Textile Recycling Journals

Textile recycling is that the process of recovering fiber, yarn or fabric and reprocessing the textile material into useful products. Textile waste products are gathered from different sources and are then sorted and processed counting on their condition, composition, and resale value. The end results of this processing can vary, from the assembly of energy and chemicals to new articles of clothing. Due to a recent trend of over consumption and waste generation in global fashion culture, textile recycling has become a key focus of worldwide sustainability efforts. Globalization has led to a "fast fashion" trend where clothes are considered by many consumers to be disposable thanks to their increasingly lower prices. The development of recycled technology has allowed the textile industry to supply vast amounts of products that deplete natural resources. Textile recycling techniques are developed to deal with this increase of textile waste and new solutions are still being researched. Recently, certain clothing retailers have embraced this recycling effort and now publicly advertise products that are made from recycled textile material in accordance with shifting consumer expectations. Most materials utilized in textile recycling are often split into two categories: pre-consumer and post-consumer waste. Pre-consumer or post-industrial waste consists of textile waste produced at the economic stage of the assembly of textile material. Typically, these byproducts are produced by the textile, garment, cotton, and fiber industries and are repurposed by the furniture, home building, automotive, and other industries.
