New Focus Textiles, Ltd.

Circular Fabric Operations

New Focus Textiles is a recycled cotton fabric supplier and specialist for circular loop fabric up-cycling.  With headquarters in Hong Kong and production facilities in Asia and Europe, we partner with fashion brands, hotels, and schools to scale-up pre- and post-consumer circular loop fabric up-cycling with fabric take-back and mechanical fabric recycling.  We create circular fabric collections and finished products made from recycled cotton.

Mechanical fabric recycling is the cornerstone for our recycled cotton fabric development and material waste utilization.  Specifically, mechanical recycling is very low for water and chemical consumption.  It is an important step in a closed-loop pre- and post-consumer circular fabric up-cycling process.

recycled cotton fabric supplier

Our company is committed to circular cotton fabric development from pre-and post-consumer textile wastes.  As a GRS-certified recycled cotton fabric supplier, we launch seasonal new collections using recycled cotton.  Trendy woven fabric collections include recycled cotton blend fabrics with natural traceable cotton and linen.  We are pleased to be included here in a list of recycled cotton suppliers by Cotton, Incorporated.  

US virgin cotton is our chief fiber for our woven fabric development process because it is a 100% natural cellulosic crop with the ability to be recycled mechanically and biodegrade.  We use a mechanical fabric recycling process and special yarn spinning techniques to create fine recycled cotton yarns in up to 40/1 single size for fashion apparel and home textiles.  Continuous development has been essential to our efforts to improve sustainable fabric collections.  Explore our education and circular loop fabric up-cycling program here.

ESG Savings Dashboard

Recycled Cotton Fabric Suppliers ESG savings from CIRCULAR FABRIC PRODUCTION with mechanical fabric recycling

We provide ESG savings and resource consumption savings data to our fashion buyers who buy and develop using our recycled cotton fabric developments and circular fabric collections.  Industry benchmarks are more easily targeted and realized for improvement in future seasons with data recording and information sharing.   We monitor the environmental savings in an ESG Dashboard.  Additional information about our mechancial fabric recycling in the above post about our recycled cotton fabric supply chain processes. 

Interestingly, our most recent academic contribution is found here in the publication “Life Cycle Environmental Impact Assessment of Cotton Recycling and the Benefits of a Take-Back System.”  Using the Life Cycle Assessment model, we are able to calculate the Environmental ESG resource savings by mechanical fabric recycling of cotton fibers into our woven fabric production for fashion brands and hotels.

Circular Fabric Development: Giordano's Support for School Garment Upcycling and Fabric Recycling in China

Giordano Supports School Garment Upcycling Initiative and Fabric Recycling in China

This month in Foshan China, Giordano participated alongside our team in an on-going school uniform circular up cycling sustainability project. Here, we had the pleasure of introducing another school to the textile recycling process and encourage students to participate in fabric circularity by donating old/worn uniforms. A huge thanks to Giordano for donating towards new GRS-recycled cotton uniform shirts! Our mission is to inspire schools and textile industry leaders to collaborate towards circular fabric development. This is the third School Uniforms Circular Upcycling sustainability project and it has been a great success having Giordano’s involvement.

developing circular fabric collections from natural, recycled, and cellulosic fibers

LENZING™ fabric manufacturer and long-standing partner in development

Planning the product development and material selection is vital to determining whether a product will later be able to be circular or recyclable.  Considering the material up-cycling process begins from the design phase.  Thus, choosing natural and recyclable fibers is a critical step in planning the circularity and lifecycle of a product.  

Upcycling fabric waste is just one way to build circularity into the product supply chain for textile-rich industries such as fashion and hospitality.   Another way to build circularity into textile programs is selecting fabrics and materials from circular and biodegradable fibers.  For example, selecting fabrics made from a blend of recycled cotton with traceable cotton is improving the circularity of materials.  

Known globally as a brand for circular materials production, LENZING™ pioneers some of the world’s most influential and fiber innovations.  New Focus is pleased to align with LENZING™ in product categories and visions for more a more sustainable textile and clothing industry.  Some of our circular fabric collections incorporate LENZING™ ECOVERO™ and TENCEL™ fibers with REFIBRA™ technology.  REFIBRA™ is a new fiber made using 20% pulp from recycled cotton fabric waste.
