Rfiveproject® support and share the traceability to our clients throughout all process, as:

  • collecting waist;
  • recycling;
  • spinning;
  • knitting;
  • manufacture.

All chain information is provided to achieve a truly circular fashion process.

The process is supported with GRS certification and LCA methodology. The partnership with Recutex, a recycling Portuguese company and FIAVIT, a spinning Portuguese company turns this project an “all made in Portugal circular economy.” It´s a closed loop.

We collect pre- and post-consumer waste from the brands and manufacturers. Then, we transform it them according to the needs of the brand in a new fiber, new yarn, new fabric, new cloths. The eco-design starts here!
