RECYCLED POLYESTER
Our GRS certified yarns

MIC's GRS range consists of yarns made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester, certified GRS 2019-210.

Once the waste PET packaging (mainly plastic bottles and caps) is collected, it is shredded and transformed into small agglomerates called 'chips', which will be used by spinning mills to produce new raw fibre, which is then processed and twisted to create new recycled polyester yarn.

The GRS certification tracks the recycled polyester supply chain to ensure the recycled content in the intermends and finished garments.
