Created in 1948, Filatures Du Parc is specialized in long staple fibers & yarns for knitwear. Named “Entreprise du patrimoine vivant”: a mark of recognition of the French State, put in place to reward French firms for the excellence of their traditional and industrial know-how.
THE SCIENCE OF RECYCLING FASHION
Since 2006, Filatures du Parc is constantly improving its expertise into mechanical recycling. They turn old garments coming from brand partners or textile collectors and recycled them into Post-Consumer Recycled yarn for denim, knitwear and car industries. This process of « defibering » preserves the fiber allowing the company to offer you Post-Consumer Recycled yarns of quality and longevity. Filatures du Parc recycle and blend all types of fibers but are specialized in « noble fibers » (wool, silk, …).
