In a new multi-year agreement, two innovators within the textile industry, Recover™ and Polopiqué, have partnered together to achieve sustainable manufacturing and provide end-to-end solutions for the fashion industry.
Polopiqué is a leading textiles company that distinguishes itself by its innovation and verticality. The Portuguese company masters all stages of the textile production process, from spinning, weaving and finishing, to the design and commercialization of high-quality products. By incorporating Recover™ fiber into its process, the two companies can support brands and retailers at every step in the supply chain and create an easy solution for brands to produce fully sustainable apparel, at scale.
The Portuguese company is dedicated to scaling through the sustainable vertical integration of its production cycle into the industry's value chain and its products to date contain at least 50% organic cotton and GRS certified recycled polyester. With the adoption of Recover´s lowest-impact recycled cotton fiber, the company will further reduce its ecological footprint.
By partnering together, the two companies also offer an increased global reach and proximity to the customer, with Polopiqué already exporting to 47 countries and working with 1065 partners worldwide and Recover™ creating new production hubs in Bangladesh and Pakistan in 2021, to support the current market demand.
Polopiqué and Recover™ bring decades of combined experience in their respective fields in the textile industry. Under the new partnership, they both provide brands with the opportunity to take advantage of Recover’s recycled cotton fibers across its product lines, as well as helping them reach their sustainability goals and combat the environmental issues that the use of cotton creates.
