Rooted in Circularity

is a visual storytelling experience by renowned photographer Estela de Castro that documents Recover™ and the Ferre family, and the core values that they uphold.

At the heart of Recover™, the leader in mechanically recycled cotton, is a family's legacy of building a more sustainable future together.

THE PROJECT'S ROOTS

Highlighting the unseen side of fashion to spark a worldwide conversation about the clothes we wear, where they come from, who made them, and their impact on the world we share.

Capturing the intersection of materials science and fashion, so we can connect people with real world solutions. According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (2021), less than 1% of textile waste is recycled into new textiles. We’re here to change that. The future of circular textiles, and circular fashion, is here.
