‘KLAIMET® RECYCLING PROCESS 

´Klaimet® combines sustainable values and high quality. We are committed to use only 100% recycled plastic and textile waste as raw material.

Textile industry’s cotton waste makes up half of our raw materials. The other half, PET plastic, is widely used in plastic bottles. First cotton waste is mechanically shredded into fine fibers and then blended with PET fibers to produce fabric.

The final garment is a combination of great fit, high quality, and true sustainability. By choosing a ‘Klaimet product®, you are able to start a journey towards a sustainable textile industry.

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE

Don’t get fooled. Organic cotton sounds good, but does little to solve the environmental burden caused by the linear fashion industry, cotton farming, and the use of virgin raw materials. Instead, the linear supply chains need to be changed into circular ones. By doing so, ‘Klaimet® decreases the negative environmental effects caused by the linear supply chains and the amount of waste that’s being dumped to the landfills as you read.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

The textile industry is widely considered the second most destructive industry to the environment after oil. In 2015, the global textile industry was responsible for the consumption of 79 billion cubic metres of water, 1 715 million tons of CO2 emissions and 92 million tons of waste. By 2030, these numbers are estimated to increase by at least 50%.
Global plastic pollution is another problem we’re facing. At ‘Klaimet® we are solving that problem by turning recycled plastic bottles into sustainably produced clothes. Recycled cotton makes up the rest. This perfect duo gives you comfortable high quality clothes from 100% recycled waste.

We have developed our own supply chain and require certificates from all of our partners. All ‘Klaimet products® are made in EU with certified raw materials under certified working conditions.
