Hilana - Our Concept
We just want to make beautiful things and inspire a sustainable way of living by reusing and recycling cotton.
Every year around 100 billion items of clothing are being produced, around 80 billion are being purchased and over half ends up in landfills, taking decades to decompose. In the United States alone, over 21 billion pounds of clothing end up in landfills... The future of the textile industry is here: no waste, no dyes, no chemicals, no extra water through closed loop upcycling methods.
During the past 3 years we have been able to upcycle more than 5 tons of cotton waste and saved more than 15 million of water.
We believe that big changes start with small steps, and in innovation as part of our daily life. That is why we started this project: to make every day better.
We take great care in reviewing the details throughout the entire creative process, all the way until the final product is finished. We strive to add extra value to the experience.
WE LOVE COLORS
But we also love a healthy environment.
That's why we offer a wide range of colors and styles, but in a sustainable way. Our rainbow is 100% environmentally friendly without dyes or chemicals involved during the manufacturing process.
This is part of our #zerowastejourney
THE BEAUTIFUL RESULT…
Now you know how we make sustainable, soft and beautiful towels, bathrobes, throws and ponchos, through a responsible, conscious and clean method.
That is why we are a trade certified B Corporation, since better practices make wonders.
If you want to do something unique and innovative, you have to think out of the box.
This is how we found an excellent opportunity in a serious problem...
The textile waste
Everyday, tons of textile waste arrive at our factory in Turkey. There is where all those bales are put through 4 different processes to become our raw material: reconstituted cotton.
All these fabric pieces are separated by color. Then crushed to be mixed with virgin cotton and thus become a new thread, a reconstituted one. Thanks to this process the new fiber is more resistant and durable
Now you know how we make sustainable, soft and beautiful towels, spa robes and ponchos, through a responsible, conscious and clean method.
This effective process is why we believe that better working conditions make wonders.
Can you explain how the Cotton Regeneration process works?
Regenerated cotton is an innovative recycled fiber. Using scraps of new cotton cloth left over from clothing manufacture waste, this process is called cotton “regeneration” because it creates new yarn from pre-consumed fabric that is otherwise waste.
By choosing regenerated textiles you are helping diminish the amount of waste going into landfills as well as saving all the water, chemicals, electricity and sewage energy it would take to make the same things from virgin cotton.
