3C Filati is the first company in its sector to offer a 100% recycled product, although 65% is sufficient.
3C Filati is a certified producer of the GRS and Cardato Recycled mark. This guarantees that the yarn is produced in the Prato district; that it contains at least 65% recycled material (garments or rejects of textile production); and that environmental impact of the entire production cycle has been quantified regarding three parameters: water and energy consumption, and CO2 emissions.
The combing process breaks used garments down into recycled fibres, divided by colours and types. They are then spun and put on the market.
To date, five companies have obtained the Cardato Recycled certification. 3C Filati is one of these.
