Wieland Textiles: Leader in textile recycling
As an innovative sorting company with a sustainable mission, Wieland Textiel has been a leader in the processing of collected textiles for many years. Every year this Zaanse company brings back around 9 million kilos of used textiles back into the loop in the form of reusable clothing and valuable raw materials for new products. No less than 300 assortments of second-hand clothing find their way to sales markets in Asia, Europe and Africa thanks to Wieland. In recent years, the company has invested heavily in the research and development of Fibersort, a technical innovation with which used garments can be scanned and sorted according to the composition, color and structure of the material. With this technology, Wieland is working together with chain partners on a sustainable revolution in the global textile industry: production of new clothing with fibers from used textiles!
