The first step in Fiber Farming entails distinguishing rewearable textiles from non-rewearables and then selling them in large quantities around the globe.

INTRODUCTION

Textiles2Textiles is an ambitious organization based in Wormerveer, the Netherlands. We focus on textile reuse in its ultimate form. Our aim is to deploy technological innovations in order to literally reuse every garment and fiber. This is what makes us different.

Our main product is PCC (Post Consumer Clippings). It is a unique solution that is used as feedstock for the textile manufacturing industry. Our Fiber Farms are the only producers in the world to process non-rewearable post-consumer textiles into valuable circular resources that are homogeneous, clean and traceable.

While our vision was born in the Netherlands, our quest extends far beyond our native country. This is because we have developed a unique physical and digital infrastructure that can be replicated in Fiber Farms worldwide. Our mission stems from our founders: sorting company Wieland Textiles and supply chain software developer Retail Experts.

PROCESS

01

Removing contamination

Feedstock is provided by textile collectors. This feedstock contains non-textile contamination. This contamination (10-15%) is separated from the textiles in this first step.

02

Simple sorting

The textiles are sorted into product type (shoes, clothes, bags, etc.) and rewearability. The main categories of rewearable products are created and non-rewearable textiles are categorized in this process step.

03

Fiber sorting

Non-rewearable textiles are sorted according to composition and color within a fully automated process.

04

Cutting & Cleaning

After the fiber sorting process,
the buttons, zippers and labels are removed from the garments using a unique fully-automated C&C installation.

05

Supplying recyclers

Following the C&C process, the output is ready to be supplied to mechanical or chemical recyclers. We seek to supply output exclusively to high-value recyclers.
