Dyed by hand & made out of 100% recycled textile waste
Mindful Tie-dye Mania

To celebrate summer and the arrival of our newest print: Sunset tie-dye, we teamed up with tie-dye sisters Therese and Julie from Thalaluna, who creates unique and handmade products.

All products in the Copenhagen Cartel x Thala Luna collection are made from 100% organic recycled yarn.

Valuable Waste

We use textile waste, an otherwise valueless material, to recycle it back into premium quality products. We have chosen to concentrate on cotton since it's the most used yet least recycled fabric, and demands an unbearable amount of water to grow.

We use a mix of two raw materials - mechanically recycled cotton cutting clips collected from CMT factories*, and polyester from recycled PET bottles. No harmful chemicals are used in the production.

Composition: 60% recycled cotton, 40% recycled polyester, weight 180-190 g

Care for the Planets ressources

1 unisex sweatshirt saves 6200 liters of water

1 unisex t-shirt saves 2700 liters of water 

1 kids t-shirt saves 1900 liters of water

Each product is marked with a water-saving print to tell how much water the product has saved.

The production

The available resources are used as efficiently as possible to minimise harmful environmental impacts. 90% of the energy used in the factory comes from wind power. Waste is recycled from bio-toilets for cultivation, and to produce cooking gas for our workers. The fence surrounding the factory is made of 56 000 recycled plastic bottles. The factory is located in a dry area, so water usage is regulated. There is a well, and a water pipe built to the factory that benefits people living in the area.
