Print your design on recycled material. That's sustainable! It is possible at House of U. We are working hard to produce clothing in a more sustainable way and we are certified to the GRS, which certified recycled material from the source to final printed fabric. For example, we have a wide range of GRS-certified fabrics on which you can print your unique design. A sustainable choice, without compromising quality or softness. From elegant and flexible fabrics for summer clothing to heavier fabrics for curtains or pillows, House of U offers a solution.
GRS: What is this?
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international quality mark for recycled clothing. The label indicates that at least 20% of the fabric consists of recycled material. At House of U we strive that all our U-circular fabrics consists of more than 80% recycled material and all of our recycled polyester is certified to the GRS.
We are Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified, 1194575. Only the products which carry the global Recycled Standard label and claim are certified. We think it is important to work more and more with these sustainable fabrics. With this label, both our customers and ourselves know that the fabrics are manufactured in good working conditions and with maximum preservation of materials. Where fabrics would normally be thrown away, they are now recycled for reuse. In this way we limit the environmental impact of producing clothing as much as possible.
At House of U we have several fabrics with this certificate. These fabrics are within our U-Circular collection. We are happy to tell you more about these fabrics.
U-Circular, made of recycled polyester
U-Circular is a collection of House of U with a base of recycled polyester, also called Rpet. Rpet is the first step towards recycling from PET drinking bottles. These bottles become a recyclable material that can be used to produce new fashion fabrics.
Using Rpet to produce clothing fits perfectly with the vision of House of U! Waste is reused and less raw materials are needed to produce new clothing.
