Recycled fabric (repreve) is also called rayon, recycled fabric is the straw, bark and other cellulose dissolved after spinning, although the moisture absorption and permeability of recycled fabric is good, but after sweat absorption or washing strength, recycled fabric will significantly decline, strength decline, clothing easy to damage.

RPET fabric, also known as cola bottle environmental protection fabric, recycled fabric is a new type of environment-friendly fabric. Recycled fabric uses environmentally friendly recycled yarn, and Recycled fabric source of low carbon makes it create a new concept in the field of recycling. Using recycled “Coke bottle” to recover textiles made of recycled fiber, 100% of the recycled materials can be recycled into PET fiber, which can effectively reduce waste.

Why are recycled fabric with double prices being sought after?


According to the recent orders of the enterprise, it can be seen that the sales momentum of recycled fabric is good. Fabrics such as polyester taffeta and best-selling imitation silk, which were once robbed, have long been overshadowed in front of recycled fabric. The same piece of polyester taffeta fabric is made of recycled fiber, and the fabric with the label of “recycled environmental protection” becomes a high-end product, but the price of recycled fabric is quite different from that of ordinary polyester. Compared with conventional fabrics, the price of recycled fabric is 50% higher than that of conventional fabrics, and the finished fabric is 80% higher.


In fact, recycled fabric are not just raw materials that use recycled yarns, but all companies involved in the production and operation of products must comply with GRS standards, that is to say, from raw materials, weaving, printing and dyeing, and even clothing, all the factories involved must comply with GRS standards. Therefore, this is one of the reasons why clothing buyers can accept recycled fabric at twice the price of conventional fabrics.


So is there a certain degree of difficulty in the production of recycled fabric? In fact, the threshold is not low, but it is not particularly easy to apply, it can be said that the “gold content” is relatively high. General Manager Zhang also revealed to the editor that the extinction and recycled peach skin he produced is more difficult than ordinary recycled fabric: first, it comes from raw materials, and it is very difficult to purchase raw materials; second, printing and dyeing requires very mature dyeing technology, otherwise the cloth surface is prone to defects.

Can recycled fabric become a trend in the future?


The international demand for recycled fabric is growing rapidly, and the technology of recycled fabric is becoming more and more mature, so the fabric has sprung up everywhere in major textile towns. In addition, consumers’ concept of environmental protection and sustainable development is getting stronger and stronger, so they are more willing to buy recycled fabric, so the sales momentum of this kind of fabric is soaring.
