You gave us old tees.
We gave them a new life.

How we did it

We use your old tees to create one of the most sustainable fabrics out there.
Step 1
You gave us your old tees. We sorted them out by color.
Step 2
Then, we broke ‘em down to the fiber level.
Step 3
We added recycled plastic and TENCEL™ Lyocell for durability to create the yarn.
Step 4
Your new(ish) favorite tee is born.

Re-Spun FAQs

Pretty good answers to your really good questions.
  • What kind of tees will you accept?
    We'll take pretty much anything, but cotton tees are ideal. The only thing we can't recycle is activewear fabric — the spandex is hard to break down.
  • Where are you sending them?
    Spain, where our partner factory is. They've been recycling fabrics since the '40s, when they were looking for a solution to the textile shortage caused by WWII. And they're one of the only places in the world with this technology.
  • How long will you be collecting shirts?
    Forever. (Or at least until we go out of business.) But seriously. We want Re-Spun to be a core part of what we do — and t-shirts are just the beginning. We're working hard to expand the program to other kinds of products. Stay tuned.
