Giotex® is the largest producer of recycled cotton yarn in North America. The company's recycled cotton-blend yarns, has earned the coveted Control Union Global Recycle Standard. Giotex® recycled cotton-blend yarns are made from new, pre-consumer cotton textile scraps that would otherwise be discarded in landfills. The repurposed fabric scraps are collected from cutting operations, sorted by color, reprocessed, blended, and re-spun into yarns. Not only is landfill waste eliminated but, because the cotton fabric scraps are already colored, Giotex® products avoid dyeing , thus saving water and reducing environmental effluents.
