Hi, thanks for showing an interest in recycled cotton fabric by the yard in Vietnam. Below are examples of recycled cotton fabrics made in Vietnam. If you don’t see your exact fabric then let’s work together to design it. Ask us about our fabric development services. Our sustainable fabric technicians based in Ho Chi Minh City are standing by to make your perfect Eco fabric. Our team has experience producing recycled cotton fabric by the yard in Vietnam.
A few years ago, we started focusing on Eco friendly fabrics like recycled cotton fabric by the yard in Vietnam. The journey has been challenging because yarn suppliers have very high minimum order quantities (MOQ). For example a typical MOQ for yarn is 5,000 kg. This quantity will make around 15,000 meters of fabric. Is it too much for you? If yes, don’t worry, we have a solution. We have available stock of Eco yarns in our sister company www.greenyarn.vn to accommodate small orders. Contact us for more details about recycled cotton fabric by the yard in Vietnam.

According to the Textile Recycling Council, we throw away more than 11 billion pieces of textile waste each year. The majority of textile waste is made with cotton fabric. Cotton textile waste is an opportunity for us to promote recycled cotton fabric by the yard in Vietnam.
What is recycled cotton?
Recycled cotton is cotton fabric transformed into cotton fibers that can be reused to make new cotton textile. Recycled cotton is also known as reclaimed or regenerated cotton. It is produced from two sources. One source is post-consumer material like secondhand clothing and clothes thrown away. The second source is pre-consumer material, like textile waste created in sewing factories. During the garment manufacturing process, strips of fabric are cut out and not used. These strips are clean and can be recycled. Pre-consumer material is the primary source of recycled cotton because secondhand clothing requires a labor-intensive process to sort through and clean. It is difficult to recycle used fabrics due to various color shades, fabric blends, care labels, embroidery and screen printing inks in the fabric. Recycled cotton fabric by the yard in Vietnam is becoming a reality day by day.
How is fabric turned back into fiber?
Cotton is recycled using mechanical processes. The first step to making recycled cotton is to sort the waste fabric according to color, composition and quality. After they have been sorted, the fabrics are shredded. This process is likely to lower the cotton’s quality because the chopping-up shortens the staple length of the cotton fibers. The raw fiber is then spun back into a yarn for reuse in new clothing material.
Recycled cotton contains shorter fibers which is why it is usually found in combination with other textile fibres.
Benefits of recycled cotton
● Recycled cotton can find new life in many different low-grade products such as mop heads, insulation, rags, and stuffing.
● Recycled cotton requires energy but still has a much lower energy expenditure than standard cotton. It also requires very little water.
● Cotton cultivation accounts for almost 1/4 of the world’s insecticide use; recycled cotton requires no chemicals.
● Recycling cotton diverts many products from their way to landfill.
● Since recycled fabrics are sorted by color, they are already dyed and don’t require further processing or use of chemicals.
● Emissions of CO2 and other fossil fuels are reduced compared to regular cotton.
Challenges and inconveniences of recycled cotton
● Recycling cotton is not always achievable, especially when the old clothes are made of a mixture of cotton and synthetic fibers. A poor quality cotton garment will therefore be very difficult to recycle, which is why it is important to be very careful with the clothes we buy.
● Shredding cotton to turn it back into yarn weakens it; therefore recycled fibers have to be mixed with other fibers. Recycled cotton can not be endlessly recycled.
● Any amount of recycled product will impact the yarn and fabric properties such as length, strength, evenness and uniformity.
● A new cloth can not be made from more than 30% of recycled cotton.
Because of the tiring shredding process, the fiber may break and recycled cotton needs to be blended with other fibers to make new garments. But if the recycled cotton’s fiber staple length is shorter than the virgin fiber, then the recycled cotton’s shorter fibers will likely be combed out during the combing process. What does that mean? Say you want your fabric to be 75% virgin fiber and 25% recycled cotton; the combing process may unbalance the scale and reduce the actual proportion of recycled cotton, leading to inaccurate product claims. What should you do to address this?
● add more fiber to the input — for example 70% of virgin fiber and 30% of recycled cotton — to account for the expected loss
● or assess the amount of recycled material in the fabric output AFTER the combing process.

Knowing what you buy and choose it’s wisely, because sustainable lifestyle can be very simple its can be just a matter of choice. Also when more consumer choose sustainable products than more supplier switch to sustainable
Careful disposal is vital for the environment, as there are many harmful material not only damage to the ecosystem but also harming to our live.
Understand and verify and choose only sustainable material for production can save a lot environmental issue. Whereas the cost to the environment out weight any cost because it is directly affecting our future
Produce with responsibility and knowledge, understand that our product come with a cost to the environment. Try hard and ﬁght hard to cut down this cost and aiming for a fully environmentally friendly manufacture.
Invent with a cause, because making a better product is no longer enough. Innovator need to consider the environmental cause of their invention as well.
