Series No. 7000 The Land Healer
HANDWOVEN WITH RECYCLED COTTON FIBER
The Land Healer series is an enabler of circular economy.
This unique textile is expertly handwoven by weavers in Bangalore, India, using thread spun from recycled fibers, therefore, not requiring any new raw materials.
The dutch innovator Sympany mechanically shreds textile waste collected from the garment industry resulting in fibers ready to be recycled back into the supply chain. It is then expertly spun into yarn, then into thread, which is finally setup on handlooms to manually weave yardage of fabric. The handlooms on which the Land Healer is woven requires no electricity and is therefore non-polluting.
Environmental impact per 50m of handwoven recycled cotton:
- 15 kg virgin cotton fabric prevented from heading to landfill
- 63,000 liters of water saved
- 45 kg of CO2 prevented
- 0 polluting/harmful chemicals used
- 9 days of fair paid work for highly skilled spinners, dyers, handloom weavers of south India
- These craftswomen and men are trained in and deeply knowledgeable about traditional textile weaving methods rooted in the history of Indian subcontinent - the Land Healer is a tangible proof of that and proud to be borne out of an ancient cultural tradition
