African-Textiles

Leading the industry for textile Recycling in full compliance with the Global Recycling Standard (GRS Certification).

Global Challenge

Recycling in textiles is a sustainable practice which is favorable to the environment in a great extent. Recycling help to reduce the carbon footprints left behind by the industry.

Garment & textile industry gone through a complex manufacturing process where a huge amount of electricity, water, and other energy sources are used. Recycling yarn plays a great role of saving energy by reducing or eliminating vast quantities of fertilizers, pesticides, chemicals & water use to cultivate cotton crop.

We are committed to adopt this global trend as our sustainable practice

SUSTAINABLE RAW MATERIALS

TURNING WASTE FABRIC BACK INTO FIBRE

The Vision on Sustainability

At ROSHAWA we partnered with Global Recycling Standard (GRS) with the mission to reclaim this textile waste, and turn it into new fibers and yarns. We wanted to play our part in creating a more sustainable garment industry by reducing textile waste and avoiding it from ending up in landfills.

 

We aim to provide an alternative, more sustainable source of raw material for the textile industry. We aim to do this locally, to avoid using resources and emitting CO2 in the transportation of the jooth, and mechanically, to avoid having to use any water, dyes or chemicals in the process.

 

This way we could significantly reduce the environmental impact of the yarn production. We aim to close the loop on this booming industry by re-using the textile waste from the garment factories, recycling it into new yarns, and returning it to those same garment factories again, so that they in turn can use it to produce new fabrics and garments for their customers.

THE RECYCLING PROCESS

Textile Waste Sourcing

The cutting waste (locally known as Jooth) from garment manufacturers is the aggregated raw material we use in recycling process.

 

We normally use white/ grey color Jhoot -as our finished yarn is white/grey in color. But if customer demands; we also use required colored/ dyed Jhoot or blend different shades for achieving esteemed match.

 

Our committed procurement team never fails to source best raw materials from the market as per production requirements.

Blending Recycled Textile Waste
4. MIXING

As per customer requirement- we mix various types of fiber for achieving targeted length & quality, such as: recycled viscose, polyester, acrylic etc.

 

We also blend for colors, various shades in pre-calculated ratio to achieve output as per customer’s requirement

Textile Waste Sorting
2. sorting

Firstly- we manually sort for color, hard waste etc.

 

Then we check till we achieve our targeted quality by eliminating any contaminations found in raw materials.

After completion of sorting- raw materials are transferred to core recycling process.

5. spinning

The components of cotton fibers are twisted together in this process to form yarn.

At first- bales are opened in blow-room section for cleaning the fibers by removing the dirt and dust. Then fibers transferred to carding section where fibers are condensed to form a thick continuous untwisted filament called sliver. Most of the impurities are removed in this process.

·         Next in drawing process-  the fiber arrangement in the sliver improves to make the fibers got parallel to the sliver length.

·         Hooked, curled and crimped fibers present in the sliver also straightened in this section. Straightened sliver turns into roving into Simplex section. At last, in ring section- roving are drafted up to required level according to the yarn count to be spun. 

Recycling textile waste into fibre
3. recycling

We are using recycle plant with latest technology which offer fully open-end automatic operations system till the end of process. Our environment friendly recycle plant offers long-time processing without heat-generation & little noise. Running through the machine- yarns and fabric are broken into smaller pieces before pulling them apart into raw fiber. Our expertise team give their enormous effort achieving the maximum yarn length which is the base of premium yarn.

Processed fiber then turned into bale in our bale press section then passed to mixing section. 

Yarn testing at ROSHAWA Quality Lab
6. TESTING

Equipped with latest testing machineries, our in house quality section lab is operated by trained professional technical team who ensure quality output in every section of production.

Knitting Recycled Yarn
7. knitting/weaving

The yarns are knitted or woven depending on the final use of the fabric.

Finishing Recycled Yarn
8. finishing

Also depending on the final use of the fabric, there are multiple ways of finishing the process, such as compacting, brushing and washing.
