Recycled Wool Cushion Cover, by ReSpiin
A plain wool cushion cover, skilfully produced from recycled wool clothing.
The resulting fabric has a felt-like feel, and if you look closely you can even see the flecks of the different coloured garments that have been used to make the thread the cushions are woven from.
Unwanted clothing is collected through recycling programmes around the world, and shipped back to India for sorting and reworking. Although initially this seems a long way for the clothing to travel, it is actually an advantage for the many container ships returning to India to have some weight on board.
Once it arrives in India the clothing is sorted into fabric type and colour. Our supplier uses wool and wool mix clothing only and the resulting fabric is a minimum of 65% wool, 35% other fibres (usually polyester and nylon). The clothing is cleaned, broken down, made into fibres, spun into yarn and then woven into fabric. The fabric colour is a result of the original wool fabrics - no dyes are added.

ReSpiin is a homeware brand that has been created to showcase stylish recycled and renewable textiles. It has been exciting to see the developments in sustainable textiles over the last few years, and we felt it was time to bring together some of the most innovative materials under one brand. Each material we use has a story to tell - whether that is about the way it grows or the journey it has been on.
ReSpiin is also about working directly with pioneering producers who add the most value possible to the materials they have to work with. We have visited each of the producers and have seen first hand how they take pride in what they produce and in how they treat their workforce.
