Gmega Weekly Recommendation - RE-Generated Coffee Knits



RE-Generated Coffee Knits


COFFEE FIBER

This technology, with a low-temperature, high-pressure and

energy saving process, combines coffee grounds onto

the yarn surface, changing the characteristics of the filament,

and offers up to 200% faster drying time compared to cotton.


Coffee grounds eliminate odors, and can be combined with polyester

from recycled plastic bottles to make fabric.

It also dries fast.


Additionally, coffee can protect pigments and fibers

from ultraviolet rays, and it is great for waterproofing.


The coffee-laced fabric provides an alternative to cotton, a water-intensive crop.

A single shirt of cotton requires 2,700 liters of water.

Coffee grounds are free, and recycled plastic bottles have smaller

carbon footprints than their non-recycled counterparts.


One T-shirt can be made with three cups of coffee grounds and five recycled plastic bottles.
