Our focus is textile recycling. Textiles left over from other people's productions are recycled and used for new home textiles; saving 50% water and 30% energy in the process.
"There is a lot of talk about recycling, but few can do it like we do." - Jan Franck, Owner & CEO.
On an autumn day in 2012, work began on trying to develop a new manufacturing process that could recycle as much as possible of textile waste from other company's productions.
With the help of two engineers and students, after 7 years of work we are now able to produce, with the help of our long-standing colleagues and supplier in India, new interior textiles from 99% recycled material.
For us, it’s very simple. What we do today shapes our tomorrow. This is the backbone of recycled by wille – our driving force to always think longer and try to get better.
Earth’s resources are not limitless and, as far as we know, there is no planet B to lean on. Even if there were, we shouldn’t take the risk.
Over the course of many long years of involvement in the textile industry, we have seen a lot. Many really good things, and unfortunately, some really bad things.
But because we believe in sustainable development, that everything can change and that nothing is impossible, Recycled by Eille grew from what we saw. All because we wanted to make a difference – we still do, and will always want to.
You can follow the herd, or you can do what we do. We use materials left over from other textile productions and create new products from what would have otherwise gone to waste.
Simply put, old becomes new, saving both water and energy – 50% water and 30% energy to be exact, compared with productions using only new materials.
Our products consist of 99% recycled material and we strive to cause as little negative impact on the environment and people as possible. Most products consist of 80% recycled cotton and 20% recycled polyester, which is a very high percentage of cotton compared to our competitors.
Because we collect, sort and process other companies’ waste fabrics, we can create new products without re-dyeing or adding chemicals.
We put our energies into saving the world instead of mixing up batches of the season’s trendiest colours. Let there be no doubt – recycling is the new black.
“We go our own way, but we’d rather do it with you”
Being a small company is perhaps one of our biggest strengths. It allows us to be flexible, brave and able to take quick decisions based on what we see that works and what doesn’t.
By focusing on the little details, we can create a better and more resource-efficient whole. It embodies our vision.
For us, being environmentally aware is also about taking social responsibility. We have a very close relationship with the people who physically manufacture our products. This makes it personal. Very personal.
Every action we take is like dropping a stone in a pond – it creates ripples. The more of us who take responsibility and make active choices for a better tomorrow today, the greater the effect.
Thank you for also thinking about tomorrow, today.
