clothing manufactured from polycotton textile waste is in the hands of consumers, and we are taking important steps towards making circularity the new standard. Circ and Zara want to create a new future in which the garments hanging in our closets are made from recycled materials that can then be recycled over and over again,” said Peter Majeranowski, CEO of Circ.
“We’re proud to see technology-empowered solutions making such a positive impact in the textile and apparel industry, contributing to a more sustainable future. The Mills Fabrica looks forward to our continued support of Circ as they make sustainable fashion accessible to the masses through this unprecedented partnership with Zara,” said Cintia Nunes, general manager and head of Asia, The Mills Fabrica.
