Säntis Textiles is to supply 100% recycled cotton yarns to be used as part of a new knitwear range by Mauritius-headquartered Ciel Textile.

The Säntis RCO100 recycling technology is now being made available to brands supplied by Ciel Textile. RCO100 technology converts pre-consumer industrial waste and post-consumer cotton garment waste into 100% recycled cotton yarns without the use of chemical processes or regenerated fibres.

The partnership will bring 100% recycled cotton yarns to internationally recognised brands serviced by Floreal International, a subsidiary of Ciel Textile.

“With brands around the world wanting to adopt a more circular approach, we are keen to support ongoing steps towards enhancing the longevity of the industry,” said Säntis creative director Annabelle Hutter. “A core part of our growth strategy is partnering with like-minded suppliers and designers to increase the availability of recycled cotton in the textiles industry. We look forward to working with Ciel to expand the availability of 100% recycled products and bring circular textile solutions to some of the world’s biggest fashion brands.”

“At Ciel Textile, we value circular practices, so we are very excited to work with an organisation as devoted to sustainability and environmental responsibility as Säntis Textiles,” added Max Li Ying, design and product executive at Floreal. “The reputation, innovation and exceptional technological know-how Säntis brings to textiles cannot be overstated. We look forward to a partnership that will benefit the brands we work with.”
