Making your home feel cozy whilst keeping in mind what impact we have can be tricky, this is why we have added ReSpiin to our products to help.
They look great, feel great whilst offering ethically branding which helps us the consumer know exactly where we are buying from which is 100% ethical.
The ReSpiin cushions and throws are made from recycled wool.
Unwanted clothing is collected through recycling programmes around the world, and shipped back to India for sorting and reworking. Although initially this seems a long way for the clothing to travel, it is actually an advantage for the many container ships returning to India to have some weight on board.
Once it arrives in India the clothing is sorted into fabric type and colour. Our supplier uses wool and wool mix clothing only and the resulting fabric is a minimum of 65% wool, 35% other fibres (usually polyester and nylon). The clothing is cleaned, broken down, made into fibres, spun into yarn and then woven into fabric. The fabric colour is a result of the original wool fabrics – no dyes are added.
ReSpiin suppliers are SA8000 certified organisation. The SA8000 standard is one of the world’s first auditable social certification standards for decent workplaces. It sets out the requirements to be met by organisations, including the establishment or improvement of workers’ rights, workplace conditions and an effective management system. Audits are carried out annually. They are also compliant with ISO:9001:2008 quality management system standards.
