American Apparel has proudly partnered with Giotex USA, a textile recycling company that turns our excess cotton fibers and clippings into a high-quality, cotton-blend yarn. We then purchase the Giotex yarn back and use it to knit beanies, sweaters and other garments. This closed-circle recycling reduces landfill usage, cuts down on water waste by using fabric that is already dyed, conserves land by not having to grow new cotton, simplifies the manufacturing process—reducing energy and resource usage, and, of course, makes it easy to know exactly where our materials are coming from.
