The Recover™ Lab

Our RColorBlend products go through several intimate blending processes in our laboratory until achieving the perfect combination of performance and color matching accuracy. The RColorBlend recipes developed in the lab are later reproduced on an industrial scale.

1. Demand planning

2. Color development

3. Recipe development

4. Recipe to production

We receive an estimation of textile waste periodically, with the possible colors to develop our RColorBlend products.

According to the available stock, we create a catalogue of possible colors using a carrier fiber, to follow market trends and respond the brands’ demands.

The Lab Team (also called Kitchen) makes a series of tests and blends to create the needed color (blending RCotton with organic cotton or recycled polyester). The carrier fiber is colored or natural depending on the desired final color.

The final recipe is adapted to an industrial scale, ready for production.

The RColorBlend process

Recover™ dye-free fiber is blended with other carriers’ fibers that have been low-impact dyed to create new RColorBlend fibers. RColorBlend fibers are delivered ready to be spun, without the need of blending or dyeing.
