A frontrunner in textile recycling
As an innovative sorting company with a sustainable mission, Wieland Textiles has a long track-record as a frontrunner in the processing and sales of discarded textiles. Every year, this Dutch company recycles about 9 million kilo of discarded textiles and closes the loop by upcycling these fibers as renewable cloths and new valuable materials for new products. No less than 300 sortings of second-hand garments and shoes find their way to markets in Europe, Asia and Afrika. In the past years, Wieland has invested substantially in the research and development of Fibersort, a technological innovation that enables the company to scan and sort garments into uniform categories of fibers with specified compositions, colours and/or structures. With this technology, Wieland and its partners intend to unleash a sustainable revolution in the global textile industry: the production of new garments with fibers from discarded textiles.
