This is how it works:
1. We take back worn-out clothes made in NOOSA from our partners or directly from the consumers through collection systems
2. The clothes are de-buttoned, shredded and turned into a bulk blend of fibers.
3. Through a patented process, the fiber blend is solubilized in a green solvent to allow a separation of NOOSA fibers from all other compounds (other fibers, pigments, additives…).
4. The solubilized fibers enter into a process turning them back into pure lactic acid, the original building block used to produce back a virgin NOOSA fiber.
Our recycling process is so clean that you can drink the solvent (FDA approved).
