Recycling & upcycling
Vivant also uses paper flanges that can be reused and recycled. We do not only make sure that materials are recycled, but also upcycling plays an important role. Making something useful and beautiful out of leftovers. Within our collection we have, for example, Recycled silk lint, Recycled silk fiber balls en Re-use cord.
All remnants of silk (particularly from the saree) are collected and cut to the desired width. Narrow strips are then sewn together and, if desired, dyed in a requested shade. The result is a ribbon consisting of silk remnants.
Recycled silk fiber balls
Silk fabric waste is cut into strips, broken and then carded. During carding, the relatively short fibers are prepared for spinning. The fibers are first cleaned, unraveled and joined together using a comb with small spikes (card brush). After this process, it can be pulled and spun into yarn, creating recycled silk fiber balls.

Pieces of yarn that have been cut or rejected can no longer be used at factories. These yarns are collected and twisted together with other yarns to form a “new” cord. In this way, a beautiful product is developed from residual material.
