Green Brand by Sansegal

A range of shirts, tops, jackets and legwear is produced by Sansegal from recycled cotton T-shirts, that have been rescued from a trip to the landfill. It seems Sansegal have a patented blending system that takes the shredded t-shirts and shade matches them into colour groups. Some acrylic and polyester is added strength and washability. According to Sansegal, this helps in saving the 1/3 of pound (150 gm) of agricultural chemicals that are used to make a single virgin cotton T. (Eons ago, a British company, Evergreen, offered similar fabrications, including a cloth of recycled denim jeans, blended with recycled PET bottles - true recycled poly-cotton.) ::Sansegal [by WM]
